Hymenoplasty leaves no visible scars
It is important to communicate with your surgeon: exactly when is your wedding? Who will be looking, and exactly how & when. Different docs effecting a hymenal repair have different techniques. I'd advise seeing a surgaon who performs different procedures for different situations. A "repair" that wll be "tested" in 1 month may be performd differently than one where the wedding is in 3 months.
As for detection after having sex-- no, there is little liklihood that any previous hymenal repair will be able to be detected after sex- even by a doc doing a vaginal exam.
