3 Reasons You Might Need A Sound System for Your Wedding
You've been planning your wedding for months. Maybe even years. It's going to be one of the most exciting and memorable days of your life, and you've invited all your family and friends to celebrate with you. It's the moment you've been waiting for: "I do". There's just one problem: they can't hear a word anybody is saying! In our experience, this is one of the most common problems with many weddings we've attended as guests. Luckily, it's pretty easy to plan for and fix. Here are a few reasons you might want to consider using a sound system at your wedding:
1. You have more than 75 guests attending your wedding
It's simple really - the more people you invite, the more seating there is that's farther away from the front. Add to that the clicking of a camera, a child whispering, or someone shuffling their feet. Those small noises we usually don't pay attention to add up quickly in a large crowd and if you're too far away from the person speaking, it can be difficult to make out what they're saying.
It can be really nice to have a small intimate wedding ceremony with only a few people, and you can probably get away without a sound system for that. In my experience, once that number gets to about 75 people, it's time to add some amplification for the benefit of those farther away or hard of hearing. That's based on a "quiet" environment, which leads to the next point.
2. You're having an outdoor ceremony
Outdoor weddings are beautiful - however they can make it quite difficult to hear what's going on. Inside, sound has a lot of ways to get to you; of course it arrives directly, but it also reflects off the walls and other hard surfaces. When you're outside you get the direct sound only, which is cleaner but doesn't travel as far. Add to that the wind and any nearby traffic, and it gets worse. Above I noted 75 people is about the threshold. However if you're outside in the wind, that drops to about 50 people in my experience.
3. You're planning on playing music
Most couples have music for their ceremony, and have a dance or at least background music for the reception later. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but that Bluetooth speaker probably isn't going to cut it. Most barely even get loud enough to fill a normal room, much less a dance floor or crowd of people outside. If you want to throw a great dance party, you'll need some speakers that are up to the task.
