The first contact that the MC will have with
the guests is when they need to be ushered to their seating positions
at the Reception. Most Wedding Reception venues will have a board with
a guest list attached.
||The MC may choose to use an “in house microphone”,
a “radio microphone, or the band or DJ’s microphone.
Which ever is the choice, it is important that the EQ and volume
levels of the equipment are correct, otherwise there is the chance
of feedback and distortion.
Welcoming your guests
||Once the guests are seated it is important for the MC to introduce
themselves, as well as the venue, date, and the occasion.
||For example: “Good evening ladies and gentleman, and welcome
to ………, on this the ….. day of …….,
to celebrate the marriage of ……………
||Tim also recommends getting the guests to introduce themselves
to the people directly to their left, right, behind, and ahead,
since they will be associating for at least the next 4 –5
hours. This is also a great way to settle the guests into the Reception.
