Ya, I might bring along my tele coz I knew it can give very good portrait.The only thing is the changing of lens might missed the moment.

Normally, I don't really get bothered with additional photographers, be it Ixus I users, A70, 3100, Sony P1 users etc. I don't care if I block them or not, and many a times I admit I do end up blocking them. They'll just have to live with that. It's not on purpose, but it's their job.

The moment you point a camera at somebody, attention is seeked, so at all costs, avoid pointing when the photographer is framing a shot.
Seriously, you'd be better off just shooting for fun rather then worrying about the workflow for the wedding, even watching & learning is quite an experience already. Remember, you can only be a guest or helper or photographer, you can't be both, know what you want to be on that day. If you're a guest, shoot like one, occassionally, if you're a photographer, just shoot without getting in the way of the main photographer and don't grumble if he moves into your frame as you shoot, it happens pretty often...

Just shoot PJ, wide angle. No worries about blocking and stuff. Take it as wedding street photography, really simple.
If you want, include 10-20% telephoto for some similar to portraits kinda shot with good DOF control. Change it too often and you will definitely miss shots.
