Keitzad m'rakdin lifnei hakalah?
Kalah naeh v'chasudah.
כֵּיצַד מְרַקְּדִין לִפְנֵי הַכַּלָּה?
כַּלָּה נָאָה וַחֲסוּדָה.


How do we dance before a bride? "A beautiful​ and modest bride."

Trans​lation by Gabe Seed


Based on a B'raita in Bavli Ketubot 16b-17a, where Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai debate whether one praises a bride "the way she is," or as a "beautiful and modest bride."

תנו רבנן: כיצד מרקדין לפני הכלה? בית שמאי אומרים: כלה כמות שהיא ובית הלל אומרים: כלה נאה וחסודה
