The unity candle is lit after the vows/exchange of rings.

 I’m doing the Blessed Mother Dedication after Communion – the choir is singing Ave Maria.

I’ve been to many Catholic weddings and this is what I’ve seen.

Rite of Marriage
Declaration of Vows
Blessing & Exchanging of Rings
Lighting of the Unity Candle

Then the gifts, communion, etc.

After this:
Blessed Mother Devotion
Nuptial Blessing
I now pronounce you…

If you are both Catholic then your priest may suggest you skip the unity candle.  Otherwise, Alaud41’s mass outline is spot on.  Take care!
