The Gemara says that it is preferable for a woman to accept a Kidushin herself rather than by means of a Shali'ach because it is a greater Mitzvah to do a Mitzvah oneself without a Shali'ach. The Ran asks that marriage is only a Mitzvah for a man, not a woman, because a woman is not commanded in the Mitzvah of Peru u'Rvu. The Ran answers that it is still a Mitzvah for her to marry because she is helping the man perform his Mitzvah. The Korban Nesanel answers that although the Mitzvah of Peru u'Rvu does not apply to a woman, however the Mitzvah of Sheves (settling the world) does apply to her.


A person may appoint a Shali'ach to be Mekadesh a woman whether he specifies the woman or he instructs her to be Mekadesh any woman. The Shali'ach shall say 'you are Mekudeshes to Ploni.' However, if it is possible for the man to be Mekadesh the woman her himself it is forbidden to Mekadesh her by means of a Shali'ach unless he already knows her because of the concern that he will find her unattractive. However, even if he already knows her it is a Mitzvah to be Mekadesh her himself if possible. (Shulchan Aruch EH 35:1)
Only regarding a Mitzvah do we say that it is a Mitzvah to do it oneself without a Shali'ach, however regarding the Berachah on a Mitzvah one may l'Chatchilah allow another to recite the Berachah. (Chelkas Mechokek)
