On the nikah day when the عقد takes place in the Masjid, is it sunnah for the bride to remain at home?

Looking throughout the Sunnah I have not found any examples that indicate a woman staying at home during her marriage ceremony in the mosque as a sunnah. It is normal that due to gender separation that the women are separated from the nikah hall and permission is sought on their behalf by their wali (guardian), however, it is not a sunnah for the woman to stay at home.
