Fasting on Wedding Day

Question

Does a Jew fast during his/her marriage? I am asking because I have no idea about it.

  1. The custom to fast derives from the idea that the wedding day is considered to be like Yom Kippur – the Day of Atonement. The same way that we fast on Yom Kippur, so too do the bride and the groom fast on their wedding day.
