Ok so should brides be late for their ‘big day’?
Well tradition says they must, however this can do nothing for the grooms nerves! Not only does the groom nervously check his watch (some have been known to take them off and shake them) but also the registrar, vicar, photographer and just about everyone else.
Some local traditions even deliberately try to slow the progress of the bride to church, as in Wales, where country weddings are renounced for ‘unforeseen’ obstacles between the brides home and church.
So yes while tradition is a good thing then better to be just a moment or two late, than any lengthy delay as this eats into other timings throughout the day.
After all a wedding day is a hectic time with tight schedules and lots of emotion, so stick to the clock and have a great day.

Photo Quote: What I feel is that the picture-taking process, anyway a greater part of it, is an intuitive thing. You can't go out and logically plan a picture, but when you come back, reason then takes over and verifies or rejects whatever you've done. So that's why I say that reason and intuition are not in conflict--they strengthen each other. - Wynn Bullock

After "kidnapping" his bride, the groom would take her and go into hiding. By the time the bride's family tracked them down them, the bride would probably already be pregnant! A "bride price" would then be negotiated. An earlier source is the early Jewish custom of the bride and groom spending a week together alone immediately after the marriage feast. The earliest reference to this practice is Jacob's marriages to Leah and Rachel.
