Since it's interior with little space to maneuver around, I suggest you go for a wide-angle lens. You can't go wrong with the Tokina 11-16 f/2.8 on the DX, unless you find that too wide for your liking...

Nikkor AF-S 17-55mm F2.8 is a very good one..
Go find out what your current setup can't satisfy u and upgrade from there.
Else go for nikkor 17-55 and never look back.

How about the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 with in-built motor?
you'll find that the kit lens is capable of doing the job too, as long as you have a speedlight to provide light.

if you're just shooting at the wedding as a guest, and not as the PAID photographer, don't bother buying a lens just for that one wedding. if you really want to, just rent one.

anyway, the tamron 17-50 f2.8 is fine for weddings. any lens with focal range with a minimum of 18 and above will work. frankly for the group shots, you'll not be using f2.8 much, so there's the kit lens will work fine. the FLASH is what is really important. make sure you know how to use your flash, don't just point it at the subject and blast away.

Agreed :thumbsup:

what you need is a good diffuser ;)

imho, the VR kit-lens is pretty good already :think:
