Sweet tables have grabbed the imagination of the brides this wedding season
Here is another variation that we haven’t seen before. The white jar at the back had Gingerbreads hidden in them; once discovered, they didn’t last long.
There was no need for this sweets table to be covered over and hidden from view. We simply managed to slide it into place on the other side of the bridal table when the cake was cut. It worked a treat (excuse the pun)
PS will be blogging soon we will be blogging soon about some amazing wedding dresses – recently there has been so many extra-ordinary designs – you are gonna love them!
Good photos are still worth a thousand words …
A good photo should instantly reveal your personality for the whole world to see. It must imply ‘Hi there – I am organized. I am entertaining. And I am here to serve you.’
For a Master of Ceremonies this means microphone in hand, smiling and creating rapport with their audience.
This is 1000x better than the staged studio shot.
Unfortunately, these shots are difficult to find; most of them will look like you are trying to shove the microphone up your nose!
The next best thing is a photo of the wedding MC with your happy clients – the bride and groom.
At WeddingMC.com.au, we have instructed all our Master of Ceremonies to take their camera with them and ensure the bride is in the centre; this needs to be a threesome shot; like a combined effort.
Also the MC should be holding the microphone somewhere around their chest height so it is included in the photo – that way, there is no mistaking who is the one working the crowd.

Eileen is the bride and groom’s secret weapon for a smooth and successful wedding reception.
Besides being multi-lingual in English, Filipino (Tagalog) and Spanish, this multi-talented MC is highly organised, spontaneous and witty.
Eileen’s natural charisma will make your guests feel like she has known them forever!
As you can see from the photos of Eileen, she is a vivacious and charming host and ready to guide you throughout the entire event. She is particularly renowned for her ad-libbing talent and warm personality. (click for website access)
You’ll know that your wedding reception is in safe hands since Eileen has planned more than 350 weddings at Wedding Expressions Ltd.
Furthermore, she spent four years as a Flight Attendant for Saudi Arabian Airlines, so she knows how to conduct herself with grace and elegance.
As Eileen herself says:
I love weddings and I want your reception to be perfect like you do. I understand the importance that a MC has for every bride and groom. I will do everything possible to make it run smoothly and add those little touches that experience tells me an audience will appreciate.
One of the most VITAL decisions a bride and groom have to make is
“who will be our Master of Ceremonies?
Many people will tell you that the MC will make or break your wedding reception.
Bride and grooms can watch a short video of each MC previewing their unique personality; each couple then has a choice on which MC matches their type of wedding reception .
There is a variety of different multilingual MCs to suit their particular style; saving them precious time …
I took this pic as reference for any brides looking for ideas on how to keep the guests involved.
This simple idea was very popular cause it was so easy to do e.g. take a pic using the white Fuji Polaroid camera and then immediately stick the photo in a nice large album with some nice words from the guests in the pic
As a wedding reception emcee, you always want to appear elegant and in control. Like the dog whisperer, you must be in control of the microphone and not let it control you. You make the microphone your trusted friend by holding it in a relaxed manner and speaking across the top.
Many guests with bad hearing will be reading your lips so make sure that the microphone does not obstruct and cover your mouth.
Because of germs, I always take my own CORDLESS microphone and plug it into the venue’s own PA speaker system. By not using the sub-standard lectern microphone, I am not tied to the one spot and can move into the CENTER of the dance-floor and invigorate the guests with my energy and enthusiasm.
Be on the look-out for more Master of Ceremonies TIPS at our blog, website or this channel.
I will see you on stage. Best wishes from 3x ‘MC Of The Year’ Pete Miller
