Which modifiers do you recommend for me?

I'm about to receive two Alienbee B800s, and I'm looking for recommendations for what kinds of diffusers/modifiers I might need for them. I plan to do individual portraits (head and shoulders as well as full-body) and small group portraits. Also, I plan to take them to weddings for formal group shots at the altar. The B800s will almost always be used as key and fill lights. My budget for modifiers is about $150-$200.

I also plan to use two 550EXs when needed as background lights and hair lights.

I've been leaning toward (2) 60" Photek Umbrella - Softlighter IIs ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/75852-REG/Photek_SL_6000_Umbrella_Softlighter_II.html ).

Anyway, what do you recommend? I figured the Softlighters might be the most versatile, and I thought 60" might be about the right size. Any thoughts?
