How To Become The Best Wedding MC
So you are very lively, loud at times and the idea of being an MC clicks in your head. And weddings seem to be your favorite.
But you don’t know how, where or what to consider if you want to be the most successful MC for weddings.
We have put together the main points to consider for you to reach your goals of becoming a master of ceremonies at weddings. But remember you will never be the entertainment, yours is just to run the show in a professional humorous way.
To kick us off:
-Do your homework.
There are so many activities that will be going on during the wedding day. Make sure you have them written down so that you are never caught off-guard in any one of them.
To do this, meet with the organizer before the wedding day so that you can get familiar and also learn about all that is planned for the day.
Things like cake cutting, speeches, knowing the VIPs etc. will give your guests a feeling you know what you are doing.
This will go a long way in ensuring that you deliver on the task ahead. Interact with the music band or the dj to make sure you work in harmony. Without leaving spaces in between sections due to poor communication.
The mood should be set, maintained and dropped at any time. Humor should be incorporated in your mciing. This does not mean you have to sweat trying to provide stand-up comedy. If you are not a comedian you are not. Don’t force it. Look inside you for something else, your honesty can be a substitute for comedy. Some one-liners to spruce up the event.
-Focus on the couple.
You may choose to humorously congratulate them for the big step they have taken in life. Try and get the attention and applause from the guests.
If there are games, photo booth etc. encourage guests to get down to business without being commanding. You can highlight the advantages of each and every area so that your guests can choose the one they feel comfortable with.
-You are not a commentator!
The microphone should only be in your hands when you want to say something. Otherwise, let the music have its course.
You should be very careful during this session. You will have to introduce people and what they do, make sure you get it right. The pronunciation of people’s names should be on point. This may need practicing on some hard names before time.
Listen very carefully to each speaker so that you can grab two or three summarizing words after they are done.
Don’t just abruptly bring the party to an unforeseen end. Have a nice plan to call it off. Know what will be happening next so that you know how to lead the guests.
The party may be ending that very moment, the couple may prefer to bid everyone goodbye, another venue may be set for the continuation of the party, etc. know all this thing beforehand.
Finally, your aspirations to be a wedding mc have just been accomplished right here. It’s now upon you to make good use of them. see you on the other side.
