Sorry stephraim, I wish I had the texts of the rites in English to share but I don't. For the moment I think your best bet would be to contact your local diocesan offices or even the USCCB's Secretariat for Hispanic Affairs. Maybe they could offer guidance. The bishops have marriage website in Spanish called Portumatrimonio.org., if that's helpful, but I don't see English versions of the rites on their marriage ceremony page. Maybe you could contact them directly for advice.

Admittedly Western marriage rituals are not my specialty, but I believe the arras and lazo are local customs that have never been part of the Ritual.
I don't have the time to do much research, but a quick search brought up the following information that might be helpful.
It may be that some of these practices are not just local customs but part of the ritual in Hispanic countries for a very long time with their origins in the Mozarabic Rite. A website (in Spanish) on the Mozarabic Rite in Spain today says that the arras ritual, or exchange of coins, was part of the marriage ritual in the Mozarabic Rite.
It says that part of these customs and prayers of Mozarabic origin have been included in the "Formulario Tercero del Ritual del Matrimonio" or the "Third Formulary for the Ritual of Matrimony" which is used in Spain today. It says that prayers and practices that had survived in many dioceses in Spain through the centuries and were forgotten in the editions of the Ritual following Vatican II have been rescued, that is restored, since 1996.
The article also mentions that even after the suppresion of the Rite in the 11th century a part of the Mozarabic marriage ritual and prayers passed into a book called the Manual Toledano and thanks to this these rituals and prayers continued to be used in many Spanish dioceses, including ones in the New World.
This post on another forum has something very relevant to say so I'll translate it directly:
The nuptial mass is one thing and the rite of marriage is another which in itself does not need the mass.
The rite of marriage is not nor has it been in the Missal but it is in the Ritual and this is important for the following: just like there was only one Missal for the entire Latin Church of the Roman Rite, this was not (the case) for the Rituals. The Rituals displayed peculiarities depending on the country and even according to the diocese.
In the case of a good part of Spain and other Hispanic countries, the "Manual Toledano" was followed. In that manual there were remnants of the Hispanic-Mozarabic liturgy which in the case of matrimony were even more than remnants. For example the "velacion" (imposition of the veil over the sholders of the groom and the head of the bride), the precious (lovely) blessing of the bride, the "arras", the "despedida" (farewell), ("A companion I give you, and not a servant: love her as Christ loved his Church") and diverse prayers from that manual were from the Hispanic-Mozarabic liturgy and not the Roman one.
Another peculiarity of the Manual Toledano is that it was bilingual since ancient times.
The velacion could be the "veiling" that stephraim wrote in the OP.
I wrote all of this to show that at least some of these practices aren't just local customs but actual parts of the marriage ritual that were used historically in Hispanic countries and that at least some of them were originally part of the Mozarabic Rite.
Whether there are "approved" texts or not I don't know, but perhaps a call to the chancery of the nearest diocese in Mexico would help to answer that question. If there are, I'm sure they can provide the Spanish text, which can be translated as needed.
The translation I posted above was on a thread dealing with the Extroardinary Form but it sounds like much of this has been restored to the offical Rite of Marriage in the Ordinary Form in Spain. Perhaps this has happened in parts of Latin America as well so I wouldn't be surprised if at least some of these rituals are part of the official Rite of Marriage books in Spanish used in the U.S.
