Have you already contacted the parish you are planning on getting married in?  Have you talked to them about completing the paperwork and Pre-Cana process?  Typically, the church you are getting married in will advise you on how to complete/coordinate all the steps so everything is in order by your wedding date.  I think the first step would be to contact the church you are getting married in, explain the situation, and ask them how you should proceed.  Technically, you do need a letter of permission from your home parish, but if you don’t have a home parish, the church you’re getting married in will advise you on how to proceed.  Good luck!

Ditto most of what @Mrs. Spring said.  Additionally, since you’ve been regularly attending mass at a parish, they probably have a record of you giving your tithe & thus have it on record that you’ve been attending.  This record may be enough for the parish you’re getting married in.  But like @Mrs. Spring said, check with the parish you’re getting married in…Good Luck!

You could probably easily join the parrish you’ve been attending. Just let them now that you’ve been attending regularly since you moved to the area, but just hadn’t taken the time to join and now due to your impending wedding you would lijke to join and correct you oversight of forgetting to join. Be humble.

Yeah, just explain to the parish people your situation and that you’ve been attending regularly and would like to join.  They’ll be helpful 🙂
