A nice black photo vest is perfectly fine for wedding photography. It isn't just film you carry in the pockets. Lenses, filters, cleaning things, even a flash or two can be pocketed. Oh, and batteries.

They really are hard to beat and you only look dorky if you aren't carrying a camera.

One piece of advice which I will pass on. Make sure that any critical must have shot is done with two cameras. These days I shoot almost entirely hybrid so for me one of the shots is taken with the digital camera and the other with the film camera. But when I shoot only film, I make sure that the money shots are backed up on a second camera and roll of film.
