    Be glad time is on your side and you have several months to learn and prepare! My first wedding was done with about 4 days notice! :p That said, you can learn a lot just by googling something like "beginning wedding photography". That's what I did, and I learned quite a bit. I don't personally have any specific advice for you, as I've only shot two weddings myself.

    Yeah, white is hard! If you are shooting in such low light, try to get either a decent diffused flash (or even better, 2 or 3 diffused flashes with remote triggers!) or a nice fast lens!

    As far as 2-3 hours, if you just mean for all the formal group shots, etc, then I'd say yes, that should be plenty.

    *seconds what Alpha said* That is a good point. Weddings are (hopefully) a one time thing, so you want to do them justice.

    Last time when I was at a book store, I saw a few of books that talk about wedding photography. So you may want to check them out.

    Don't forget there is a "Hot tips for WEDDING photography" in this forum.

    see if you can hang out with a local wedding photog-even if its running and getting coffee, batteries and holding lights-it will all be of use, seeing how they operate.

    Goodluck!

    dont gforget to swap out your cards before they are full so you can get a selection of photo on each card, so if one fails you still have all parts of the day on another card

    Don't forget the extra battery... or two! If you can find a helper, that would be to your advantage.
