Thanks everyone for the great input. With my limited budget, I've decided to go with this setup:

Tamron 17-50 2.8 w/ CPL (owned)
DA 15 f4 limited (rented for $70 for two weeks)
F50 1.7 ($200)

Tammy 17-50 f2.8 for general purpose
It should serve in most situations

Renting a 15mm f4 for landscape. Think I should replace this with a fisheye?
Most people don't dig the fisheye look, I'd think about that a long time. If you like 15, fine, otherwise something like 21 might be better. Especially since you have 17 with your Tammy.

Need suggestions on a fast prime (30-50mm) for night/creative shots. I have a Sigma 50 f2.8 and a M-50 f.17 but I was thinking something like a f1.4
You absolutely need a fast 50, FA50 f1,4 or a used F50 f1,7 are your best bets.

Honestly I'm worried if the 17-50 will be able to do most of the heavy lifting.
You should manage well.

I own the DA 15, and I believe that it doesn't have that "Fisheye" look. Also the DA 15 is very easy to correct at PP. It is a very fun lens but be warned it is kinda hard to use because of its "perspective". Anyway if you're still interested in fisheye for weddings here's a good video
BTW that is how I shoot my DA15 and my late 10 - 20 for family events. But here's my question to you, do you really think you'll have time to interchange lenses while at a wedding?

Probably not but I'll see how it plays out. My intention isn't to fully capture the entire wedding per se, but to capture the entire trip and experience in Jamaica with my friends.

So with that said, I think the 15 will fit great for getting in everyone into the frame.

Thanks to LBA, I just got a DA35 2.4 as well. Just wanted to try it out for fun.
