How did people shoot weddings with a D200 if the ISO is supposed to be so bad?

Buy used 50mm and 85mm 1.4Ds to slash your ISO. You can also pick up used flashes.

As well, work on your technique. The difference between shooting at F 1.4 and F 2.8 can mean you will slash the ISO and avoid noise. (Don't learn at the wedding, as the thing DOF can take some getting used to. Consider getting a split diopter fresnel to help you focus.

Here's a shot taken at a show years ago with a D80, which had the same sensor as the D200, with the 85mm 1.8D at 1/45th at 100 ISO. With good technique, you can hold a camera really still and get shots in very dark conditions at lower ISOs than you'd expect.

I like the colours. Your camera takes good pictures.

This is great! I could never do that well.
