... I would add the 16-80 f/2.8-4 VR to your list to consider. It is much sharper than the 17-55 and very good in it's range. It is a fairly fast lens with excellent VR. I find it to be the sharpest Nikon DX zoom yet. It isn't cheap, some say overpriced but I don't agree. It is light and won't weigh you down. Good luck with your choice and your impending wedding.

I like my 16-80 a lot as a walk-around lens. In  addition, it is not a lot more money than the otber two.
