Since this book was published as a printed soft-back and eBook, it has been the leading guide to wedding MC success. Used by every professional speaker who has been asked to MC a friends wedding reception or those who want to make money using their speaking skills.
Hi there my name is Pete Miller and I’m the author of YOU CAN BE A WEDDING MC – the most widely-used guide for both professional and first-time wedding MCs worldwide. I was a singer before I became a speakers coach and then a corporate MC – so I’ve had lots of experience on stage and I know how to think on my feet.
However, it wasn’t until a client pleaded with me to MC her girlfriend’s wedding, that I discovered my true passion. That was almost two decades ago now, and I’ve MC’d over 1000 weddings and I’ve won “MC of the Year” three times, so I’ve decided to record the tricks of the MC trade and share it with you now.
Duties of the wedding MC

What you’ll get when you purchase this book, are word-for-word templates of what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. All gathered through my many years of experience in front of grinning, expectant guests – all waiting for the MC to make them feel like a star.
Take for example the Grand Entrance. Here, you introduce the world’s newest married couple to their loving family and friends. This template helps you instantly establish the party-mood right from the start. And as you can see, the hard work has already been done for you; all you need to do is fill in the blanks and away you go. It’s too easy.
And once you’ve done that, you’re on your way to a great event. However, my role as your mentor and your trainer is to take you from being just “ok” to being sensational – because remember – there’s only one chance to get it right.
What makes this book different is that I’ve studied the psychology of crowds. I’ve studied audience interaction, and answered the questions that trip-up so many would-be MCs – but that’s’ not going to be you.
Questions such as:
How do you be funny and humorous MC without telling the dumb stupid jokes that everyone has heard before?
How do you stop hecklers from making you nervous?
What are the keywords you need to say that will suddenly turn sedate guests into outrageous party animals every time?
How do you seamlessly segue from one wedding tradition to another?
What are the best, most appropriate wedding rituals to use for maximum effect?
It’s all here.
You even get advice from my best-selling wedding speeches book about what’s the best order of speeches? How long should a toast go for?
You better get used to answering all these questions, because the MC becomes the brides wedding planner, her stage manager, and her confidante. To do this, I’ll teach you true multi-tasking and show you how to use both sides of your brain at the same time to stay organised and entertaining.
This book is the same manual we use at the MC Masterclass, where we train professional public speakers to become rock-star wedding MCs and join our online agency The MC Directory. To put things in perspective, that’s a thousand dollar, three-month-long training course that we’ve condensed down into a 100-page book, just for you.
In addition, after purchasing the Book, you’ll receive an email with links to videos full of tips and tricks and more techniques to help you go from good, to great.
Of course, I cannot afford to have any unhappy MCs out there – so I personally guarantee that this best-selling handbook – that is used by all professional wedding MCs around the world – will work for you no matter what your own level of skill – or your money back; no question about it.
I wish you all the best with your wedding MCing and hope to see you on stage soon. This has been Peter Miller. Enjoy the book.
