Away the Bride
Traditionally, the father gives the
bride away. The origin of this custom is simple and not very pleasant:
in the days of yore, the father was literally turning over his property (the
bride!) to the groom. The custom has grown to represent the parents'
approval of the union. Elaine loves her father a lot, and he'll
be walking her down the aisle... but there won't be any "giving her away."
