The role is known by different names – an Emcee or the Master of Ceremony, but they all refer to the same. During events like your wedding, they are usually the ones who leave a lasting impression on your guests through hosting and facilitating the entire program. Most people want a friend or family member to fill this pivotal role, but you may want to reconsider this decision as we offer some insights into why hiring a professional MC is encouraged.
Experts in their Field
Ask yourself: Would you employ a close family member or a friend to cater the food at your reception? Most likely, you would rather hire experts in their field who understand it is a job that requires special skills. The same principles apply when you’re looking for someone to host your wedding. A reception has so many things going on concurrently with so many guests that the MC would need to be accustomed to the stress and pressure of hosting such an event. Moreover, your close friends and family would be delighted to know they can enjoy your special day without having to worry about such responsibilities. Let them chill, drink, and party with everyone else!
Hosting Activities and Games
Games have become increasingly more common as part of a wedding program lineup to entertain guests in between dish courses. Professional MCs understand the important balance between performing their formal duties and adding humor to the party as well, so you can count on them to ensure your guests get to enjoy tasteful, spontaneous jokes about the bride, groom, and the entire event for a memorable time. Most professional MCs also have a wide range of activities prepared and know which is most suitable for your guests.
Reacting to Situations
An experienced wedding emcee is a charismatic master of ceremonies that will help your show go on no matter what. Truth be told, running behind schedule is a common theme at wedding receptions. A lot of issues may occur in the middle of your reception like the stage lighting going bust or the microphone failing. Professional MCs are adept at reacting to a sudden need to change the program flow or a technical glitch in an unsuspecting and smooth way that doesn’t leave your guests in confusion. Whether you need to buy time while waiting for the bride to arrive or to speed up the flow of events, you can rest assured that a professional MC is trained for excellent time management on top of being a people’s person – so they would know exactly what to do. Keep calm as they crack a couple of jokes to lighten up the atmosphere when such things happen.
