50L and 135L for me. Hands down. I wouldn't feel even remotely limited with that combo, to be honest...

I too would go with the 50L and 24-70. At weddings guests would expect you to be moving around them anyway and if you blend in well with the gathered masses, you can get some excellent results with these two lenses. I may actually consider taking the 16-35 as an alternative to the 24-70.

I used a 16-35 2.8L & a 70-200 2.8L exclusively and have never needed anything else... Here's what I get: http://johnohara.zenfo​lio.com/weddings (external link)

Ditto. Then again that's all I'm working with so it makes sense I chose them :).

I like staying as much out of the way as possible in weddings though. Unfortunately that lets the gwc or mwc get in my line of sight.

35 and 135 or 35 and 85. To tell the truth, I'd be happy with just the 35 (or a 50) if I had to use just one lens for a full wedding.

These questions are silly because i would never go onto business and shoot weddings with just 2 lens

BUT

24-105 and 70-200 for sure

Primes

35L,50L,85L,135L----cant live w/o them

and pretty much have to have a wide angle

For me it really depends on the available light in the reception hall:

Good lighting/Low ceiling: 24-70, 70-200 II
Dim lighting/ High ceiling: 50 1.4, 70-200 II

Carry 6 or 7 lenses to the wedding, but really only use the 35L and 135L.
