LED ring vs Squared LED for wedding pics

I am stuck between ordering these two LED lights for indoor low lighting pictures. I have a fixed  50 mm 2.8/F lens but still dont think it's enough . I saw these two styles of lamps but was told by a local photography shop the circular lights are more for upclose portraits and recommended the squared LED. I'll be walking around taking pictures. 

                                                                                          Any suggestions?????

Using Canon 3ti

50mm and 15-55mm lens

 

thank youLED ring vs square ring

Get an external flash instead.

 

Your T3i can act as a master flash so you can even get the external flash off camera for even better results.

 

Canon recently updated their 430EX flash, so the 430EX II is selling at what I consider a good price.

Won't I need someone to carry that around?
Just to make sure you're talking about a flash that is not connected to the camera correct?

It can be used on camera or off camera.
