[Meaning] to arrange/prepare a bride.

Same entry, according to Adler, in the Ambrosian Lexicon (381). The headword is aorist infinitive of numfostole/w, presumably extracted from somewhere.
LSJ s.v. notes that the verb can apply to escorting a 'bride or bridegroom'. The glossing of the present instance obviously indicates that it is an instance of the former.
See also nu 600.
