I'd start by searching the archives - there's one of these posts every week. Check out Tim's workflow and tips

You're shooting a wedding solo? Aside from the slow lenses, average focusing camera, etc., with which you may or may not be able to still get some good photos, you really shouldn't be agreeing to be solo shooter at a wedding with only 1 camera body.
