It depends.  Are you having a religious ceremony? If so what religion?  Religious services have definite orders for things to happen, and depending on the religion you may not be able to pick the order of the ceremony.  If not what elements are you wanting to incorporate?  In general weddings go something like this

Seating of parents

Groom enters

Wedding party enters

Bride enters

Officiant welcomes guests to the wedding of…..

Statement of intent by bride and groom( if it’s part of your ceremony)

Any readings or special prayers

Exchange of vows and rings

Unity candle, sand ceremony etc

Officiant introduces bride and groom as mr and mrs and say you may kiss the bride

Wedding party bride and groom exit.

But it really depends on you and your officiant.  I would start by talking to them to see if they have a standard program, and then adjust things from there.  It would suck tofigure out just how you want things and find out your officiant won’t do them in that order.  Hope that helps a little!

Since it sounds like you’re having a religious ceremony, definitely just ask your officiant. He or she will be able to give you the order of things.
