U most welcome!
The following is an excerpt from an article, that I have posted couple years ago. So, it basically explains the steps of marriage in Islam, hope it helps.
Rukhsati: Literally it means "sending off". This term is used in Indio-Pakistan area. In Shari`ah, it is called "zifaf". In Arab countries, it is commonly called "dukhul" or "dukhlah". It means the consummation of marriage. Now, the spouses can be alone and can have their intimate conjugal relations. Rukhsati takes place after the nikah. After rukhsati, the spouses begin living together as husband and wife. In most cases the rukhsati takes place within a few hours after nikah, but sometimes families postpone the consummation of marriage or rukhsati for a later time. They may do it for various social or personal reasons. Sometimes, the consummation is delayed because the family wants to have a big party to invite many relatives and friends to celebrate their marriage. Sometimes, the couple decide to delay consummation because one or both spouses want to finish their studies or would like to make better arrangement for their residence, et cetera. There could be many reasons for the postponement of consummation and it could be for few months or years. This is permissible in Islam.
