An element that many couples over look is the Master of Ceremony (MC). Why do they even exist? An MC is very beneficial at a wedding; or any other event. The Master of Ceremony is kind of like the stage manager in a play. The only difference is that a MC is also one of the actors. Let’s take a look at how beneficial a MC is for an event:
1) The MC makes sure that everything goes smoothly and timely at an event. They coordinate, direct, and announce all of the reception proceedings- (bridal party, meals, cutting of the cake, ending thank you, etc.)
2)A great MC makes sure that everyone is in their places before any announcements; coordinating with everyone (ex. making sure the photographers are prepared to capture special moments.)
3)Entertaining and interacting with your guest; usually with humor.
4)Eliminates awkward pauses where the hosts and guests don’t know what is happening or what to do next.
5) Removes stress from the couple who should be enjoying their day.
