As part of the traditional wedding, there's a spiritual connection of starting off new with each other.
With the pouring of the water from the mud vase, they wash each other's hands. The groom pours the water onto his brides hands while she washes her hands. The bride does the same for her groom.
From that moment on, it's a fresh clean start and all that happened in the past stays there. Going into a new life with a clean start.
Wash off the past with a clean start.
