Here's the poor mans version I've been using at the local high school for the last few years.

That's brilliant! Having the company/school logo on it would be even better, but then it wouldn't be free.

For some additional reading might I suggest a couple of threads from another forum:

The Bra is my usual go to. Now if you end up with a Woman who has no pockets, no belts and no bra, then you are in a pickle ( and have one rather bold woman ). They are usually relegated to holding it or having it taped to them. Fun times. Just remember to be very respectful and avoid the #Me Too behaviors. I.E. don't ask to attach it to their underwear.......

Uh... Isn't a bra underwear? Yeah, I know what you're saying - just having a little fun.

I have also requested for the mother of the bride to advise the tailor who is altering the dress to make matching cozies to pin to the dress.  This avoids the problem of labels in the pictures.  They can also make a tube to feed the mic cable in to help hide this some also.

In this case why not have the tailor make a pouch on the inside of the dress in the first place?

You know...........given what they cost and what they're used for, wedding dresses should come with bodypack pouches as standard equipment!!!

I have clipped belt packs on bras a few times. Doing an event once where I had to clip multiple mics onto multiple people. Majority were younger females still in College or University. One of them just pulled the back or her Lulu Lemon pants out and told me to clip it there. I didn't know if she meant the pants or her thong  ;D

Contact your local warden, he (she) may have a few ideas of where you can hide stuff.

FWIW. Under wigs are another possibility. This depends on he size of the transmitter packs. You need to put the pack in a meshed bag and then hairpin the heck out of it. Did this for a CATS production. All of the cast were in bodysuits and the director didnít want to see the bulge from a waist pack. 

Good luck.
