You also have the 16-85vr, 18-200vr, both from nikon.

If you want to consider 3rd party, you can try 17-50 f2.8 tamron.

For event such as wedding, with lots of movement, I will recommend 17-55 F2.8.
For Landscape, 16-85 VR a good and cheaper option.

There are many recommendations and it all boils down to your needs. As you can see, recommendations have been more or less flying in left right and center, and they will continue to, until you can list a specific set of needs that your upgrade lens must meet.

If not, you'll be upgrading for the sake of upgrading. You upgrade your lens to meet a need, not out of a whim or fancy (well, unless you have money to burn).
