THAT NICE CELEBRANT MASTER OF CEREMONIES
When it comes to the wedding reception, don’t be to keen to pass the MC’s job off to one of the guests as the MC plays an important role in the overall success of your night.
An experienced Wedding MC is responsible for much more than just making the odd introduction. There is the temptation to leave this responsibility to your Favorite Uncle, Aunt or someone who can speak in public. Let them sit back and enjoy the evening as a guest, not as someone who will have to be on duty all night with a long list of responsibilities.
A professional wedding MC will help create the entire feel of your wedding reception, being responsible for managing how the entire event pans out. This includes things that you may not have even considered as the responsibility of the MC. Their job is not just announcing the arrival of the wedding party and introducing the speakers, the MC :
- ensures that the meal service is on time.
- your entertainment schedule runs on time.
- that the bride, groom and bridal party as well as your guests have the correct instructions to make the night run smoothly.
- oversee all organisational aspects of the night,
- delivering personality and a touch of class when addressing your guests.
- Dealing with the venue regarding guests needs and questions
In short, you professional wedding MC is there to pull the night together, being the point of contact that leave you, your family and the guests to enjoy the wedding reception experience.
What Does An MC Actually Do?
The MC acts as your representative to ensure that what you want from the venue happens, deals with any hiccups along the way, support your speakers and keeps a keen eye out to ensure all guests are able to responsibly enjoy themselves.
Why Hire A Professional Wedding MC ?
Your professional wedding MC is familiar with the correct procedure for running a successful wedding reception, including the correct order of speeches. Formalities such as the cutting of the cake and the official toasts, which should be a highlight of the night, will be dealt with precisely. Most importantly, they will work with you to ensure they have a clear understanding of how you want your evening to run and act as a buffer between you and any inconveniences and distractions that may divert your attention from one of the most memorable evenings of your life.
“Tracey, conducted our wedding on Saturday 23 June 2012. The actual wedding was a surprise to everyone present who thought they were attending a birthday party! (She definitely knows how to keep a secret) Tracey listened patiently to what we wanted and gave us many suggestions for a ceremony. When I blended them together and made a “short and sweet” version, she was nothing but supportive. We thoroughly appreciate her time and patience and particularly her input and experience throughout the process. We would not hesitate to recommend her to any couple wanting to tie the knot! Thanks Tracey.”
