A common practice among Jewish couples is the tradition of the bride circling her groom seven times under the wedding canopy. Another tradition Jewish couples observe during wedding ceremonies is the breaking of a glass underfoot by the groom. When he does this, the wedding party shouts Mazel Tov! A dozen times. This is done because of the loss of the Temple in Jerusalem. It is recorded in a sacred Jewish book that during the joyous wedding of an important man, he took a glass of great value and shattered it, startling his guests. It means that in the midst of the most joyous occasion, one should never forget the destruction and loss of their Temple.
In many American weddings, it is tradition for the bride to throw her bouquet out to her guests. The person who catches it is said to be the one who will be the next to marry. In a typical American wedding, it is considered to be bad luck for the groom to see the wedding dress at anytime before the ceremony.
