Another thing, 100mm is a macro lens right? It will very slow focusing.
Instead of borrowing those lenses, might as well borrow a 70-200/2.8
It's a nice lab test. But in real life, you usually do not get so close and frame just the face (unless for passport photos), usually it will be half body or more.
So the examples here of the short focal lengths are when the lens are near to the face, resulting in perspective distortion. If the lens are placed further away, the distortion is much less.
Thanks everyone for the advice.
I have decided to buy a 50mm F1.8 for backup and managed to loan a 70-200mm F4 lens.
Shall be closing this thread soon after scouting the venue this weekend.

Why pixel-peep? Go out and shoot more!
If shooting f4 at 200mm, unless there's some spotlight on the subject, I hope you can get a shutter speed good enough to prevent hand shaking and movement blur.
if you are familiar with wedding custom and procedure, it is fine you to use many lenses to shoot beside main photographer/s.
else just keep it simple use a zoom lens to shoot whatever and whenever you can,
the last things main photographers want to see is some uncle Bob blocking their views, hinder their movement, into their frame or slow down the event.
try make yourself invisible if you can. everyone will appreciate that.
