3 Things You Must Know About Being The Wedding MC
Congratulations, you’ve just acceped an invitation to be the the wedding mc at the forthcoming nuptials of a relative or close friend. I hope you realize this comes with quite a burden of responsibility.As the master of ceremonies it is your task to ensure the reception runs smoothly.
Here are some top tips to help you be a big hit as the wedding mc.
1. Clearly Identify Your Duties As The Wedding MC
The mc is in charge of ensuring the various events planned for the nuptial party happen in an orderly manner and according to the agreed timetable.
The duties of a mc are not set in stone. It very much depends on the type of nuptial party and the role the bride and groom want you to undertake. You must therefore sit down with the couple and agree, in as much detail as possible, the duties you will carry out.
2. Assemble A Running Sheet
Planning is vital if you are to make a success of your role. The only way you can stay focused and in control of nerves is to know exactly what happens when and where and who’s involved.
You need to construct a running sheet that shows, minute by minute, what is to happen when, where and with whom.
And you have to liase with all the leading participants to ensure they know what they have to do and when. For instance, do all those making a speech know how long they have to speak for?
You really do need to put a lot of time and effort to make the role of wedding mc seem easy and natural.
3. Don’t Take Center Stage
Let’s be very clear. You are not part of the nuptial party entertainment. You may organize some easy to play party games as a means of helping the guests mix and, yes, you can tell a light hearted joke when introducing a particular ceremony. However, you are not a stand up comedian or a ‘star’ turn.
A successful mc is unassuming letting the limelight clearly fall on the bridal couple.
I have one last piece of advice for you. Get this wedding mc book. From checklists and templates to party one-liners, jokes and easy to play party games this book has everything need to know. It’s not just about what you have to do, it’s about how you do it. Adopt its very practical advice and you really can be a big hit as the mc.
