It would help for sure, but how comfortable are you shooting with your existing equipment (18-135 and 50/f1.8)? The only caution I would make is to ensure that the Sigma lens works well with your camera (with no FF/BF issues etc.) since you may not have enough time to test it out. Since the wedding is mainly outdoor, you may have less worry about indoor lighting and flash (may be a good thing for you as you may not have enough confidence to do it properly). Although outdoor events are mostly good with sufficient light, but sometimes high contrast could be challenging as well, make sure you use the lens hood (even on the 50mm lens).

So it's all system go.... good luck!! AND enjoy the fun part (you are in for a ride with all the actions).
