Planning the wedding
Most weddings in the UK take the form of either a civil ceremony or a traditional white wedding, held in a church. Then the couple has to draw up a guest list, send out invitations, book a reception venue, choose bridesmaids (the girls who traditionally accompany the bride in the church) and the best man (the bridegroom's friend who accompanies him to the ceremony), buy the wedding dress, arrange a honeymoon, and of course, to select the wedding ring(s).
The big day
The groom and best man arrive at the church first, and then the guests arrive. Last to arrive is the bride, normally dressed in a long white wedding dress, her face covered in a veil, carrying a bouquet of flowers, and accompanied by a couple of bridesmaids in matching dresses.
Usually the bride's father walks her down the aisle. At the end of the service, the couple exchange rings. When they come out of the church, the guests often throw confetti(small pieces of coloured paper), and the photographer takes various formal photographs.
Next in the big day is the reception, which is often a formal lunch in a hotel. At the end of the day, the happy couple traditionally leave on honeymoon.
