Hiring a professional for the job is very important for many reasons, especially when it pertains to your wedding ceremony. Oftentimes, we hear the words “We’re on a Tight Budget” from potential clients, and although establishing a realistic budget is imperative, it is more crucial, however, to understand what NOT to cut from the bottom line just to make the numbers fit on paper. Oftentimes, brides and grooms alike are not aware of the benefits of having a true sound professional present on their special day.
So, before making the final decision to forgo “professional sound assistance” at the ceremony, first, ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I having an outdoor ceremony?
- Will there be more than 25-30 people at my wedding?
- Do I want my wedding to run smoothly, without complications?
If you answered “yes” to any of the previous questions then please read further.
When having an outdoor ceremony, clear sound amplification is vital. After all, it is nice to hear what the wedding officiant is saying to the audience in addition to clearly hearing the soloist who will be singing a special song; (that they rehearsed for months) however, if they aren’t able to project at a decent volume level, people who are sitting past the fifth row will not be able to hear what is being spoken or sung.
Voices should be outwardly heard and not softly uttered. A lapel microphone coupled with a directional mic receiver/ transmitter package and a high powered sound reinforcement system will ensure clarity and preciseness. To the average reader, it sounds very high tech and expensive to obtain, but in actuality, it is not. Moreover, enlisting a professional who will be present the day of the event will ensure a problem free occasion.
