Tips to be a charming emcee at your friend’s wedding

May 10 2017     By Asha Parvathy


No modern wedding is complete without an emcee or the master of ceremony. Emcees are an important element of organising a wonderful wedding reception.

 

Many wedding planners themselves provide professional emcees while organising a wedding, but those who are on a budget may find it difficult to employ a professional. You need to realise an important point that there is no strict rule that only a professional could be the master of ceremony.

You could ask someone from your family to take the role. It could be either a brother, sister or even your best friend. The only qualification required is that the person must be smart, lively and articulate.

 

A relative or the best friend will be a better option than a professional stranger as the person would know you and your family very well. That will help the emcee to connect well with the newlyweds and the guests.

 

They could bring an element of emotions to the ceremony by sharing a childhood anecdote of the bride or the groom and could ensure the participation of the rest of the family thus organise the event accordingly.

 

They will know you and your families’ preferences and thus give a personal touch to the event.

 

As you are the one who is taking the function forward you should have a detailed knowledge of the plan prepared for the smooth conduct of the event. You should know when and at what point of the function you need to appear and who all should be on the stage at what point of the event.

Don't forget to encourage and congratulate the participants. Keep the guests entertained, don't turn the event your chance to show you rhetoric skills as people are there for a wedding reception not to listen to your speech.

 

Make the function lively with your charm and energy; you could thus give the professional emcees a run for their money.
