I got a whatsapp from a friend:
“Tish, I’m going to MC my cousin’s wedding in 10 mins. Can you send me a programme line up? Just want to be sure of the order”
Me: What!? 😯
Me: OK. Hold on. (*thinking but what madness is this*)
How do you have a reception and not have a programme?
Don’t be my friend (or her cousin).
Below is a suggested order for your wedding reception programme.
You can decide to do everything as is but know everything is definitely not compulsory. You can edit and amend to suit if you have additional toasts, eliminate the parent dances and bouquet/garter “drama” if you wish. You may also choose to go straight to dinner after your entrance and do your toasts after. It’s all up to you. This is the part where we remind you it’s all about you and what you want to happen.
Whatever order you choose…..
Advice: Go through your reception programme with your coordinator to discuss the flow that works best for you. No coordinator? – sigh – then ensure you go through the final programme with your MC/Host before hand, even if it’s a family member! No winging it!
More advice: Ask us to help you set this up if you’re not sure. We offer this as part of our coordination services or during our one-on-one consultations. You can get more info here. We will help you decide who speaks when, how long they should speak for and ensure they don’t cut into your dancing time (amongst everything else!)
This is just one of the many things on your to do list that your coordinator will help you check off. Not sure how a coordinator works?
