I don't think it would be smart to use only 1 lens to cover an AD wedding, especially of the couple are paying clients.
But if you insist on doing so, I'd go for versatility of a zoom lens, such as the various 18-200mm, Nikon's 18-300mm or Canon's 24-105mm / Nikon's 24-120mm.
it is just hypothetical. I guess nobody has tried that. Just exploring.
Understand some folks are doing available light. Wonder if zooms would be able to handle.
of course, on the other hand, state of the art bodies might be able to compensate with their high iso
just simply tell the wedding couple, I don't do this, I don't do that, I don't shoot this this this and this, I will only shoot what I think is suitable for me to shoot.
so no surprise for the wedding couple on their wedding day and you will not get sued after their wedding.

Stand like super far? Idk seriously. I've not done wedding photography and I guess that question is best posed to rhino123,which was what I did? That said I've not seen anyone using a 70-200 for such group shots.Originally Posted by catchlights
But then he can do it but standing so far, people will cut in and it's frustrating!
Oops... never tot of group photo Too long never do wedding, only think of shooting the couples.
I ever stand on the stage to shoot table group photos, not becos I'm using a 70-200 lens, it is becos the restaurant is so cramp, and total 70++ tables, there is no room between VIP tables and the stage, so I have to stand on stage to shoot table group photos. and some have to shoot across from the next table.
