I've been following the Universal Church standards, but will make as exception for my son's wedding.

No, they don't. The rules that bind are the 1983 Code of Canon Law, which requires fasting and abstinence on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, and abstinence on all other Fridays, unless changed by a particular country's bishops' conference. In England and Wales, the bishops recently made Friday abstinence mandatory again. In the US, you're allowed to do some other penance instead.

Keep the old rules all you want - they're good for you. But they're voluntary, and if you break something you voluntarily chose to do and aren't required to do, there's no sin. If you want to fully follow the old rules, don't have a wedding during Lent.
