Some of these responses are hilarious. You need backups! You need second shooters! Are they just out of touch, or maybe they didn't read your post?

Here's some tips for you:
You won't need the tripod. You can't do long exposures with people in them... they move.
Practice shooting in the chapel before the wedding.
As for positioning, ask the B&G where you should shoot from. Do they want you up on the alter to get some shots, or just from the front row? Ask them.
Overweight people look best shot from up high. Bring a ladder, or find some way to shoot down on her.

This.

And make sure you can use flash in the church....some churcs will not allow you to use flash at all.....so then it will be up to the low light resolve of your camera.

Bring extra of everything you can.

I would SERIOUSLY look into renting an extra body and a single flash gun.

Well a tripod could be usefull if the 70-300mm lens is used, he didn't say anything about IS.

I would reccoment sticking with the kit lens alltogether and use it's IS, one won't get full use of the IS since one has to keep shutter speeds at 1/60 or above but it elimintates the potential camera shake.

Other then that shoot in RAW and get software that's good at masking noise because you'll be att ISO 1600 all day i suspect.
Download the latest DPP version if you haven't allready atleast, the one on the CD with the camera won't be very new.

Since you're in a church i suspect a few prayers is in order!

Good luck!

Tripods are a bit cumbersome especially running around a church. If you can use a monopod. That is much easier to carry around and you only have one leg to set on that rather than three.

My wedding photographer was not allowed to use a flash during the ceremony. But other churches (it's really up to the priest/pastor) let you shoot with flash but yes, you have to ask the person performing the ceremony.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!
