I have heard many horror stories at my consultations and at myperformances over the years about how the MC ruined their wedding,their family members wedding or their friends wedding.
Here are some examples:“The MC never showed up.”
“We hired a friend of the family really cheap and he canceled a weekbefore because he forgot that he was attending a music festival on mywedding day.”
“The MC was drunk. “
“The MC miss-pronounced all the names to my wedding party”
“MC said vulgar and obscene things on the microphone.”
“The MC wasdressed shabbily.”“The MC left right after theintroduction”“The MC gave no direction or made anyannouncements. No one knew what was coming up next or what was goingon.”
“The MC didnt follow the time-line we gave him”
“The MC thought the wedding was about him with his funny antics andcompletely forgot that it was about the bride and groom.”
“The MC took a number of smoke breaks outside.”“The MC was hitting on the bridesmaids and other female guest”
“The MC forgot to mention the cutting of the cake”These are just a few!And we wonder why so many people don't take what we do seriously!Here are some things to consider when hiring your wedding MC:Does your MC have references from other wedding vendors, local banquet halls and hotels, from bride and grooms?
Have others heard about your MC? If not, why not?Do they have current reviews online? Will they know how to read a crowd?Do they have a professional looking web site? That is one of their calling cards!
There are many levels of talent in MC's. Not all MC are created equal!Will your guests be entertained?
Will it be FUN at your wedding?Finally..Will you be able to enjoy your wedding day and have fun with your family and friends, and feel comfortable knowing you hired a trusted professional who will carry out the outline, your wishes, plans, requests, for your most important day?
Will you feel comfortable about thewedding entertainer you hired for your wedding, or will it be abouthow much you saved hiring a cheap MC or having a close friend orfamily member do it?
Don't play the roulette wheel with your wedding entertainment. It might endup landing on the horror story MC!
