I hate going to outdoor ceremonies where you can’t hear anything! I suggest using a small amp & a plug in mic. Something small, minimal effort, where if it is useless, you didnt put too much time or money into it. If someone you know plays guitar, they should have an amp, and maybe if you know a singer, they’ll have a mic you can borrow.

@bellinghausen:  There are mufflers for mics to prevent feedback from the mics.  otherwise none of your guests will hear anything.  What a rubbish planner!  Talk to your DJ to see what they suggest or if they can set up a small amp during the ceremony for a fee.

Our DJ provided a microphone and speakers.  It was windy and we had no feedback.  I would definitely recommend something though so people can hear you.

@bellinghausen:  Yup, our DJ took care of this as well for us. He even managed outdoor music in the rain! (We had a tent 😉

Our DJ took care of it for us as well. They had one mic on DH and one mic on our officiant friend. It worked out great!

That’s weird, your guests won’t be able to hear anything! My husband was mic’d by the videographer and his mic picked up both of us enough for everyone to hear. Had he not done this, our DJ would have included it in his services. Definitely talk to your DJ!
