If you have the FX lenses, and need a top camera for weddings, and with the prices of new D700 are dropping, I would recommend getting the D700 now. It is perfect for weddings, and you only need a couple lenses, a 24-70 and 70-200 would probably fill all the needs.
The D7000 has some traits that make it a very compelling camera, such as low ISO noise in another league, color and smooth color gradient that required a D3x before to achieve, but from all accounts it requires exacting technique, something a wedding photographer has few opportunities for except for formals. A D3s would be even more forgiving.
Obviously something is happening in the marketing channel, here in Russia prices are high for all Nikon gear, the D90 kit has been $2000 since it was introduced. But the D90, D300s, D700 and D3s are all in good supply on shelves and have sale prices. A D90 kit is now $1300 and a D300s kit is $1600. That suggests that the large retailers have knowledge of introductions that we don't. The D700 replacement might be just around the corner. Here, the D7000 body only sells for the same price as a D300s kit. D3s' are hard to find in the US but suddenly they are on the shelf of every store here. One chain with 14 stores within 15 minutes of my home each have 1-2 in stock. Something is happening in Nikonland.
But IF you need a FX camera for your work, get the D700 now. Even if a gee whiz D800 comes out in a few months, the price of a used D700 is not going to drop much. There is nothing in a D800 that will earn one penny more for you than your D90s or D700.
