Why hire a Wedding MC*?
The modern wedding host is so much more than just a funny guy or girl with a mic.
They work with the wedding planners, organisers, venue staff, the DJ and live band, photographers and videographers to keep your event running smoothly and to time.
The pro wedding MC seamlessly moves your guests from one activity to another. Introducing the speeches, to cheering the cake cutting, to introducing the first dance, to moving everyone outside for spectacular fireworks – all the while keeping the guests entertained and full of smiles.
Hiring a pro event host is much better than asking a friend.
Your wedding MC will chat with you before to learn about you, your guests and your wedding visions and ideas. Our professional MCs become an honorary family member or close friend for the duration of the wedding reception to ensure that your vision becomes a reality.
The biggest mistake a bride and groom can make is asking a friend to MC their wedding.
The wedding MC role is nowhere near as smooth and elegant as professionals make it seem. The art is making it look easy.
It takes experience to think on your feet and know the right things to say and hewn to say them.
It takes expertise move guests around the wedding venue, keep segments running to time and smooth over unexpected problems. Even learning how to hold the microphone correctly takes training!
We believe that all of your guests should be enjoying the wedding reception with you – there shouldn’t be someone running around stressed out trying to MC when all they’d rather do is dance and drink.
Wedding MCing is nerve-wracking and piles the pressure on your friend.
Take our advice: if your friend is a good public speaker with an effervescent and outgoing personality, get them to make a speech. They’ll love the limelight and then party on. Don’t burden them with unfamiliar wedding MC tasks.
