    Your existing gear is already more than sufficient as a back-up photographer.

    Sticking with Nikon, if your budget allows and you really want it, either the Nikkor 17-35mm f/2.8 or the Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8 would be a fantastic addition.

    But as it is, your existing Nikkor AF50mm f/1.8 + SB800 + your all-in-one zoom would suffice.

    If you don't want to change lens, there's no choice but to have a 2nd body or else compromise your whole shoot with your all-in-one.

    I would not suggest doing that as you are just the backup photographer. During the day, under different situations/locations, you would know which of your existing lens to mount on your D50.

    Personally, I find that there's no point in purchasing the D70S or even the forthcoming D80 based on your current setup.

    I don't even consider myself an "average" yet but I still make do with a basic DSLR (the D70S was the most basic when I purchased mine) but saved the money for good glass. It's good glass over body for me; esp. with digital.

    I have so far managed one as a main + one as backup on a D70S + 18-70mm + 17-35mm + SB600. All the above are rather basic gear.

    The experience of shooting a wedding and the planning before the shoot is what you should be thinking about now.
