Hi all! 🙂
We are getting married outdoors and to be budget-friendly, I’m thinking about replacing the DJ with an ipod. Our venue does not provide a sound system so we’d have to rent it. We don’t need a crazy amount of sound amplification but something sufficient to reach the 80-100 guests during the ceremony, and something loud enough to get our dance floor moving.
We basically need speakers and a cordless microphone for the ceremony and toasts. Does anyone have advice about what we need to rent for a celebration of this size and how easy it is to set-up etc? Any good back-up plans in case things don’t work?

Also I should mention that we will have an acoustic guitarist playing our ceremony music, so we would also need to get him hooked up to the sound system.

I’m interested to know if anyone has answers for you. I haven’t figured it out yet, but we will be looking for a similar set up. My plan was to call a few rental companies to see what they had to offer (and probably ask a ton of questions).

I’d love to know this too!

You’d definitely need to have someone who knows a little about sound to be involved.
I contacted a bunch of DJs to find out about sound for our ceremony. We ended up just hiring someone to set up the sounds and mics for us. I would start there…just call a bunch of local dj companies and see if any of them would be willing to rent the equipment to you.
