Agree w ortega n zaxh81... :)

But then still depends on where u r shootin. If itz a small 3-room flat, u might wanna consider e 12-24... ;)

Just bring everything along for your wedding shoot. After all, it's just 3 lenses (actually 2 lenses, since 1 is already attached to your camera body), a speedlight and a tripod. How inconvenient can that be?

If you're the only one covering the wedding, besides the above advise on lens, flash, etc, I would STRONGLY suggest bringing along a backup body. That's for equipment.

There're, of course, more important things to note.

12-24 is a good choice for weddings.

Again, it depends on how you want your shots to turn out.

Some photographers prefer using the Standard zoom range(after 1.5x), while some prefer the ultra wide range such as the 12-24(after 1.5x)

For me, I would bring both.Besides, you already have the Tokina 12-24, unless you are fussy about the focussing speed/noise.

Just curious, you first wedding shoot, is it a paid one?

Ha... friends' wedding shoots are always excuses for me to get new stuffs... congrats to your friend and good luck to your shootings...

Personally I find it rather difficult to shoot with 50mm... i got lazy legs... and not wide enough...
Short focal length lens are not heavy to carry around so bring your whole arsenal along....

As most ppl had said.. yr camera body and kit lens is sufficient.
as for the other 2 lenses, 12-24 and 50 F1.8, you will use only if you have time to change lens and shoot the "effect" for this 2 lens eg. "ultra wide angle" and Veri fine bokeh(low light)...
