Hi there,
all i can tell you (i am not a pro at all ) is that keep your gear as simple 
as possible so you can concentrate on picture instead of concentrate on your 

If i was you, I just use what ever I get with one backup body and one main 
body.    look like you have only one leica body with 2 lens.  use that two 
lens. it will cover all you ever one.  for portrait of couple to few peerson 
in frame, 90mm will take care of it.  for group and candid, 35mm will take 
care of it.  make sure you bring with you a flash and couple roll of fast 
speed film for indoor shot.

I did 2 wedding with my friends.  2 camera bodies 4 lens total with 4 
flashes head.  1 nikon FM2n with 24mm + 105mm lens. 1 leica M6ttl with 35mm 
lens + 135mm elmarit lens.  1 flash for each camera and with 1 flash setup 
on tripod for off camera flash bouce addon.  this is the best part,  I wind 
up to use only leica m6ttl with 35mm lens and 2 flash after i did all of the 
4 persons portrait pictures.  so bring a lot of equipment does not help but 
what help is a equiptment you know it well.
