In such a situation the only lenses I would take would be a 24-70mm f2.8 lens (first choice) followed by the 24-120mm f4 as a distant second choice. A prime lens is next to worthless at a wedding unless you don't mind getting in the way of everyone to satisfy your desire to take pictures.

Strange advice regarding primes. As is the case when shooting with a prime in almost any non-studio-like setting, you get the shots you can get. Any reasonable person understands this and won't try jumping in front of everyone just because their framing is a little less than perfect. The 105VR shot I posted above clearly has someone's head in the corner of the shot. I wouldn't call the shot worthless because of that though.
