As on Yom Kippur, both the chatan and kallah fast (in this case, from dawn until after the completion of the marriage ceremony).
And at the ceremony, the chatan wears a kittel, the traditional white robe worn on Yom Kippur.
Their mutual commitment is based on who they are as people, not on any material possessions.
The kallah follows the chatan, and both are usually escorted to the chuppah by their respective sets of parents.
The ketubah outlines the chatan's various responsibilities ― to provide his wife with food, shelter and clothing, and to be attentive to her emotional needs.The first cup accompanies the betrothal blessings, recited by the rabbi.After these are recited, the couple drinks from the cup.The kallah will be seated on a "throne" to receive her guests, while the chatan is surrounded by guests who sing and toast him.At this time there is an Ashkenazi tradition for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom to stand together and break a plate.
