We'll Test It Out and See How It Goes

I'm not usually one to be swindled by info-mercials. And yet today I bought something for our wedding that looks like it's straight out of one: it's a portable, wireless PA system. It's good for football games, church functions, BINGO--you name it!

Since we're getting married outside, we need something that doesn't need a plug. Even though the ceremony will be intimate and close, I want to make sure all the speakers' voices are heard. There's nothing worse than going to a wedding where you can't actually hear what is being said. Argh!

Apparently there's a "courteous" money-back guarantee if we're not satisfied. It only cost $99 (and I ordered an extra cord so we can plug an iPod into it). As soon as it arrives, we'll test it out in the backyard and see how it goes.

It does seem too good to be true, but it sounds as if it worked really well for your ceremony! My partner and I are having a Northern California beach wedding this July and are coming across the same sound concerns you mentioned. Do you happen to know how long it runs on batteries if in continual use varying between mic use and iPod playing? I hate to talk electronic specifics on your amazing and sincere blog, but I figured you'd be the best person to ask. Thank you Sara and happy spring!

No worries!

Unfortunately, I don't know the battery life. We used it for a swing dancing class (approximately 45 minutes) on Friday night and then our ceremony on Saturday (both before, during, and after--approximately 1 hour). You could always just have back-up batteries in case!
