What does a Professional Toastmaster Do ?

Just what does a Toastmaster Do?

The majority of good venues will agree that to guarantee a fun and successful wedding it is really important to have someone at the event who will ensure that:

  • The venue duty manager has a point of contact to direct Bridal Party and supplier activities
  • Registrars are happy
  • Everyone knows where they should be, when they should be there and what they need to do
  • Everyone is in the right place at the right time
  • The Wedding runs to time
  • The photographer is supported when trying to ‘gather’ family, friends and guests for the group photographs
  • Any surprises or unexpected occurrences are managed without a fuss
  • Everyone, including those making any speeches, remain relaxed, ready and really enjoy themselves throughout the day

It is a real bonus if the Best Man, Maid of Honour, Ushers, Groomsmen, Bridesmaids or even the venue’s Duty Manager has time to:

  • Liaise with the Registrar team
  • ‘Round up’ guests for photographs
  • Organise a receiving line
  • Manage any unexpected surprises or make announcements
  • Ensure everything runs to schedule
  • Liaise with the venue and suppliers
  • Introduce the speeches

A Toastmaster is trained to demonstrate a quiet confidence and to manage all these activities, and many more. Their mission is to ensure the Bridal Party, or event organiser and their guests have a memorable, enjoyable and stress-free day.

A Toastmaster’s services should not be seen as ‘another expense’. They should really be recognised as an investment that will ensure a Bride’s wedding or event organiser’s plans become a fun based reality.
