Inn at Woburn :-
The Inn at Woburn is a hotel of great quality and charm and worlds away from its humble 18th Century origins as a coaching Inn. Owned and managed by the historic Bedford Estates, the hotel's reputation continues to flourish. Set in the heart of the Georgian village of Woburn, it is just eight miles from Milton Keynes and just off junction 12, 13 or 14 of the M1.
WHY IT BECAME "BAD LUCK" FOR THE GROOM TO SEE BRIDE BEFORE THE CEREMONY
Until relatively recently, brides were considered the property of their father. Their futures and husbands were arranged without their consent. The marriage of an unattractive woman was often arranged with a prospective groom from another town without either of them having ever seen their prospective spouse. In more than one instance, when the groom saw his future wife, usually dressed in white, for the first time on the day of the wedding, he changed his mind and left the bride at the altar. To prevent this from happening, it became "bad luck" for the groom to see the bride on the day of the wedding prior to the ceremony.
