You'll need another body, at least a 10D and a 100 2.0 (better than the 85 1.8 IMHO) and you'll be set. If you can upgrade to the 50 1.8 MKI you'll have very accurate AF. YN-468 flash is very good and very inexpensive. It's full featured. Also, look into a 550EX for a little more power and money :) The 18-55 IS is a good lens for group shots with good lighting. Keep it. You'll use it. You can trash that 75-300, or at least leave it home for weddings ;)

okay i know that there is always heated discussion on lenses for weddings,

i currently have

a Nifty 50mm 1.8
Kit Lens, 18-55mm IS non USM
and a 75-300mm

keeping in the spirit of inexpensive lenses (NOT CHEEP)

what would you recommend?

Insurance and a photobiz or zenfolio website, forget the rest. you won't need any more gear than what you have.

then after your first few weddings, considering you know how to use that stuff to begin with you should have more money to save on good gear.

The 75-300mm is by far the worst in the grouping, and the least useful to boot. In the spirit of being "inexpensive", it should be replaced with a 55-250mm IS. It won't break the bank, and it comes close to rounding out a cheap kit.

A good flash is a must...

Tamron 17-50 2.8 seems to be one of the more popular choices.
