Problem with GAS

So, from a hobbyist photographer last year I have now started into weddings with a few done and 10 booked in over the next year or more.

I need a second body.

The D850 excites me, and I could buy it if I really wanted to however my head tells me the D750 will be a superb body for weddings for years to come. 2 identical cameras with same settings, I can get 3rd party grip under £50. Makes total sense.

Nice to have though it may be, I don't need D5 like focus ability brides don't tend to be moving too quickly when you shoot them! From what I can see there is no huge DR or low light advantage. Higher MP again would be nice but I don't intend to be cropping much and the reach from my 70-200 VRII give me all I need.

Of course with the D850 I'm future proofed for another few years I suppose, but there are still guys putting out stonkingly good images from D700s and D3s now getting quite outdated!

So do I go with head and D750 or heart and D850???
