Remember the M.C.’s Set the Mood !

3 Types Of Wedding Reception M.C.’s and the Way I See It :
These days your Wedding Ceremony can take you to all kinds of wonderful
and exotic locations. The Ceremony Vows can be done wherever the Wedding
Planning is decided upon. Be it a Civil Ceremony or Traditional Wedding.
Reverend Stephen Ongo founder of speaks freely.

Then comes the Reception a time almost everyone has been waiting for
a time of fun ,dancing and drinking. But chose your M.C.’s well they can
set the mood for the evening or put a bad taste in the mouths of family and

I will classify at least the 3 that stand out to me.

Just for Fun I have tagged them so you can see the personality types :
1# The Happy Rambler
The Happy Rambler is the M.C. that was chosen because he is not
shy to talk publicly. He can talk to anyone about anything and someone
said I think I will ask him to be my M.C. The only thing they may not
have anticipated is when he gets nervous he “Rambles”.
He talks and talks about irrelvant stuff unprepared for the occasion
and after awhile your guests and family soon lose interest.
The way I see it is have someone in the family (not yourself)
kind of subtley screen what your M.C. will be talking about
and where he will be going with his material and give him a time limit.

2# The Loosey Goosey
The Loosey Goosey has been drinking a little too much before your
Ceremony perhaps thinking it will relax him/her to do the M.C.’s job.
But what it has done in essence is that it has removed all inhibitions.
Anything goes now bad jokes,off colour humour,sexist remarks.
This can quickly create a very uncomfortable atmosphere among
your guests and family not knowing why this guy/gal is up there “Ruining
Your Special Day”.
The way I see it is set the standards high for your M.C. tell him/her the mood
you want him to create be it a “Fun Laughing Time or Sentimental Loving
Time” and do not allow drinking for him/ her until after their job as M.C.

3# The Inside Man
The Inside Man or Woman has been chosen as M.C. because they have
the “Goods on the Bride or Groom” know all the little secrets and embarassing
moments in their lives. And now they have a chance to exploit them as the M.C.
Some of this can be tastefully done and in good humour but some of the
“Inside Stuff” is better left alone. There is no humour when the “Inside Jokes”
are only between the M.C. and the Bride or Groom and not fully explained.
The way I see it the M.C. should only sprinkle us with fully explained embarassing
moments and not make a full “Stand-Up Routine of Inside Jokes” only they get.
Once again have a trusted friend review the material of your M.C. tell him/her what is acceptable and what is not. aiht4q5gcj

So have a Reception filled with “Love, Fun and Dreams Coming True”.

Dealing With Stress On Your Special Day !

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Don’t Stress Me Out ! !
Don’t Stress Me Out !! It’s my Wedding Ceremony ! A transformation comes
upon what once a very nice, sweet girl into a demanding, mean spirited
spoiled little brat ! ! What’s all that about ? It’s called the approaching Wedding Day !
It doesn’t matter much if the Ceremony Vows and all the Wedding Planning
are in order. The Wedding Day brings a visitor called “Stress”.
Reverend Stephen Ongo founder of speaks freely.

Their was a radio show that had a little bit entitled “The Call Of The Day “.
What they would do is someone would call into the station with a real life
scenario of say a good friend of theirs is getting married and they have booked
their hall at such and such and they are very stressed that everything just goes right.
Now the D.J. would call up the bride to be and tell her that they are the
management of the Hall they had just booked and unfortunately they have
overbooked for your day and we are unable to honour your booking.

Now this whole telephone conversation is being aired on live radio and
whoever is listening to that station is hearing a bride to be absolutely lose it.
If it wasn’t so tragic it would be funny. She has sent out all the invitations
by now, the call comes in maybe on a Tuesday or Wednesday and the
Wedding is on Saturday. There is absolutely no time to find another place
or even inform the 100 or more guests of the change. This is Stress at it’s MAX ! ! gy39ac74uw

This changes nice girls into another kind of creature. One you do not want
to be 100 yards from. Of course you can know some explicits are filling the
airwaves, some tears, alot of anger, some tantrums and a whole gamutt of
other emotions. Do you think this would be a good time to tell her that this
was only a joke played on you by your best friend. And that you are on the
radio to boot so all your friends know what you are really like under the gun.

Stress is not your enemy. To all the Brides to be it can either make you
or break you . You can come up like a shinning penny and actually be the
best you have ever been or let it turn you into a tyrant nobody wants to be around.
Stress is natures way of putting the pressure on you to let you know what
needs to be done and do it or get someone else to. Stress is not your
enemy or an excuse to take some drugs. Stress does not give you licence
to be rude, mean spirited or hurt or offend the ones you love. It has a
purpose and you should recognize that purpose and use it. Don’t let it
control your personality to the point people say she’s a nice person but
don’t get her stressed.
My exhortation to the Brides to be;” Don’t let Stress Change you
because it’s inevitable it will visit your Wedding. Use it work with it .
Stress can get alot of good and necessary things done for
Your Special Day so don’t treat it like an unwelcomed enemy.
