Generally this is what I’ve seen for a traditional Christian wedding. 

Processional
Giving Away of the Bride
Lords Prayer
Hymn
Words on marriage from the officiant
Another hymn or Vows
Exchanging of rings
Readings
Sign the marriage certificate/registry
Recessional

Obviously tweak whatever you want. I’ve also seen readings done before the vows. I hope that helps.

Don’t stress! If your officiant is organized, he will have a general outline with him to show you how weddings he performs USUALLY go. You’ll be free to tweak it, I’m sure.

When I contacted my officiant via e-mail, he sent me a survey to fill out with our general information, what general feel we want for the ceremony, any additional (read: non-traditional) things we want included, etc. Maybe making a simple list of a few of these things might be good for you to do.
