Opinions on what to bring to a wedding.....

My wife's nephew is getting married next weekend and I'm sure she will want me to take pictures.  I have not used an SLR camera at a wedding since I had a Pentax A3000 (about 30 years ago).

This is what I currently own:

  • A77
  • Sony DT16-50
  • Sony DT18-135
  • Sony DT50 1.8
  • Tamron 28-75 f2.8
  • Tamron 18-270 PZD (no)
  • Sigma 50-150 f2.8
  • Sony 43 flash (yes)

It's both a church ceremony, and reception at the Park Plaza in Boston.  I don't really want to lug a lot with me.  I'm thinking of maybe the 16-50, 28-75 (I like the colors) & 50-150 (my three favorite lenses) in my medium M-Rock bag.  I've also considered just the DT18-135, another favorite.  I would prefer just the 18-135, but I know my wife really likes the pictures that the Sigma 50-150 produces. I'm also about to order a Sigma 1.4 teleconverter (they're on sale) which would give me a 70-210 f4.0.  Since we're driving, I can easily bring everything in my small M-Rock backpack and keep everything in the car, and bring my other two M-Rock bags to use as needed.  I hate being too much of an obvious photographer as people assume I'm one of the hired wedding photographers.
