Y?????????????? I'll Tell You Why [See the post entitled Y??????]

There is a Talmudic principle that states that when one appoints his friend an agent, the agents deeds count only if he acted in accordance with the wishes of the sender."Ltkunee shadarteecha v'lo lĂ­vusi".

The Rabbi who makes the bracha on the wine under the chuppah is making the bracha on behalf of the Chosson and Kallah. If he makes a shehakol that is not a proper fulfillment of the wishes of the Chosson and Kallah. They sent him to make a borei pri hagofen! Hence in this situation a second bracha is called for. [Unlike a regular case where the shehakol would suffice.]

A VERY clever insight. [Thank you Rabbi Frank]
