A traditional wedding ceremony begins with the processional. The processional is when the bridal party and immediate family walks down the aisle to their places at the front. A song picked by the couple is played while the everyone walks in, and transitioning another song played for the Bride as she walks down.
After everyone enters, the bridal party and officiant takes their places in the front of the ceremony. Below is a layout of where everyone should stand.
Once everyone is set, the officiant will begin with a welcome and introduction. Next, is the giving away of the Bride. From there is normally a couple of readings and then the officiant will address the couple and give them some words of wisdom. Next, the couple takes turns reciting or reading their vows to each other. After the vows are completed, the couple will exchange rings. The lighting of the unity candle, or any other unity ceremony, would then take place while a song is played. The officiant will pronounce them husband and wife. The marriage is then completed with the Kiss! Any closing remarks can be stated at this time. After that, is the recessional (processional in reverse) as another song chosen by the couple is played. Everyone exits the ceremony and heads to the cocktail hour.
