Help a grandmother out...

Dearly loved but severely hearing impaired/deaf family member + unscripted wedding/vacation. Are there any solutions, technological or other, that you can recommend that might help them, and by proxy us, enjoy the festivities by knowing what key players are saying?

So the topic basically says it all, we'd just like to have her grandmother be able to follow/understand the highpoints of the ceremony/toasts/etc at our upcoming wedding. She can usually read the lips of people she knows well but complete strangers will likely be an unsolvable puzzle.
I have techie (software and auditory/musical/PA equipment-wise) friends and potentially up to a few hundred bucks to throw at the right solution. The wedding is in 2 months or so and we could start beta-testing any setup we decide to go with in the meantime. The ceremony is outdoors and on the beach, so wind may or may not be an issue.
Thanks for your help, it means alot.
