I’ve been to/in a couple of weddings where you couldn’t really hear the vows… I don’t think it took away too much, because you can still see the way the couple is looking at each other and the officiant directs things so guests know what’s going on. Don’t spend the extra money if you can’t afford it.

I don’t have any suggestions. I’m commenting so I can follow this thred because I’m worrying about the same thing. Our ceremony will be outside and I worry that our voices won’t carry, especially if either of us get emotional.

$500 for the speaker! That seems outrageous! 

I just looked on amazon and they had battery powered speaker systems that included a wireless mic for definetly under that ($250 and under) a few used ones for under $100! Then just get a mic stand and you would be good to go

If you are that worried, order the one from online and then resell to another bride that is worried about the same thing! 

sidenote- i dont know much about the quality of the ones from amazon, so it might take some research but at least you have an option

Just speak up!

I made sure I spoke really loudly and everyone said they were able to hear me. I’m usually a quieter person too.

When I was at the altar I had this fear that the videographer that I paid $$$ for wouldn’t be able to hear them and I’d be upset forever. haha I guess that’s what brides think about.

A PP mentioned systems on Amazon and I decided to take a look.  I’m not sure what the quality on some of these wireless systems are, but some are as little as $50-20.  I’m thinking of going that route and having the option of reselling afterwards.  I am dealing with the same issue.  hadn’t thought of it until our officiant requested one.  I do think it would be nice for people to be able to hear what is going on though.

do not pay $500 for the battery speaker system, that is only slightly rediculious. 

I have not used it for a wedding (yet) but my friends and I own a number of battery powered amps that we take with us when we play at farmers markets, community bon fires and the like. There are a number of different options, I have a ‘roland micro cupe combo amp” which works great for someone singing and playing guitar at the same time. I can’t immagine it woudln’t work for voice and I picked mine up for130$ ish a few months ago. 

Is you are really super on a budget you could always go with something like this http://www.amazon.com/Danelectro-N10A-Honey-Tone-Mini/dp/B000B6DHAS/ref=pd_cp_MI_1

they are suuuuuuuper small (like you can fit them on your belt size) I have heard them used for electric guitars that was to jam with our acoustic people and they didn’t sound that bad. I would suggest getting rechargeable batteries for it though. People woudln’t be able to hear you accross a foot ball field or anything, but they would be albe to hear you a lot better from 50 feet or so im pretty sure.
