(2) Rode Lavalier mics hooked up to H4N's should be good.
It's convenient, can be hidden, and picks up quality sound.

(for the bride and groom + whoever you want to place it on)

Two H4Ns is an expensive option (and a bulky heavy solution) if all you want to do is record lavs with them. For that money you are well on the way to a wireless solution.

The budget option would be two H1s and I am sure the BnG would be happier carrying them.

The Rode Lav is an expensive option as well considering its only real advantage over cheaper solutions is you can pin the mic head through clothing to the wire/carrier below. I'm sure the bride would be realy happy about that.....or perhaps not.

I have 3 lava mics, 1 on the groom, 1 on the pasteur, 1 on the bride if possible due to the dress and sometimes photographer dont like it so check with them. Two lava mics is channel to zoom h4n (set to pick up all 4 channel recording (eat batteries like sheit) and 3rd lava mics to camcorder or dlsr, if camcorder, both channel used...

How long would you say the recording/battery time is on your h4n while recording two of the lav's?

I normally check the battery levels every two hours but and I'm not worry about wasting batteries, if the levels indicate one bar left, I'm swapping it out, chances are, I won't get to do it later, safe then sorry. Each wedding, I drop by costco and grabbed the AA 48packs $12 bucks..no messing around with rechargeable batteries. I will only use rechargeable AA if I'm dealing with photos.

Ouch, not a big fan of Rechargeable AA's? Nothing to mess around with man, get some name-brands and they work just as well as regular batteries for many many charges. I've been using the same Duracell rechargeables for going on two years in my Sennheiser G3's and H4n. Lots of money saved, lots of planet left for my kids and their kids.

I do recycle! Once I get around to it try the rechargeable again. It's just a habit.

Which is the prime reason why I will never use rechargeable AA cells, to begin with rechargeable cells out of the gate are a few tenths of a volt lower then dry cells and when used as part of a battery pack that adds up real fast, it is like starting our with a half discharged battery pack, then there is the logistics of keeping them in lots based on the placed in use date and the number of times they have been recharged and trying to do that is insane and a time-eater that totally outweighs any benefits a rechargeable cell of that size could possibly offer.

For our uses we simply buy Industrial Energizers which can be had for about $.29 each in quantity, then load up the devices with new cells and dump them out when we are done.

Literally the cost of the cells is so far below my RADAR versus the cost of a missed take it doesn’t even matter to me.
