Before the betrothal, the officiating rabbi recites the following blessings over a cup of kosher wine:
"Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us concerning illicit marriages, forbidden to us the betrothed and permitted to us those who are married to us by the rite of chupah and kiddushin. Blessed are You Lord, who sanctifies His people Israel through chupah and kiddushin."
The bride and groom then drink from the cup.
As the groom places the wedding ring on the bride's finger, in the presence of two valid witnesses, he recites the following:
"With this ring, you are consecrated to me according to the law of Moses and Israel."
The Kethubah wedding-contract is then read, after which the following seven blessings are read (by any Jewish man) over a cup of wine.
"1. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.
2. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who has created all things for His glory.
3. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, Creator of man.
4. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who created man in His image, in the image [of His] likeness [He fashioned] his form, and prepared for him from his own self an everlasting edifice. Blessed are You L-rd, Creator of man.
5. May the barren one [Jerusalem] rejoice and be happy at the ingathering of her children to her midst in joy. Blessed are You L-rd, who gladdens Zion with her children.
6. Grant abundant joy to these loving friends, as You bestowed gladness upon Your created being in the Garden of Eden of old. Blessed are You L-rd, who gladdens the groom and bride.
7. Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, who created joy and happiness, groom and bride, gladness, jubilation, cheer and delight, love, friendship, harmony and fellowship. L-rd our G-d, let there speedily be heard in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem the sound of joy and the sound of happiness, the sound of a groom and the sound of a bride, the sound of exultation of grooms from under their chupah, and youths from their joyous banquets. Blessed are You L-rd, who gladdens the groom with the bride."
the couple drinks from the wine, a glass is broken, with wishes of "Mazel Tov!" and they are accompanied to a private room for a few minutes alone together.
