Unbalanced wireless into balanced mixer input??

Hi everyone. New here, but I've been lurking for a month or so. I've learned a lot from what appears to be a great bunch of people here.
My question....I want to try some multi track recording with my laptop. As a for instance...at a wedding...I mic the groom, officiant, podium for readers, and musicians(if any). I'm tired of trying to manage all that with 3 wireless Sony's(UWP-C) into camera's and an iRiver (or 2). So I thought I would try the laptop. The firewire mixers I've looked at are all balanced inputs...(the Presonus Firebox is the one I'm thinking about using). Can I run the unbalanced output of the wireless into the balanced Firebox without causing any problems?
Thanks
Mark

Yes, you can. Additionally, the Firebox has 1/4 inputs, so you don't need an adapter if you have the UWP 3.5mm to 1/4 cable.
