How I may help you?

I’m often asked what a toastmaster does on a wedding day and I’ve outlined some of the duties I’m happy to perform below.

These duties may not be listed anywhere else and may vary from what other Toastmasters may offer you.  This is by no means a complete or comprehensive list of my duties and if you want something different, I shall be really pleased to make sure that you get what you want on your special day.

I will be pleased to carry out any duties and deal with any other issues as they arise in a calm, friendly and courteous manner and with a smile.  Whatever I do as your toastmaster, I believe that your wishes and expectations should be exceeded.

Some things that I’ve found that have pleased other brides and grooms are listed here as a guide, but please remember that I will do anything possible to make your day!

For your wedding ceremony or service

Attending the venue where your wedding ceremony is being held, even if this is a different venue or in a different town to where your reception is being held.

Arriving early to liaise with your venue, (before your wedding party and guests arrive) and to make sure that all of your wishes have been realised and that everything is in order.

Helping your photographer and videographer throughout the day as and when needed.  This generally also means making sure that your photographer and videographer know what is going to happen so that they are in the right places before anything starts and ensuring that they capture every facet of your day perfectly.

Greeting your wedding party and guests and making them feel welcome and comfortable.

Helping with any details of final dress, which may include tying ties and or cravats and putting on buttonholes and corsages.

Putting your wedding party and guests at ease and to helping to calm any last minute nerves.

Dealing with cards and presents as they arrive and letting your guests know if you have special arrangements for gifts and cards.

Making sure that the bridegroom is in all the right places at the right times and that your guests are also looked after and know what is happening and where they need to be.

Acting as an escort when appropriate.

And above all making sure that when you arrive, you are greeted and made to feel comfortable and reassured.

At your wedding reception

Helping with bouquets, flowers, bride’s dress and anything else that needs attention.

Generally help by moving your wedding party and guests into the right places at the right times for photographs, wedding breakfast, entertainment or other events.

Looking after any guests with special needs whether it’s an elderly guest or those with mobility problems.

Making sure that you have drinks and canapés at appropriate times and looking after you both when you are having your photographs taken.

Making sure that all your needs are catered for and that you are comfortable at all times.

Organising your receiving line so that everyone is in the right place at the right time without being made to feel rushed or pressured.

Making appropriate announcements as and when necessary.

Announcing the bride and bridegroom into the room for your wedding breakfast.

Making sure that your guest book is signed by all of your guests.

Helping with the arrangements for your meal, if you are having a buffet and need your guests to go to the table in a particular order.  Carrying your food from the buffet, so that you are treated specially, and so that no food will get on your wedding dress.

Checking that the gifts and flowers to be given out during your speeches, are in the right place for you.

Announcing your speakers in the agreed order.

Making sure that if a public address system is being used, it is working and ready for use and that the speakers are comfortable with how it works.

Announcing and organising the cutting of the wedding cake.

Making sure that you are announced out of your banqueting room in the way that best suits you, if your room is being turned round for your evening function or if you are moving to another location for your evening party.

If you would like me to stay to announce your first dance, or organise your guests for your evening fireworks, I would be pleased to do so, but depending on timings, this may be at an additional cost.

I am really happy to do all that I can to make sure that you get an absolutely amazing and memorable day.
