The is the first step to start for selection of speakers and lights suitable for the wedding, you don’t want to bring a elephant to a shed and also you can’t bring a pocket radio to a hall. It needs to have the balance of sound and acoustics matching to the venue.
One of the tricks of having good sound coverage at an event is by raising the speakers up to ear level. The most common way to do this is by using speaker on a tripod but not all the cases this can be achived, so flooring option is also possible as long as the speakers and deflect the sound towards the crowd.
Set up and run the sound system with your playback device and give it a listen. This way you can make sure it’s going to work, and you’ll have a solid idea of what it’s going to sound like.
Specific kind of cables that you need can vary depending on what kind of inputs your powered speakers have and what kind of outputs are on your mixer. This will give a good output.
The trouble with making announcements through a microphone and a loudspeaker is that you run the risk of experiencing loud feedback. This will effect the speeches and other formalities.
The reason why having an ON/OFF switch directly on the mic is a good idea is that it’s easier to kill the feedback if the person holding the mic can just turn it off.
If you plan on using a microphone, you should definitely make a point of testing it through your PA system before the wedding.
