you really do get hooked so easy on rented stuff, but you want the wedding shots to come out great, so may make a sacraafice, and its not like we all drool over them anyways right?

Make sure if you rent equipment, that you give yourself enough time to test the equipment out (to make sure it is working properly) and to take some practice shots to get a feel for how it works. So if it's a Saturday wedding have the lens arrive on say Tuesday...that gives you enough time to get it replaced should it be damaged in shipping (not likely, but possible) and practice with it.

Thanks for the reply
I was thinking that I should be practicing with new equipment......
But when I rent two lenses and lets say a D300S for a week, I'll be spending enough to buy myself an new D90...... They are asking very much money. Maybe I didn't look at the right place, but for now renting doesnt seem like an option.

you dont need it for a week, just do the 4 day rent period.

Two problems with that. Not enough time to test to make sure it's working properly/to get a feel for using a new piece of equipment. Second, it's nice to have a few extra days just in case some shots need to be redone a few days after the wedding.
