A Master of Ceremonies (M.C.) is not just someone that make announcements. The MC is the person that is responsible for tying everything together so the day or night runs smoothly , transitioning seamlessly one segment into the next. The MC coordinates with everyone present, including guests, wedding planners, photographers, videographers, catering staff, bands and
Having a friend or family member to MC is a wonderful idea and I agree as that person would have a personal connection to you. However, the downside is that the guest may find it a stressful "job" and may not be able to relax and enjoy the evening, regardless if they have experience as an MC or public speaking. Another point to consider; does your guest MC's like to have a drink? I've seen on many occasions the guest MC having a little too much to drink, then becoming loud, telling inappropriate jokes and being irritable on the mic.
As your Master of Ceremonies, I adapt to the delivery style to suit you, the audience and atmosphere of your reception. I can host several games (optional) that can make your Wedding reception even more entertaining. For a small additional fee when booking my DJ service, allow me to MC your Wedding allowing ALL guests to enjoy the evening, worry-free.
