LoveLaceandWine:  oh okay! Well that got me thinking. I think we’ll ask sooner rather than later, just in case we have to consider someone else for whatever reason.

We asked our friend to MC about 10 months before the wedding.

I asked my cousin like 3 days before the wedding!  He’s a pretty gregarious guy and we had a very community-centric wedding, so I was pretty sure he’d say yes.

LoveLaceandWine:  We asked ours just over a year out! I don’t think there are any rules to this though, earlier, later, whatever suits! I’m sure now would be fine if you know who you’d like to ask 🙂

LoveLaceandWine:  As soon as we became engaged my fiance and his friend from college had a conversation about MCing it (we were engaged in 2011 and getting married this September) They went to school for radio so he said it was only natural to want him to MC. I say ask whenever you want….I think the sooner they know, the sooner they can prepare for it and just in case they aren’t comfortable you still have time to find someone else to do it!
