1. I presume you are talking full frame bodies.
2. Why prime? Does anyone shooting wedding still use prime?
3. If forced, 35mm and 105mm.

I'd only use a prime for some controlled, posed shots. A good 24-70 f/2.8 got most of the work in the only weddings I've done since going digital....
I agree with the 35 and 105 if no other way....

Why so serious?

35mm and 85mm.  85mm would be my first pick.  Such an incredible lens, very versatile.

I wouldn't use primes. But given the question, 35 and 135.

Using prime lenses at a wedding seems like more of a pain than it's worth. but yes, basically you'll be in great shape if you've got something that can go wide and what can capture close details/intimate portraits

24-70 and 70-200 will properly do the job. You can work with primes but this pair makes it easier.

That's almost like one lens....the 70-200 covers 85mm.

Well, not when an 85 is/can be a bit faster.

Not that I think that's useful in an event situation. I'm just sayin'...

85mm is a must have IMO for weddings and portrait sessions.  It's sharp, fast and amazing lens.   70-200mm will give you the focal range for everything else.

No wides with your wedding pics then?
I presume it also depends on style.
Mine is a more journalistic style.

Yeah, I'd have a 24-70 on one body at all times.
