A Wedding MC's Timeline of Events.
Tips from Sydney's ABIA Award Winning MC
The ABIA recently had the opportunity to speak with the Award Winning MC (2017) to discuss the MC timeline of events leading up to one's wedding day. With Joseph Dimento – Professional Wedding MC's experience in servicing 400+ weddings, he is the Wedding MC Genius who will help you get your wedding reception prepared.
Joseph Dimento’s timeline of events leading up to the wedding:
1. Book Early
Most MC’s are booking weddings at least 1 year in advance. If you want a particular Wedding MC, book them as soon as you have secured the wedding venue.
2. First Meeting
I like to meet couples early on. This acts as an ice-breaker but also to calm their nerves so that they know exactly what I will be doing for them leading up to the big day and on the night.
3. Your Run Sheet
The run sheet is one of the most important factors at a wedding. This determines what type of night you and your guests will have. I like to meet up again with the couples after they have locked in their menu with the venues. Then I can personally design their run sheet to suit them and their event. Not all weddings are the same so each run sheet needs to be tailored to each couple.
4. Working with your Wedding Crew
After the run sheet is complete, an email is sent to all the crew on the night (wedding photographers, wedding videographers, wedding venues, wedding djs etc.) in this email we attach the approved run sheet as well as my details. I advise them that if they have any questions leading up to the day or any problems regarding bumping in at the venue to contact me – especially on the day – as the couples only job is to be happy and smile.
