Omni or Cardoid mics

I'm looking to improve the audio I get at wedding receptions. What are you guys using for shotguns or mic setups? I was using the AT897, but it's a pretty directional mic. I didn't like the way the music changes level when I turn the camera during pans and walking around. I don't know if a field recorder would be the way to go, and just use the on camera mic on an Xh A1. Set up the recorder somewhere near the speakers or something? Or maybe get a mic with an omni or cardoid pattern?
