Wedding kiss

I played at a wedding yesterday with my wind trio. We've done hundreds of weddings but this time the celebrant said something I've never heard before but was blindingly obvious in hindsight.

When they'd taken the vows he said, "You may now kiss your bride in public."

It never occurred to me before, that this tradition stemmed from giving permission to kiss in public.
