i’ve definitely heard of people designate main helpers, but i haven’t heard them called hosts. if you’re diying a lot, you definitely need people to help set up and dismantle if you can’t hire a doc. as for how many people you need, it would depend on how much there is to do…do you also have a florist? servers to hand out the cake?

In my experience, the setting up and breaking down is done by the wedding planner & DOC. The emcee is usally the DJ or a family member.

The venue sets up and breaks down in my case.

We haven’t talked about this for our wedding, but in my area it’s very common to have a ‘host couple’ or two. It’s kind of funny though, some of my very good friends have already called ‘dibs’ on NOT being the host couple. No one really likes cleaning up or keeping an eye out at the party, but it is considered an honor.

most of the catering staff took care of this at my wedding.  Any stuff that had to be taken home was carried about by my brother and his wife because she doesn’t drink and had a car to take things home.
