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.

How To Plan Your Wedding Timeline

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most important aspects is the event timeline. This is necessary to keep everybody on schedule and make sure nothing gets lost in the shuffle. Here at DJ Cutt Entertainment, we understand the importance of preparation. That’s why we have our own online planning form for you to use with the specific times that we need to know. On your wedding day we will try our hardest to hit these specific events at the specific times. However, we approach the entire day with a commitment to flexibility, because we know many things can run late (or early) during the actual event. Often times, you won’t know what time the day should start but you have a hard out when the event must end. Our approach is to plan the timeline in reverse so that way you know exactly what time to start your event versus just trying to guess. Many venues have a hard cut off time that you have to be out by and a time that the vendors have to be out by as well. What time do weddings typically end? After DJing weddings the past 15 years in Oregon and Portland, the average end time is somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We have had weddings go till at least 3 in the morning but 90 to 95% of weddings and at this time.
