However there are many elements which many weddings share. This article will list a few to help you get started on planning your basic wedding ceremony. 

The Wedding Processional

The wedding processional is part of the whole wedding fantasy we had as children. This is the time when all the people in the wedding walk down the aisle. People who walk down the aisle could include the officiant, the groom and his party, the children in the wedding (flower girl, ring bearer), and bridesmaids and finally the bride.

Music and Readings

Most weddings include both music within the ceremony and readings. There are many kinds of readings that can be done at a wedding from the classic to the unusual. Many weddings choose readings from poetry, Shakespeare, The Bible and other Religious books. Modern weddings may include readings from literature, novels and even references to television and movies. 

Wedding Vows

After music, readings and religious services the bride and groom exchange vows. They may be traditional vows, a variation on traditional vows or vows which they wrote themselves. Many brides and grooms still tend to use the standard vows however there are many couples that feel that using vows that they wrote themselves helps to create a wedding with a deeper commitment and more meaning.
