Why A Magic Wedding Emcee Is The Perfect Host For Your Big Day

Why A Magic Wedding Emcee Is The Perfect Host For Your Big Day

If your wedding day is approaching, you have lots of preparations to make. If you don’t have someone reliable to help you manage your guests on your special day, you run the risk of things going awry. You want your visitors to be entertained as well as properly guided throughout the entire function.

When it comes to managing the guests on your big day, no one can do it better than a magic wedding emcee. You might be wondering what a magic wedding emcee is, and why they would be the perfect host for your big day? You cannot just hire anyone to be your wedding host – it is a job that requires practice and skill. Read on to find out why a magic wedding emcee like Chris Fleming is the perfect choice for your celebration.

What Is A Magic Wedding Emcee?

If you have never heard of a magic wedding emcee (aka MC/Master Of Ceremonies), you are probably feeling confused about their role in your wedding. In simple words, a magic wedding emcee is the host of a wedding, who also performs magic to keep your guests entertained.

Still confused? Then let’s consider the traditional role of a wedding toastmaster. Throughout the wedding, there will be many moments when announcements must be made – the grand entrance, speeches, first dance, and so on. Guests must be guided to their respective places, and attendees need to be informed of what will take place next in the wedding ceremony.

A wedding emcee makes sure that everything is running smoothly and on schedule. A family member, friend, or traditional toastmaster often plays the role of emcee.
A magic wedding emcee carries out all the above responsibilities, but that’s not all. In addition, he makes sure the guests at the wedding are constantly entertained. A magic emcee will perform various acts of mind-reading and magic that will keep your guests in awe.

Why Not Just Choose A Traditional Wedding Host?

Your wedding day is the most special day of your life. You want to make it memorable – not only for you and your partner but also for your guests. When it comes to choosing a wedding host, you have a few choices. You may already have people you feel you can rely on to fulfil this role. So, why should you hire a magic wedding emcee for your wedding instead?

Before considering your reasons for choosing a magic wedding emcee for your wedding, let us consider the traditional choices you have so that you can compare the services of a magic emcee with them.

A Traditional Wedding Toastmaster

A wedding toastmaster can professionally handle the hosting of a wedding. They have a deep knowledge of wedding traditions, ceremonial proceedings, and protocols. But let’s be honest. A traditional toastmaster can also put your guests to sleep.

If you want a formal wedding, then a toastmaster is your guy. However, if you want your wedding to be fun and memorable for the right reasons, you have to arrange the best kind of entertainment for guests of all ages. A professional toastmaster won’t perform magic, or amuse your guests in any other way.

An Emcee Provided by The Wedding Venue

If you have no one to host your wedding, your venue provider will likely choose the manager or a staff member to take on this role. However, the priority of the venue staff members is simply to make sure all the guests are seated in the correct place and that everyone is properly fed. The nuances of your wedding preferences are the last thing on their minds – they’re far too busy ensuring that the food comes out on time.

Moreover, they may not have had any interaction with you before the wedding day. The staff member may not even know your name, let alone the names of your guests. Plus the venue staff member definitely would not be entertaining your guests like a professional magic emcee would.

A Family Member Or Friend

Of course, you could choose one of your family members or friends to host your wedding. But are you sure they want to perform their duty? Emceeing at a wedding event is not a simple task. The host has a lot of duties to fulfil. Your family members and friends also want to enjoy your wedding and spend happy moments with you.

If one of your dearest acquaintances volunteers to be the host, that is fine if they have previous experience. However, they are probably not professional emcees. So, there is a high chance they may get nervous while hosting the occasion. Plus, they may not have the skills to keep the guests entertained for hours.

So, Why A Magic Wedding Emcee?

Considering all the options outlined above, a magic wedding emcee should be your first choice. Chris is adept at performing all the duties of a traditional toastmaster, in a more fun and entertaining manner.

Chris will take on all the responsibility of managing your guests. During lulls or other quiet moments of the event, Chris will also perform magic tricks designed to break the ice between your guests and keep them laughing.

Therefore, you do not have to worry about how your guests are feeling at your wedding. You and your partner can relax and enjoy your big day with your loved ones knowing that the day is in Chris’ capable hands.
