I’m one of two MC’s at a friend’s wedding in 3 weeks. Other than waiting for the bride to get the timeline from the caterer, I have no idea what I’m doing! She hasn’t really given us any guidelines, and I’ve only been to one wedding with an MC so I need some help!
Does anyone have any pointers for me? What things to include, and stuff you’ve heard MC’s say that should probably be left out?
Thanks for any advice!!!

My FI was mc at his brother’s and cousin’s wedding, and will be again at his sister’s wedding in July. All I remember him doing is announcing things…like the entrances, special dances, stuff like that. Sorry if this doesn’t help very much.

That’s what I was thinking is all we’ll be doing, but I guess I’m wondering like do we introduce ourselves saying how we know the bride and groom? Us two MC’s are the ones who introduced them to each other, so we thought that might be kinda cool to do that, but then again, maybe nobody cares

Hey I’ve been an MC before and I would say go for it and introduce yourselves and tell the story of how you introduced them! I think people would love to hear how they met!! Other things like introducing the wedding party, introducing the people making speeches, etc. would also be something you would have to do if the bride wants you to do that. Another thing I had to do was play a couple games like a “raise the shoe” game where the bride and groom hold one of their own and one of the other’s shoes and raise which ever one depending on the questions I asked them (if the answer was the bride, for example, they would raise the bride’s shoe). The group thought this was funny and it had the whole group laughing. Other than that, I don’t think you will have to do much! Just have a drink (or two haha!) and relax! You will have so much fun!! 🙂

OMG, that game was soooo much fun at my daughter’s wedding! I had never heard of it or seen it done before! It was perfect, because they chose not to do much traditional things.

Announce the grand entrance, dinner, cake cutting, time to start speeches, first dance, bouquet toss, and garter toss.
