Let’s face it, a wedding MC will either make or break your wedding day. He/She is basically in control of your wedding function. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the best person running your day.
Here is what to look for when choosing your MC:
He/She should have a good Sense of Humor – An MC should be able to bring laughter and build happiness through your event. Ask him/her to show you his previous work which will allow you to be rest assured that the ceremony is in good hands.
He/she should be a good Public Speaker – Your wedding MC should be comfortable with big crowds. As a couple, ensure that you see his or her previous work before you hire or appoint them. Just to be on the safe side, do not take chances.
He/she should be a Time Keeper – We all know of that one relative that will give a long speech. A good MC will always let the key speakers know that they shouldn’t take long. It is his/her responsibility to ensure that everything runs smoothly and on time.
He/She should be Responsible – Responsibility begins with not taking alcohol before your duties. Secondly, the MC will show responsibility by ensuring everything is moving at a reasonable pace. A good MC is always ready for whatever could go wrong.
He/She should be Versatile – you need a master or mistress of ceremony who is flexible. Someone who can do different event themes always has a creative mind; and that’s the kind of person you need.
He/She should be able to Understand Your Vision – basically, the couple has a dream or an idea of how the function or the evening should go. The MC then takes over as per the instructions of the couple , sits with them and prepares a timeline and he/she is responsible for executing them. Coordination with fellow service professionals is a key part of executing this vision into reality. So feel free to ask around or make calls, just to make sure you have the right person for the Emceeing job.
