  Sahih Al-Bukari #7.81 Narrated 'Uqba:The Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said: "The stipulations most entitled to be abided by are those with which you are given the right to enjoy the (women's) private parts (i.e. the stipulations of the marriage contract)."
Sahih Al-Bukari #7.67 Narrated Abu Huraira: The Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam said, "A matron should not be given in marriage except after consulting her; and a virgin should not be given in marriage except after her permission." The people asked, "O Allah's Apostle! How can we know her permission?" He said, "Her silence (indicates her permission)."
Sahih Al-Bukari # 9.79 Narrated 'Aisha: I asked the Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam, "O Allah's Apostle! Should the women be asked for their consent to their marriage?" He said, "Yes." I said, "A virgin, if asked, feels shy and keeps quiet." He said, "Her silence means her consent."
Sahih Al-Bukari # 8.395 Narrated Anas: The Prophet sallallahu alayhe wa sallam seeing a yellow mark (of perfume) on the clothes of 'Abdur-Rahman bin 'Auf, said, "What about you?" 'Abdur-Rahman replied, "I have married a woman with a Mahr of gold equal to a date-stone." The Prophet said, "May Allah bestow His Blessing on you (in your marriage). Give a wedding banquet, (Walima) even with one sheep."
Sahih Al-Bukari # 6.103 Narrated Ibn Abbas: regarding the Divine Verse: "O you who believe! You are forbidden to inherit women against their will, and you should not treat them with harshness that you may take back part of the (Mahr) dower you have given them."   (4.19) (Before this revelation) if a man died, his relatives used to have the right to inherit his wife, and one of them could marry her if he would, or they would give her in marriage if they wished, or, if they wished, they would not give her in marriage at all, and they would be more entitled to dispose her, than her own relatives. So the above Verse was revealed in this connection.
Anas ibn Malik narrated in Sahih Al-Bukari #4.143 Then we reached Khaybar; and when Allah enabled him to conquer the fort (of Khaybar), the beauty of Safiyyah bint Huyayy ibn Akhtab was described to him. Her husband had been killed while she was a bride. So Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhe wa sallam selected her for himself and took her along with him until we reached a place called Sad-As-Sahba', where her menses were over and he took her for his wife. Hays (a kind of dish) was served on a small leather mat. Then Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhe wa sallam told me to call those who were around me. So that was the marriage banquet of Allah's Messenger sallallahu alayhe wa sallam and Safiyyah.
