5 Reasons You Need a Killer Master of Ceremonies at Your Wedding Reception
Weddings involve a lot of planning. There are some things that you as bride or groom need to worry about for the day and other things you shouldn't worry about. A killer emcee isn't something that should be on that second list. Lets give you 6 reasons you need to hire a killer wedding DJ / Master of Ceremonies at your wedding.
1. Your guests will remember how amazing your reception was (or wasn't).
Most of the time your group that's coming to your wedding doesn't know each other. Throwing some music on shuffle is only going to take you so far. Having a emcee at your wedding will almost always guarantee that all your guests will be moving and grooving on the dance floor together. The Master of Ceremonies will read the crowd and see what they enjoying dancing to,and what they don't. A good emcee will know quickly if a crowd is going to like a song, and if not, they will fade out into something even better.
2. Not everything will go the way you want.
Most brides and grooms don't think about this because they've never planned a wedding before. As wedding professionals this is truly their job, to manage the night and everything that comes up. As an emcee they know every room , and crowd. All brides and grooms are different and there are a number of things that could go wrong in many different aspects. Leave the managing to others and enjoy your day.
3. A Master of Ceremonies is a "moments of coordinator".
There have been many parties where people don't know when the cake is being cut, first dances are happening, or the bouquet toss is occurring. An emcee coordinates all those special moments so that your whole wedding reception feels as though they are all a part of your special day. Your guests should leave the wedding knowing you as a couple better, and have had a great time form start to finish!
4. There are going to be last minute requests.
What happens if Grandma changes her mind and does want to dance with you. Maybe your dad decides he does want to give a speech before dinner, and Aunt Judy wont let dinner start without a blessing. Are you going to round everyone up and tell them where to stand? What about making sure Aunt Judy knows where to hold the microphone so everyone can hear her?Your maid of honor could help, maybe even your venue coordinator. But honestly you need someone with a microphone and great communication skills to get everything rolling and stay on track. IF you have a trained Master of Ceremonies that can handle requests you have nothing to worry about. some of the best moment of the wedding will be not planned but executed amazingly.
5. All eyes will be on - YOU
Picture this, you walk out for a first dance and the music is not playing and no one can find the music that you had queued up. So all eyes are staring at you and your blushing, not in a good way. Now stop! this is not going to happen! A trained Master of Ceremonies will always be thinking about you! You and your new husband are the stars of the night and your emcee will be the ultimate back up dancer, always making you guys the stars of the show.
