What Does a Wedding MC Do

One of the most overlooked and important announcements the MC can make once the ceremony is over involves making sure everyone knows how to locate the restroom.

One of the most overlooked and important announcements the MC can make once the ceremony is over involves making sure everyone knows how to locate the restroom. The MC should hop on the microphone and essentially give guests the lay of the land, saying something like, “Hey, my name is Alex, I’m going to be your entertainer tonight–we have our bathrooms over in this area, we have a designated smoking area over here, this is where you can get water, there’s also a dinner chart,” and so on and so forth. People should not have to ask for these things individually.

 

We suggest making announcements every five minutes surrounding an event. Before an event, you would give a fifteen-minute announcement, then a ten-minute warning, and then finally give a five-minute heads-up. Right before the event, get everyone on the same page so everything runs as smoothly as possible. At dinner, the MC can help to direct traffic and keep people in the loop with announcements. Before the toasts and speeches, make sure you know the correct order so that the microphone can be passed seamlessly without awkwardness. You also want to teach the speakers how to properly speak into the microphone so that everyone can hear clearly. Communication with the catering company can inform additional announcements about food, drink, etc. Again, make sure your MC has the play-by-play so they can make your event go as smooth as possible.

Why Your Next Event Needs A Photo Booth

You invest significant amounts of time and money in creating a wonderful event, but then it’s over. Afterwards, it might feel like much of that effort was wasted, unless you do a great job of documenting all the fun. That’s where a professional photo booth comes in. Photo booths have become a very common site at weddings of all types and sizes, but plenty of other events can benefit from having one as well. From corporate parties and trade shows to school dances and birthday parties, photo booths create instant memories that will be cherished forever, while ensuring your guests or potential customers will associate you with a successful event. Best of all, photo booths are typically much cheaper than hiring a professional event photographer, while making it easy for people to go home with plenty of pictures.
