If you are doing weddings, have a backup! Its Rule 1.
Don't go out and blow all your money on a new camera without having a backup, a new one has higher odds of dying soon than one that's been in use for a year or five,
I'd suggest getting a couple of refurb 60D's if that's what your budget allows. Don't forget, you will need extra batteries for any newer camera model, you will also need SD cards.
Maybe a couple of used 50D's in not a bad choice, then your batteries and CF cards will all work.
I had my daughter's xti as a backup to my 5D mkiii... let's just say there was a drop off in quality... so I upgrade her camera to a sl1... Not as good... but in good light... it will suffice if a circumstance requires.
