A lot goes into planning your wedding and wedding reception. There’s invitations, guest lists, seating charts, wedding and reception venues, flowers, themes, decor, music, brides maids, groomsmen, a best man, a maid of honor, a wedding dress, bridesmaid dresses, a ring bearer, a flower girl, the officiate, bridal registries, groomsmen and bridesmaid gifts and novelty gifts for guests, just to name a few of the things that are planned.
It takes a lot of work and quite possibly a bit of time to get everything together for your big day. You may even choose to have a wedding MC to oversee announcements and provide some form of entertainment. The MC can make your wedding reception a great day.
What does a wedding master of ceremonies do?
The job of the MC for your wedding depends on what you need or want from him or her. You can choose one that will entertain your guests throughout the reception or one who coordinate activities like the bride and groom’s first dance. Traditionally, the wedding mc keeps things well organized so you can enjoy your special day without worries.
For your wedding reception, you really want an MC that knows when to take charge and when to step down to keep from dominating the event. You also want someone with a great personality who will volunteer their services like the best man or the father of the bride.
You want the MC to be able to make sentimental and humorous toasts and comments so you and your guests can be entertained and have fun on the biggest day of your life (until you have children).
Your wedding reception is the time you get to have fun and relieve the stress from all the arranging and planning from months past. The wedding MC will be responsible for announcing the grand entrance of the happy couple and may even address any special instructions given to him or her from the bride or groom.
Having all these elements well-planned and in place, as well as having a confident wedding MC, will make your day easier and better for all concerned.
