Hitesh, are you saying you don't know how to edit, and you want an editing package recommended to you? We could be here all day doing that, so maybe browse through old forum threads :)

That first clip in particular contains a few different elements. The water + bubbles at the beginning must be stock footage or a template coz i've seen that three times now from various wedding videographers. To get text to animate like that, After Effects can do that with one of its presets, but may be quite complicated for a beginner.

The titles of the bridal party can be done in most editing programs, as can slow-motion and music overlay etc.

The flower foreground is achieved with filming the flowers on a green/blue material and (chroma)keying the green/blue out, again, not something all beginners can really pick up in a day.
For easy-to-drag-and-drop 3D animated stuff (transition wipes, backgrounds, motion design elements), try looking up DigitalJuice on the web. (i.e. the Wedding Toolkit could be a good one for you)

Maybe if you give more explanation of your background of filming/editing, we can head u in the right direction with software + techniques?

cheers

Pinnacle Cheese

Pinnacle is loaded with cheese. And you have to pay extra for the mega cheese.

Digital Juice has some good animations - check out the wedding toolkits. While there are some cheesy animations, some are actually pretty nice.

If you are looking for overlays, you might consider the Actionbacks range of wedding backgrounds - http://www.actionbacks.com/categories-weddings.html
