What film to use for weddings?

Right away you can tell I'm not a full time wedding photographer. So far, I've done all weddings using negatives: Fuji Reala, Superia 100, 200, 400 and 800 NPZ. For the last three years I've been using mostly slides, both Fuji and Kodak. Now I've got three weddings coming up this summer (this gives me some time to experiment) and I'm debating on what film to use: negatives or slides? Here's a list of my potential choices: Fuji Reala, Superia 100, 400, 160S, 160C, 400H, 800Z, Astia, Provia and Kodak Portra 400NC, E100G, E100GX, E200 (pushed to ISO 640 if required). Any tips will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Kodak Portra is THE FILM for realistic skin tones. I'd use nothing else in daylight.
