Instax is fun with the guests. Get one of them and have fun.

One thing about 35mm SLR is that you will have to get through 36 shots before changing film. Which can be good or bad thing.

Where is the wedding held? Indoors or outdoors? What film speeds are you going to be using?

The wedding will be outdoors on a beach. I think the reception will also be outdoors (covered). I will be with the wedding party for 3 days, capturing all of the action. So I'll go with a range of speeds, from 100 on up to 3200. The Pentax and Contax 645s sound nice, but I really have my eyes set on the Mamiya. A Canon EOS 3 makes sense too for simplicity. As does an OM-4 which I can use with my existing lenses. Hmmm..
