There are a few different versions for the Order of Service for a Catholic wedding, depending on your circumstances and the type of ceremony you choose. You will find some information at the links below:

Order of the Rite for Celebrating Marriage Outside Mass

Order of the Rite for Celebrating Marriage During Mass

Order of the Rite for Celebrating Marriage Between a Catholic and an Unbaptised Person

When you are making preparations for your wedding it is wise to make contact with the parish and the priest who you hope will officiate at the wedding as soon as possible. It is best not to assume that both the church facilities and the priest will be definitely available on the date that suits you and your family. The priest will be able to provide you with further resources about preparing your marriage ceremony. He may wish to guide you in your choices for readings, vows and music.
