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.

I will see you on stage. Best wishes from 3x ‘MC Of The Year’ Pete Miller
