The key role of a indian wedding toastmaster is being the eyes, ears and voice of the bride and groom. “What do you mean, eyes and ears?” As the bride and groom start to enjoy their wedding day, they every now and then accidentally start to stop thinking about that specific things have to be ready.
A case in point, if the bride and groom are in the church getting married, the toastmaster will be at the venue well in advance of any of the guests, making absolutely sure that the setting is all set. The cloak rooms are open, the red carpet is out, champagne is being chilled, canopies are ready, the table plan in place and all the place cards in the right places and all of the venue is primed to entertain the recently married couple.
The toastmaster will welcome the bride and groom on their arrival and advise the guests where the cloak rooms and toilets are and where the wedding breakfast will be, as well as other amenities within the setting. The toastmaster could conduct a receiving line where he proclaims the names of the guests to the bride and groom and their parents.
Throughout the wedding reception itself, the toastmaster will be assisting the photographer in locating the people to compose the set piece shots. Once any official wedding photography is complete, the toastmaster will direct the guests in to be seated for the wedding breakfast. When the bride and groom are primed to go into the dining room, the toastmaster will make known to the guests to stand up, give a standing ovation and cheer the recently married couple and lead them to the top table.
The wedding breakfast is generally undisturbed until the end, when we have the speeches. The toastmaster introduces each one of the speakers. The conventional lineup for the speeches is Father of the Bride, then the Groom, and last, but no way least, is the Best Man.
Following the speeches, if the toastmaster’s duties are to go on, they would then observe the cutting of the wedding cake. The toastmaster would introduce that, making sure that the guests can obtain their photographs of the newly weds cutting the cake. That will be followed by the First Dance.
These days the bride and groom are expected to perform, a little bit similar to strictly come dancing. Making their first dance more of a performance and unforgettable for their guests. You only need view YouTube! Only when the guests have joined them on the dance floor, can the toastmaster sense that their job is finished. On occasions, the toastmaster is asked to remain later in the evening for such happenings as a firework display. Here they would ask all the guests to make their way outside, but not necessarily telling the grounds why. The bride and groom’s surprise!
The duties of a wedding toastmaster are two fold. Firstly, to ensure that the wedding runs smoothly and to a predetermined format, and secondly, that the bride and groom have nothing remotely to worry about.
Employing a toastmaster for your event or party, whether that be a wedding or banquet, not only ensures that it will smoothly and to plan, but also adds some refinement. This is due to the toastmaster’s uniform, the red tail coat, white waistcoat and starched white shirt with bow tie.
The toastmaster is there, not simply to be an authoritative figure, but also as a personable face for the guests to go and inquire where things are or what is occurring next. Also, whatever the wedding, whether it be a Christian wedding, a Hindu wedding, Muslim or Jewish wedding, the toastmaster would understand equally the protocol and traditions of that certain wedding. So the draw is reassurance and refinement.
