It will depend on if it is a religious wedding, and if so which religion, as they do vary in structure. But for the most part, the general guidelines are

1) The prelude as guests enter and are seated, as ceremony participants are walking around, or as a postlude as people are leaving the ceremony site,

2) as an active part of the worship service, ie. communion, or

3) to fill silences like meditations or candlelightings.

What exact music you chose can vary with each individual church, so be sure to check with your officiant about any rules you need to follow at your particular location.
