You don't have to close the cards with a consolidation loan (unless you are using a debt management service), and you don't want to close them since that will hurt your credit.  You'll have to look at the interest rates you are paying right now.  If you can get a better rate with a consolidation loan, then do it.  If not, then pay down the cards as much as possible before putting the wedding charges on it.
