There appears to be an uproar in "right leaning" circles caused by a bride and groom reciting the last 2 of the 7 blessings traditionally recited under a chuppah together. I have two questions about this:
1 – Assuming for the moment the issue is not one of gender, in my experience these blessing are recited by others and not the bride/groom. Is there a reason why this is so? Could these last 2 blessing, or in fact all 7 be recited solely by the bride/groom?
2 – Assuming the issue is one of gender would the issue be “kol isha”, “Kevod ha’tzibur” or something else that would prohibit a woman from reciting these blessings in public?

The article does not provide an explanation of the violation of halacha other than it not being the accepted norm.
