Raise a Glass! Toastmasters & MCs

At a wedding it can be difficult to be heard.

It can be difficult to run to time, too. 

All the excitement, drama and sentiment on display: excited guests clumped together barely drawing breath from their conversations; the brides or grooms too love-drunk (or drunk-drunk) to micro-manage the speeches; the Father-in-law doing the lindy hop with gusto on the dance floor; the venue coordinator dealing with a flood in the kitchens...

The schedule of a day can go awry.

Once the bar is open and the legal bit is done. Why not let everyone kick off their kitten heels, cast aside their waistcoats and have a good time. 

Let someone else tie all the details, the arrangements and the timings together. 

Sound good?
So, who then..?

  • introduces the DJ or band?
  • introduces the speeches?
  • introduces the happy couple?
  • helps the photographer herd the guests into groups?
  • announces the first dance? the cutting of the cake? the bouquet toss?

A Toastmaster can. 

He/she can do all this and more, beside. 

A toastmaster is the easy-to-spot, friendly face who can liaise with the venue, services and guests. Think of them as eyes, ears and mouth for hire. These natural born public speakers will add a professional edge to the day and of course, some pomp. And who doesn't love a bit of pomp?

But most of all, after all that planning, wouldn't it be nice to get someone else to sort the small, fiddly bits out?

We think it's definitely worth it. That's why we have a number of Toastmasters in our directory and we'd like to introduce them to you. Find more fantastic wedding services here
