It may be small but it's powerful. Do you think this would work? I really REALLY do NOT want to have to pay the $350 an hour to rent their sound system and I refuse to hire a DJ. We're getting married on the beach terrace. Let me know your thoughts and thanks so much for all the insight!
If your ceremony and everything else is on the beach terrace, your sound system just may work...But if you have anything on the beach you may want to ask the resort what they think only because the ocean can get pretty noisy. Our ceremony was on the beach and all I know is that they set up speakers that faced out to the ocean and the music was def. loud enough over the ocean noise. We also used a microphone for the vowels and the officiant, so you may want to ask the resort if you can still get the microphone even if you dont rent their sound system. The sound system is $150/hr....I am not aware of it being $350/hr.
Below is my reception table set up...you can see the votive/tea light holders. That centerpiece came with the package.
