The solution to this puzzle is not so easy as someone might expects.

I will publish a solution in the coming days.

However the overall strategy is to reject the first 37% of the brides and select the first after ..this gives the groom chances 1/3 to win..otherwise if he choses one without strategy his chances are 1/n=1/100 only!!!.
