Have you checked your local library to see if they have newspapers on microfilm that date back to the civil war? If so, perhaps there are some wedding announcements listed there that would give you an idea of how wedding wording was presented?

Or, maybe ask the historical societies that do preservation on the local forts? The might know someone in the organization who might have books containing wedding invitations or announcements.
Good luck!

@CivilWarBride: oh yeah, I forgot about the Daughters of the Confederacy!!! Definitely contact them. I have some family in the Daughters of the Confederacy and they have crazy amounts of historical stuff. I had not even thought of that, I bet they will be able to help you 😉 Neat idea for a wedding, btw!
