Wedding Camera Advice

I'm shooting a friends wedding in March and will need two bodies for it mainly as its my first "official" one and don't want to have to be changing lenses allt he time. I have a 5D Mk2 so i'm going to rent another camera. Should i just go for another 5D Mk2 or go for a 1Ds Mk3 (about £15 difference)?

I definitely want another full frame and i think the extra focusing points and low light ability would be advantageous for the evening.

I'd use the 70-200L 2.8 MK2 and I have a 17-40L, 24-105L, sigma 50mm 1.4 but was thinking of also hiring the canon 24-70 2.8L and just sticking to those 2 lenses for the majority of the day.

Waht are your thoughts / experiences with this sort of setup for a big day, thanks.
