I went to an outdoor wedding just last year, and it was beautiful!  Their was some sort of microphone up front (either from the Venue or the DJ?  Not sure, the groom has friends in the DJ / music business so it could have come from there), and it was nice.  Actually, I went to another outdoor wedding where they used a microphone too…so maybe you can get one from the DJ?  If you’re not having a DJ, if you look around you can probably rent some sort of system for the day for that purpose (because you’ll want one for the ceremony, the toasts, etc.). 

On a side note, I’m also having an outdoor wedding and I hadn’t even thought of this!!  Thanks! Smile

I would be concerned about the weather for your wedding more than anything. Just noticed you have April as your date and you’re in Canada. IDK what the weather is like then but as an Ohioan, I wouldn’t consider an outdoor wedding in April because of rain.

@kayberry:  We are having an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception at the same venue and the DJ is setting up two sound systems (small additional charge).

I would ask your DJ what they are willing to do to accomodate both areas, they may just throw in some assistance for free.

We had an outdoor ceremony, indoor reception, but no dancing and no DJ. But the venue rented  speakers and mic for us.The officiant wore a lapel mic and just unclipped it and held it for us when we read our vows. It wasn’t too expensive. My BIL also had an outdoor destination wedding ceremony and they were able to rent a mic and speaker set up. 

Renting the equipment shouldn’t be a problem.
