comment No Blessing on marital relations?
Despite there not being a berakhah, various tefillot (including, but not limited to, various LeShem Yihhud versions) are encouraged before performing this mizwah. This is brought down in Hakham Mordekha'i Eliyahu's Darke'i Taharah in the section about preparations leading up to the mizwah.

comment What can we learn from the Jews being commanded to put blood on the doorposts of their homes in Egypt?
Thanks for the reminder, @Monica Cellio. The derashah is "Parashat Bo: The Lesson of the Moon" from 2014 and the segment I recalled when reading your answer is 11:25-30:25. R' Mansour basis this segment of his derashah on the Be'er Yosef (R' Yosef Salant).

comment What is the source for making a bride happy at her wedding?
In a Shelom Bayit pamphlet published by one of my Rabbanim from Yeshivat Aish HaTorah, he cites the same Tur you cited here. He brings down from this Tur (seeing as how the emphasis is on the bride) that the guests' job is, as you say, to endear the bride to her husband thereby helping them enter their marriage with utmost joy.
