For starters, Aufruf and Bavarfen were two separate and different ceremonies. The Aufruf was called Shpinholtz .
The Shabbos before the wedding: On Friday night they celebrated with the Chosson similar to a Sholom Zochor. In the morning a special Piyut was said in Shul. There was a special Nusach of Reshus to call up the Chosson to the Torah (like we do on Simchas Torah).
After his Aliyah they sang the Piyut Echod Yochid from R. Avigdor Kara.
The Shabbos Haftorah (Rema O.Ch. 428:8) was replaced with a special one for the occasion (Sos Osis – Yeshayahu 61)
No candies etc. were thrown at the Choson.
The Bavarfen took place on the day of the wedding. Early morning when it was still dark, the Chosson and Kallah were brought to the Shul Hof (Shul court yard) accompanied with torches. The Chosson was brought to the Kallah by the Rov. Chosson & Kallah held hands and wheat kernels were thrown at them. The words Pru Urvu was said three times. The Kallah was taken back home and the Chosson went inside the Shul to Daven Shacharis.
