I think this would be "to steal the bride".

I think that bride is used when the woman is going to get married. I think this saying is used above all for girl friend or fiancée.

Aha ok so it' s basically to 'snatch someone' s girlfriend away', to steal someone else' s girlfriend (or fiancée) ?

Is this saying also used for 'novio' , i.e. to steal someone's boyfriend ?

¡Gracias!

Jaja, aquí las rubias están muy buscadas (las naturales, claro), pero tienen muy mala fama, sobre todo de tontas (yo también era rubia de jovencita, ahora soy castaña, y nunca he sido tonta... creo )

Creo que levantar en este caso es slang language.
