What does a Master of ceremonies do?

First it is important to know exactly what a master of ceremonies is. A master of ceremonies can best be described as "the director" on your big day. Unlike a wedding planner who takes care of the total picture from A to Z, the master of ceremonies is responsible for filling the script (with the suppliers you have already selected) and ensuring that your wedding runs smoothly. A master of ceremonies ensures that you and your family and friends can fully enjoy the wedding, while taking care that the guests are well received, the catering is ready on time, everyone is seated according to the seating arrangement and much more! So a master of ceremonies is really indispensable on your big day! You can read all master of ceremonies duties below.
