NY wedding and sightseeing lens dilemma

I'm heading to New York in about a week for my brother's wedding then a week of sightseeing in NYC and I'm having quite a dilemma picking the lenses to take. I'll be in the wedding, so I'll probably only have a chance to take photos at the reception, but I'd like to bring my fast primes. NYC some wides and zooms seem more appropriate.

What I have:
7.5mm FE*

The * 's are what I keep thing I'd like to take, but bring 7 lens, or 8 with the 40-150mm seems stupid. Would the 75mm probably be too long? In many ways I'd rather leave it at home since it's rather expensive and heavy. I don't shoot long very much, but would the 40-150mm be useful in NYC?

I'll be spending the week with my parents and my Dad has the E-M5 and G3 so we can share some lenses. He has the 12-50, 14-150 and 14mm.
