Beach Wedding Audio

Hey folks. I am attempting my first wedding shoot in a couple of weeks. It happens to be MY wedding. It will be on the beach in Cancun (windy). I have plenty of video/editing experince, but mainly music based stuff.

I plan on shooting a wide-angle tripod based HV10 from the back.

I will also have a manned HV-20 for close up / movement.

My biggest question is the audio. What would you recommend?

H2 or Iriver w/ Giant Squid on me?
Anything else?

Also, any other recommendations on equipment that I might not be thinking of?

Probably obvious, but you better have "furries" for your mics to cut the wind down. As for the shotgun, it probably won't be really useful unless you are close and it's not to windy. If you already have it, though, you might as well use it.

EDIT: get some circular polarizers for the cameras to help cut down the glare on the water/sand/faces
