The Catholic board on The Knot might be able to give you some insight into the “why” behind why you can or cannot do it. FWIW, as a guest, I’d be pretty bored during it and wondering why it was included.

The Litany of the Saints is definitely permissible at weddings, we are doing it and I’ve been to a number of them in the past where it’s been done. I’m guessing you are talking about the John Becker setting? (There are others out there, but the Becker one is the one that always gives me goosebumps).

Our priest recommended that we do it right before/after the Prayers of the Faithful (supplementing it but not replacing it). I know both my sister and my cousin did it at their weddings. I can ask my sister when theirs was; for my cousin, I have her program here somewhere and I can look it up. She did the old Latin setting, which, I do have to admit, was a bit boring, but I think a more contemporary setting (I know Matt Maher also has one, although I’m still partial to Becker) is absolutely stunning.

If you want to PM me, once I talk to my sister and look up those programs, I’d be happy to help you craft a sound argument for that letter for your priest!
