This is a great question. And this Byron Bay male celebrant reckons yes! If you want to make sure your wedding reception goes off without a hitch, you’ll want to call in the pros.
We all have a friend or a relative who has the gift of the gab and can work a room. But by asking a friend or relative to MC your reception, you’re placing a burden on someone who would probably want to party the night away with all your other guests. Plus, are you sure your drunk uncle won’t end up telling stories of you running around in your undies when you were five?
I’m sure most of us can relate to the slow-motion train-crash of watching someone who might have had a few too many try and MC a wedding reception. Sure, they’re enthusiastic, but they end up loving the mic just that little bit too much. Then they make that one horrible joke or insensitive comment, and you can cut the tension with a knife. A bad MC will kill a room and replace the good vibrations with an awkward silence.
Taking the risk that your favorite uncle won’t stuff things up just isn’t worth the grief. After all, your beloved uncle should be there to share and enjoy the good vibes, not kill them.
No, for the perfectly orchestrated wedding reception, you’ll want to employ a professional master or mistress of ceremonies. Someone who will take the time to get to know you and your partner and be able to create and maintain the perfect vibe during the entirety of the reception.
The ultimate goal for any exceptional professional MC is about taking away the anxiety from you the couple for the night. So you can relax knowing everything is taken care of. A professional MC is about controlling the emotional flow of the reception, seamlessly allowing the day or evening to unfold naturally.
I love MCing for my couples. Because I’ve already built an emotional connection with a couple by being their Gold Coast Celebrant, I’m the perfect choice for being their Byron Bay MC too.
I feel my job as MC is to help lift your wedding reception to the next level throughout the evening. Building on the good vibes from the ceremony and creating new emotional peaks during the dinner at night. To seamlessly conduct the perfect reception from go to woe and bringing to life the wedding you’ve always dreamed of. To be your friend by creating the most awesome experience for you, your guests, and your favourite uncle too.
After all, the key to the perfect reception is all about the feels.
