What are the rules for Lenten weddings?

I am getting married next March 21st, 2009 which happens to fall during the Lenten season next year. I have heard various rumors and I wanted to get things straightened out. Am I going to be allowed to have flowers? Will the Alleluia be sung? Do I still get to pick my own readings? Any help would be much appreciated!
