Unless they take pictures before the ceremony, that is his first sight of the bride in all her glory. Of course he watches her!

Let him decide. It's his wedding, too. You're there to marry him, not to be the star of the show and get attention. Don't set yourself up to think that he'll cry, because if he doesn't then you'll be mad and that's not fair to him.

You've never been to a wedding have you? Yes, the groom is at the altar when the bride enters.

Depends on which side of the Atlantic Ocean you're on. In most parts of Europe (especially the Germanic and Scandinavian countries), the new couple enters and walks to the altar together, where the wedding party is waiting for them. In the United States and Canada, the wedding party AND the groom are waiting at the altar when the bride enters - most often by herself, but occasionally accompanied by a friend or relative who is not part of the wedding party.

This is one of those things that doesn't have a tradition, it just depends on the people getting married. My husband and I looked at each other while I walked down the aisle, and he did cry a little. I've seen other people not really look at each other, it really just depends.

Don't worry about if it's traditional or not, just do what feels right.
