I’ve never been to a wedding where the bride and groom are mic’d for sound amplification. im sure your celebrant/minister is used to projecting his/her voice. Specially with such a small gathering I can’t see why anyone would struggle.

I agree with pp.  why would you need microphones for the ceremony?  how far away is the side option?  as for the whole moving issue, it seems like that might have had to happen anyway with a professional since you are needing audio in two different locations.

I think given that it’s such an intimate wedding, the mics and speakers during the ceremony are unnecessary. I understand your hesitation about him lugging speakers through your cocktail hour, but maybe you can compromise? If he can set up quickly, it shouldn’t cause too much of a disruption if he enters the room near where he’ll be setting up.

I had a small outdoor wedding with just 30 people and we did not have mics.. we used a laptop with small plug in speakers (a friend sat in the back and just pushed play) for the music we walked down to.. but yeah.. no lapel mics or any of that.. I think youre going overboard and wont need any of this stuff…
