Depends on your shooting style :) Personally if there is enough space for the group shots I'd stick with the tamron for the entire event. Assuming the celing is low enough the 580ex can be bounced off it too. Always manual mode for flash photography for me :)

I assume this is a favour for a family member/friend? Visit the house beforehand if you can and see which lens is more suitable. Think about where you want to shoot the group shots as raptor84 has mentioned and plan accordingly. Based on past experience, a 20~24mm range on a 1.5x FOVCF is just about right.

So... probably the 17-40 is the better choice since you have a flash. Unless you're thinking of shooting available light. Then f/4 is definitely going to be a challenge...

Maybe I'm missing something. But the Tamron that the TS mentioned goes even wider than f/4. Although it's a variable aperture, I think by itself the fact that f/2.8 is available for use at the wider-end of the focal range makes it the better choice.

But like I mentioned in the post above, there are other considerations. Such as whether it is wide enough, etc.
