You’re a few months away from the reception day. You begin thinking about who will be the Master of Ceremonies (MC) at your reception. Will it be Uncle Ron or cousin Harvinder? Uncle Ron gets a bit too rowdy and cousin Harvinder is a bit too shy. They both really want to be your MC.
So, who do you pick? Well, you don’t have to pick! One of today’s blooming trends is to hire a Professional MC. These individuals carry the skill set and confidence to speak in front of large crowds and engage the audience. With a Professional MC, you won’t have to worry about embarrassing stories (that you weren’t aware were going to be told), or the awkward not-so-funny jokes.
Here are top three reasons why hiring a Professional MC can lead you to a successful and enjoyable reception.
A strong, confident voice is required in order to grab your guest’s attention. A Professional MC is able to capture your guest’s attention without having to get too loud or too aggressive. They know exactly how to settle down your guests and get the night started. They can create the right ‘build-up’ to introduce the bride and groom or gather your guests for a group picture without a hitch.
Maintaining your guest’s attention is extremely important. A Professional MC knows how to engage your audience. Those small breaks between the cake cutting and the next speech are the perfect time to have some fun! Professional MC’s have a ton of audience interaction games to really get your guests excited and involved. Professional MC’s are natural entertainers.
Now and then, things might get switched around. Professional MC’s know how to adapt to changing schedules and events. They are able to think on their feet to create fillers. They keep the transition smooth and quick so the audience won’t notice there was a change. Planned or unplanned, the MC will add excitement to your reception, making it better than ever.
The greatest thing about a Professional MC is that they are a professional. They have perfected their art to get the job done right. As our dear friend MC Donovan Fernandes explained, “The MC should always be on his/her feet, and is constantly watching the faces of the bride and groom and the rest of the crowd.” Keeping it authentic and fun, a Professional MC can definitely make your reception a memorable one!
