Bose sound dock loud enough

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here used a Bose Sound dock on the beach for their ceremony? I have heard some people talk about it but I'm wondering if that was loud enough of if I should get a PA system. I have the Sound Dock and was planning on using it.

I can tell you I work for Bose, and the Sound Dock is LOUD - REAL LOUD!! We are getting married on the beach though.. I'm not sure if the sound of the beach, wind and other things will drown it out? We also have about 46 people at the ceremony and my FI will be starting her walk about 50 feet away. I'm not sure if she or everyone else would be able to hear it.

I know if I play it in my yard I can hear it at my next doors neighbors house clear as day. The issue is I love the songs we chose, and I want to be sure everyone can hear them.

How do you charge the sound dock?

You just plug it into the wall... it charges your Ipod as well

I'm so glad someone posed this question, I'm thinking of having my reception poolside, and to save some money thought about using speakers for the ipod rather than renting the sound system from the resort. Would be interested to know if people have done this!

The Sound Dock pool side should be OK. My worry is I will be on the beach for my ceremony. The beach has a lot of noise around it so I'm not sure if it will get drowned out.

The Sound Dock is VERY loud. If there is a Bose store in your area you should go check it out. Of course the best way to know is to ask someone who has done this but no one is responding :)

I plan on buying it for my wedding next month so I'll let you know when we get back. Going to be using it at the Gazebo for the ceremony and for the reception on the beach.

Awesome! Your feedback would be greatly appreciated!
My brother has a dock, plus we both have the travel speakers.....they both get quite large but hard to judge when you don't know what it's going to be like around.

I was thinking of getting the sound system for the ceremony b/c it comes with a mic, and i've read that people aren't able to hear your vows without the mic when the ceremony is on the beach!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
