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.

Wedding Trivia:OLDEST BRIDES
The oldest recorded bride was Minnie Munro, who got hitched at a sprightly 102 years of age. Minnie, from Australia, wed a toy boy of 82. Britain's oldest recorded bride was just one day off her 100th birthday when she took her vows with a man nearly 20 years her junior. Apparently the age gap was not thought to be a problem for them.
