Wedding MC Service
Most people underestimate the role of a Professional Wedding MC. An MC is responsible for more than simply introducing names of a list and making announcements. A Wedding MC is responsible for how the entire night comes together. This includes, project management aspects such as making sure the reception meal times are set correctly at our meeting prior to the night, that entertainment runs on time, and that the bride and groom and bridal party as well as your guests have the correct instructions to make the night run smoothly.
Your MC will draft the schedule for the night, ensuring all aspects that you have requested are included. Your wedding MC is then responsible for making your night a success through motivating your guests and setting a happy relaxed atmosphere. Your wedding MC will know all of the correct procedures for the night including the correct order of speeches and formalities such as the cutting of the cake and the official toast which should take place.
Why NOT use uncle Bob?
We’ve all witnessed it…. the bride and groom have requested having a friend of the family to MC their wedding. I’m sure you will agree now, after knowing a little more about how important a good wedding MC is, you could imagine how messy and unprofessional the night turned out. A friend of the family should remain exactly that… a friend who sits back and enjoys the night with the bride and groom and family. Lets be honest, brides and grooms have gone to far too much trouble and financial investment on their one special day to have it ruined by a “nice gesture” from uncle Bob, who is too busy drinking and having a good time rather than focusing on being a professional MC.
Over the years there have been some blogs online and even some venues that recommend having a friend MC for you… “someone with sense of humor “. This couldn’t be further from the worst advice given for a wedding. The very nature of this suggestion is quiet ominous. The obvious question is, a sense of humor according to who? A wedding is the most diverse gathering possible. Generally has a range of age groups from 0 – 100, nationalities from all around the world, different political stance, different everything…. Now lets put your wedding in the hands of a friend who thinks his jokes are funny. Moreover, if you think an MC’s role is to randomly get up on the mic and say a few words is it, then we encourage you to read on.
A professional wedding MC spends hours and hours preparing for your special occasion. They will co-ordinate speeches and order of events, contact the venue in advance for any preparations such as sound system requirements and more, an MC will contact the performers to ensure requirements are met and they know what time to play, create a run sheet and much more. A real professional wedding MC will never leave anything up to chance and just “wing it”. Winging it is great if your putting on a casual BBQ with a few friends or making a speech at the dinner table on a random night out. We don’t “wing” weddings, they only happen once in a life time so we give it 100% for preparation, practice, and delivery.
A compromise of part MC role by the friend of the family is always welcome. This means having an some sort of arrangement where the Professional wedding MC allows uncle bob to make introductions at speech time.
We believe an MC can make or break a night simply by how the evening is run and the type of mood which is set. Wedding MC’s create the entire “feel” of your wedding reception so don’t risk anything less.
