CONGRATS!! Hope it is everything you have been planning and hoping for!! Can't wait for your review. Are you doing a planning thread, too?
I don't get married until August, but let me know how the sound quality turns out and I would consider splitting the cost with you. We are expecting 65 guests, want to make sure it will be loud enough for the ceremony and reception. I read a bunch of reviews but couldn't make a good decision based on what I read.

i'm not sure if this is the right thread to post in, but here goes. as my fiance and i are not big on dancing, we opted to bring a sound system that also acts as a microphone to be used during the ceremony as well as the toasts and speeches during dinner. it is a stand alone item that is used for outdoor events. http://www.ionaudio....cker-2010-model - also known as the blockrocker!
we will also use it at our bonfire. we figured this is much cheaper than getting the dj and sound system. the most important thing for us was the microphone. i am trying to find out if any brides that will be there after our wedding who would like to buy it from us for their use. figured i'd try to make my money back as well as save someone else the hassle of lugging one of these things down. we purchased it for $140 and would like to get that back. i think it's fair as it will have only been used twice and you save on the troubles of bringing it there, and also $20 that it costs to ship it as a second luggage. if anyone is interested, please let me know!!
if no one is interested, i hope this at least serves as a good alternative for the brides who are in similar situations, just want a good mic option for both the ceremony and the dinner.
thanks and happy planning.
