What is a Wedding MC?

Updated: Apr 23, 2019

One of the benefits to having a DJ is you also have an MC as well. This really helps bring your entertainment to another level to ensure the entire experience for you and your guests is exceptional. Hiring a DJ is also hiring a professional to serve in these different capacities.

Your DJ wears many hats on your wedding day and your MC is one of the most important ones. It is a role that brings everything together and is the foundation to the enjoyment of everyone.


The role of a Host is to greet the customer to make them feel comfortable and welcome. To ensure they know where they are to stand or sit and to assist the other vendors with transition periods in which guests have to move throughout the venue or different parts of the Wedding. Your Wedding MC will be there to represent you as a couple with a smile, a hand shake and a kind word to make your guests feel like they are playing a very special role in your day. Your MC wants your guests to feel appreciated and we set an atmosphere of hospitality. 


Your guests want to have a good time and they want to have a party. They want to celebrate, they want to dance, and an MC will assist you and your guests to ensure that happens. We will hype everyone up at the perfect times: during wedding party introductions, during different parts of the wedding, of course during the dancing part of the night to keep the energy up.


Your wedding will have a timeline and there are so many different things that will affect and be affected by that timeline. From ensuring your ceremony starts on time, to being able to have your family in the right place prior to your reception for introductions and to partnering with your photographer & wedding coordinator to help move the guests from ceremony site to cocktail hour so that you can get all of your formal pictures at the allotted time. Your guests will want to know what is "happening next" and your Wedding MC will guide them through the evening so that you can just enjoy your day. We keep things moving so that your dinner can be hot and ready for your guests to enjoy. 


This also connects to announcing the beginning of the wedding reception, your bridal party members, your first dance, your dance with your parents, cake cutting, bouquet toss, garter toss and letting guests know when to go through the buffet and how that process will happen. Your Wedding MC will make any necessary announcements to ensure that everyone is informed of the flow of the evening and important details about the reception, the venue, etc. 

The most important thing to take away from this is to let your DJ know how interactive you want them as the MC of your wedding to be.
