Dust in my lens - Photography

Hi, While checking out my camera gear, I noticed a fairly good sized dust particle inside one of my lenses. The lens is a Canon 28-135 IS. If I take this to the Canon service center, will they be able to remove it? I know a small dust speck won't show up in most shots. However, I will be shooting an informal wedding for a friend in two weeks, and this one has me worried. It's just a bit off center of the glass. Thanks, Mike...

    Let sleeping dust lie. Take a couple test shots to be sure, but I would
    not worry about it at all. Point the camera at a bright white wall.
    Focus at minimum distance (regardless of where the wall is). Do you see
    the dust or any effect of it? Then try a dark wall.

    It is doubtful that you will ever see anything of that dust partial in
    any photo. It is more likely that the tech trying to clean it will make
    matter worse (not getting it reassembled as well as it first was) and you
    are more likely to be able to see the results of that than the dust.

    Back in the dark ages I did quite a few wedding photos and many of them
    were taken with lenses that not only had a speck or two of dust, but also
    chips out of the lens. My boss would never allow anything second rate to
    come out of the studio. If a little dust or a chip on the lens degraded
    the image, and I used it, I would never have done any other work for him.
