Camera Light Question

Hey guys,
Quick question for weddings. Im in the market to purchase a Frezzolini light but Im not sure which to buy. For those that use them do you recommend the 35,50,75 or 100 Watt?

get a dimmable-that way you have a choice. 100W is too much IMO for wedding receptions, 35 might not be enough or could be too much. Each situation is different. Years ago we used 100 to 200W sun guns, blinding, but we needed the juice. Now, I use a 25W dimmable with a 1/4 cto filter and it works just fine. It doesn't help at all outside, that's when I wish I was still using a 100W light.
Dimmable 50 should be just fine but either get a softbox or use some diffusion on it so it softens the light a bit or it's going to be way to harsh looking.
What do I know? I'm just a video-O-grafer.
