I'm going thru the much expected withdrawal pains of missing a good midrange zoom after switching from the D300 to the D700. Now my daughter insists that I shoot her wedding in November. I've never shot a wedding before, except informally behind the official wedding photographers. I need help in selecting D700 lenses, etc. I have the following, but wouldn't mind buying more if there are good choices.

AF-S 24-120mm,f1:3.5-5.6 G VR
AF 50mm, f1:1.4 D
AF 28-80mm, f1:3.3-5.6 G
AF-S 17-35mm, f2.8 D ED-IF
AF-S 70-300mm, f4.5-5.6 G VR

I think the 24-120 is a good range, but I've heard it has bad optics and I wonder if it's fast enough. Is a monopod a good idea? What about flash ideas? Any comments or advice would be appreciated.
