Sending a fully edited copy to client

What do you include along with a full edit of one of your weddings when a client requests other than the DVD and contact info?

Also do you put a copyright warning at the start of the video as well?

Thanks,
Jeff

That leads me to another question

"Watermark it from start to finish."

What is the best way to watermark? I have always just created a title of my company name and reduced the opacity...is there a better way to do it?

I've seen people use a "clear" faint font positioned diagonally accross the whole video. I just put a small company logo (reduced to black and white and no opacity) in the lower right hand corner. Whip something up in photoshop and import it into your NLE's titler.
