Update regarding the importance of wearing Mangala Sutra:

The fifth step in a Vedic marriage is Maangalaya Dhaaranam.

There is no Veda Mantram for tying the mangala sutram (auspicious thread) around the neck of the bride by the groom. The latter takes the mangala sutram in his hands and recites the following verse: mângalyaṁ tantunânena mama jîvanahetunâ | kaṇṭheḥ badhnami subhage! sañjîva śaradaḥ śatam || This is a sacred thread. This is essential for my long life. I tie this around your neck, O maiden having many auspicious attributes! May you live happily for a hundred years (with me).
