i understand if we get married, we will be issued a marriage contract or is it a marriage certificate from our civil registrar office then there is another NSO marriage contract or certificate.

is the marriage contract or certificate which we will get days after our civil wedding good enough for filing my spouse visa petition or do i have to wait for the NSO marriage certificate or contract which takes a a while to be released.

They're not the same. They'll want a marriage certificate. I don't know where it is you are getting married but in the UK if you have a civil wedding you will be issued a marriage certificate. You can also pop by your local Registry office and get a copy anytime you want (for a fee).

Get the copy issued by the NSO since that is what the embassy will look for. The ones you received from the civil registrar will still need to be filed by the registrar at the NSO office and this usually takes 4-6 months. For your initial filing you can use a copy of the ones given to you after your wedding but make sure your spouse gets the certified NSO document to bring with her. If I recall correctly the document you will be given is a marriage contract since AFAIK the Philippines doesn't issue marriage certificates.
