    all you need is just to overlap one frame, so you miss two shots, no PS can save you.

    Yep, it's not about money, it's not about reputation, it's about other people's happiness

    Too risky, I'd rather waste the film by anyhow shooting than rewinding...

    Exactly!!

    I'm sure if it's your wedding, you won't want the photographer to do this.

    Yeah.. find some kids to pose for you, but remember what's going to come up next, remember to have enough time to rewind and load a new roll.. If nothing good to shoot. Then just don't shoot anything.. it's just a few inches of plastic.

It should not take more than 2 mins. If you think that something is going to happen, then don't change. That's why very important to use 2 bodies and stagger your shots so that if you reach end of the roll on one body you still have half a roll on the other body.
    But i don't have 2 SLR bodies hehe...i've heard that in some cases the photographer have an assistant so that the assistant can load a new roll of film for the main photographer while he continues shooting.

    Oh...well i guess i'll just try to see it as 28mm's not very wide enough for the table shots.

    If you don't have a 2nd body, then you really need to schedule your shots properly lor.. Bring along a PnS, it will come in useful if the situation arises. Better to have a lower quality shot than no shot at all.

    You'll be surprised. 28mm is quite ok but good to have a wider lens just in case there is really no space. Distorted picture better than no picture.
