My future hubby and I have decided to get married on the beautiful white sands of Ocean Isle Beach, NC. I envision a slightly cloudy, windless day with temps in the high 70s- however I am not naiive in knowing that probably won’t come completely true.
The wind, ahh, the wind. This presents a little bit of a sticky situation because I would really love for all 80 of my guests to be able to hear every word we say. The wind, however, has other ideas.
If you or anyone you know has had a wedding on the beach, please let me know how you were able to overcome this. I don’t want a huge sound system invading our intimate ceremony, but I do want people to be able to hear at least some of what we are saying. What should I do???

Our guitarist is being a portable amp with him that we can put a mike into. Our site is really rustic so no power = no big sound system.

I was actually thinking about this also. We will be getting married on a Ocean Terrace that’s at the hotel overlooking the beach (Gorgeous…LOL!) but I want to know how I will get my guests to hear our vows, etc. There will only be about 25-40 people so I’m wondering if it will be necessary at all. There will be a duo playing (violin & cello) so I know they will hear them just fine. I’m worried about our two little voices though. Comments anyone? Do officiants provide this?

Ohhh, a portable amp sounds like a good idea. I didn’t know they made those LOL. That sounds like it would work out well- I really don’t want to be stringing power cords 150 feet out from the restaurant!!!
