Please keep in mind that it is really unfair to compare the P-880 imager to a DSLR camera using a rather standard APS-C imager. The P-880 is going to loose every time due to the fact that the APS-C imager is so much bigger.

Determine if ISO 400 is enough for you, determine if the image quality is OK for you at ISO 400 with the P-880. But sooner or later you will most probably want to go to a DSLR for shooting weddings. You might even look for a usedOlympus E-300 which can be had for around the same price as the P-880.

Personally I find the Canon XT to samll to handle under wedding shooting conditions. I got started over 50 years ago shooting weddings with a Rolei.
