When you MC A Wedding reception there will be certain expectations by the bride and groom and the wedding planners.
You’re expected to know what to do and what to say throughout the reception.
You’re expected to make the reception a fun time.
You’re expected to oversee – and introduce – all of the events at the reception.
You’re expected to look after the bride and groom so they can enjoy themselves and have a fun time with their closest friends and relatives without having to worry about the reception.
Of course, you know that this list is an oversimplification of the what a Wedding MC must do.
And while it seems like a small list of things to do, in reality there’s a huge amount of preparation that must take place – and more things to do – before the wedding reception begins.
Here are 4 tips to help you prepare when you MC A Wedding reception.
MC A Wedding – Tip #1 – Prepare Your Wedding MC Scripts
When you’re in front of 100…200…300…or more wedding guests you don’t want to be tongue-tied.
By creating your Wedding MC Scripts and rehearsing them so you know what you’re going to say you’ll feel much more confident in front of a large audience until your nervousness disappears.
Your main Wedding MC Script will be the Wedding MC Opening Speech where you welcome the wedding guests to the reception.
You’ll have other Wedding MC Scripts for key events throughout the reception.
Again, make sure you rehearse your Wedding MC Scripts so they sound “natural.”
MC A Wedding – Tip #2 – Follow Your Wedding Reception Timeline
There are two Wedding Reception Timelines that you follow as Wedding MC.
The first Wedding Reception Timeline is the one you work with as you prepare the wedding reception agenda. These are the things you have to do to create a fun wedding reception.
The second Wedding Reception Timeline is included with your wedding agenda or run sheet. This lists the key events of the reception, how long they should take, and when they start and finish.
MC A Wedding – Tip #3 – Prepare A Contingency Plan
Preparing a contingency plan – in consultation with the wedding planners – is just as important as preparing the wedding agenda.
After all, things do – and can – go wrong.
Last minute changes are part of the reception, too.
A change in the weather.
A delay in the arrival of the bride and groom.
Someone falls ill during the reception.
A wedding speaker can’t make the reception and has to cancel his wedding speech.
They’re all things you have to anticipate and have a Plan “B” for if you want to make sure the reception proceeds smoothly and isn’t ruined.
MC A Wedding – Tip #4 – Choose Fun Wedding Games
The reception is all about having fun since it’s a party and a celebration of the newlywed’s big day.
Your role as Wedding MC is to choose fun wedding games that keep the guests entertained as the reception progresses.
