I once attended a wedding aboard a boat that was docked in the downtown area of a city, and I could hear almost nothing.  As a guest, I was very disappointed, and I really felt sorry for the couple.

The only ideas I have include arranging your seating so that it is set up in a circle (with aisles allowing for the entry and exit of the bridal party), though I’m not sure that would help all that  much, and providing a printed program of everything your officiant, any readers, and you and your FI plan to say throughout the ceremony.

I hope things work out well for you!

I’m pretty sure there are battery powered mics out there, for you to get/use. They might not be of terrific quality, but they’d be better than nothing.

You could find the right DJ/speaker person with a generator to get sound. It probably is not that unusual of a request. My cousin did that for his wedding, as they had it at the family farm.

I higly suggest looking into this. I went to a wedding had the sound system blow out inside the church and the pastor went into a 15 minute homily. I couldn’t hear a word of it. Most painful wedding I have ever been at. Half the guests were whispering by the end of it becuase we really couldn’t hear anything.
