1) They are planning to fix the date of the marriage on the 1st. **It depends what you mean. Is the date of the marriage going to be the 1st? Or, on the 1st, are they going to decide on the date of the marriage?

2) My sister's marriage (wedding is a little better) has been fixed for the 1st.

3) We all friends have met up. (Is this correct? I want to say this in present tense)
"To meet up" isn't usually used in the present tense. We're going to meet up on Friday. We met up last week.
But if you're already together, then you would end up with something like "We are a group and friends and we're all here together."

See above.
