Emcee-MC for Weddings and Events

Your Emcee/MC will control the flow of events and handle all requests through your timeline. Make sure you hire someone who is experienced and has done weddings so they are familiar and comfortable to talk in front of a crowd. If possible, having your MC as a separate person rather than the dj or band is suggested since they can walk around and make sure certain people who will be announced or introduced are in the room at that time or to give them a heads up. The DJ and Band leader have to stay on stage.

 

Is Professional Videography for your wedding suggested?

The answer is definitely YES if you are thinking weather to have video at your wedding.  Since this is supposed to be a once in a lifetime event, professional videography is a great way to capture your special day. Many people think photography is enough but from experience and feedback,  having a video is totally worth the expense.

It is the only way to hear your vows as you would be mic’d along with guest and family interviews and interaction that photos can only do so much for. Plus, editing in special photos for a montage and special songs makes it very sentimental. Plus all the main events will be captured during the reception and there are often many memorable or funny moments photography doesn’t capture.

Wedding Planning Tips

Wedding Planning Tips

Wedding Planning is an art that can be mastered with experience and time.  One does need to have the desire and people skills necessary in planning weddings. Yes you can get better while working with wedding planners, going to seminars and expos and then planning weddings on your own or with staff that has experience.  Everyone will learn from mistakes too and no matter who you are, there is never too much you can learn or know.

Taking great notes and being organized is a must.  When learning this business, do not be afraid to ask questions to people in the business or intern with a company that is reputable.  Everyone will deal with clients that are very difficult at one time or another as well as great, easy clients but the key is to be professional, positive and prompt. The 3 P’s.

Spending time with a wedding couple will help them relax and make them more comfortable with their special day. Having a wedding couple happy and satisfied is very important for your reputation as well getting business by word of mouth and referrals (the best way to get future business as that is free advertising).

All in all, wedding planning takes years to get better at. Helping with the couple’s timeline, song requests and questions leading up to the wedding is a huge part to be prepared for the big day.  When you are prepared as a wedding planner, the day of will go much smoother.  If you are ever unsure of anything, ask the couple, the venue contact or even the vendors to make sure you are on the same page.  Work hard and it will pay off.
