    Based on what you’ve said here, I say don’t do it. I think it’s actually a pretty big honour to be asked to be the MC (though I know some people would disagree) and I’d be super excited if someone asked me to be theirs – BUT I love doing stuff like that and I’m in my element being in front of people haha. If you’re not that type of person, then definitely politely decline. You won’t be happy, and neither will the couple once they see that you’re not comfortable.

    @Fizzy8:  Do you not want to do it so much that you would do a horrible job? I agree with the previous poster that it is really an honor to be asked. If you don’t want to do it so much that you would feel resentment or perform poorly I think you should decline.

    @Fizzy8:  If you don’t want to, don’t.

    p.s. At many weddings I’ve been to, the best man has acted as MC anyway. So (if your husband’s ok with it) you and your husband could offer the counter suggestion that he acts as MC.
