At a wedding, there are a number of elements which need to come together to make the event successful. Events have to be timed correctly to keep everything running smoothly, and multiple people and companies who might not regularly work together have to find a way to coordinate. In a setting like this, one person guiding the action is indispensable—which is where the MC comes in.
What Is an MC?
The master of ceremonies (MC) is the person who operates the microphone, makes announcements, and also serves as the wedding DJ. Because the MC is in charge of the sound equipment, they act as the host of the event, guiding your wedding party, vendors, and guests through the events you have planned, from that first walk down the aisle to the last dance.
What Does an MC Do?
When planning an event like a wedding, you will work up a schedule for the evening, including the ceremony, drinks, photos, specific dances, and dinner. The MC is the person responsible for informing everyone of the schedule and reminding them where they need to be. They also cue the vendors when it’s time for them to play their role—directing the caterer to serve dinner and the photographer to get in place to capture important moments. The MC is also in charge of the music—which doesn’t just mean playing a set playlist in order but also reading the crowd and helping people enjoy themselves with the right music selection for the moment.
