wireless mic setups for weddings

Can someone tell me what type of wireless setup they use for the podium speaker at a wedding. Which works better, a handheld wireless on a mic stand near the speaker or a laviler mounted on the stem of the house mic or a some other location around the podium? The speaker cannot wear the wireless.

I've used both systems depending on the church I'm working in. I actually prefer to clip a lavalier to the gooseneck on the podium so this year thats what I'll be doing. The reason is no one really notices that so the chances of it being moved around are minimal.

Gotta be honest-even though I'm Jewish I haven't shot a Jewish wedding in almost 3 years, and so far for 2004 I don't have any booked, no particular reason just how it happened to work out.

Don,
What brand of wireless do you use and do you use omni directional lavalier or directional?

I use 2 Azden 500UDR's with Sony ECM44 lavaliers.
I also have an Azden handheld wireless.

The only thing I don't like about the Azdens is the size of the receivers, they are kinda big but a LOT smaller than the old Shures I used to use for years until I got these.

If your budget allows, you can't beat Lectrosonics... (Well, there are a few pricier choices... but not too many.)

I'd even STRONGLY recommend getting a Lectro system USED. There are always people who are scared to buy used, but this isn't like a ribbon mic... they are more like sledge hammers.

So far I've bought two Lectro systems used and I couldn't be happier. A year ago people told me how dissappointed I'd be with a non-diversity VHF system... sounds like I'm describing a cheapy don't it?

Well, I'd investigated the frequency blocks in my area and so far, knock on wood, I've never had anything but PERFECT sound. No hiss, pops, drop-outs... and the clarity is stunning.

Each system cost me between $500-$600... and I normally use a Tram... Use a Lectro with a Tram on that gooseneck and you won't believe what gets sent to your camera.
