When it comes to weddings, there is a lot to consider. You need to think about the size of your wedding, along with who you will invite. You’ll need to find a venue that you like and will hold all your guests too. A theme for your wedding or special colours will need to be thought about too – and that’s just the start of it.

Planning your own wedding can quickly become overwhelming and daunting as there is so much to think about. This is where our wedding planning service can help. We can help you through every step.

In this blog post we look at the role of a toastmaster and if you need one at your wedding. You may think it’s an extra cost, or a friend at your wedding can do it, but there may be another option too.

A toastmaster is someone that formalises the key moments of the day. They will announce the bride and groom, inform guests of the cake cutting, photos, first dance, speeches, meal times and more. Generally speaking, a toastmaster will ensure that all the right people are in the right place at the right time. If you have a formal or traditional style to your wedding, a toastmaster can really help set the scene and create the right atmosphere for you.

It is possible to ask a friend or a selection of friends to be your informal toastmasters. This is a nice way of involving your friends in your special day. You could give a friend or a group of friends the instructions for which announcements are needed and at what times. The only issue with this is that you are relying on friends to remember. Some friends might panic under the pressure, meanwhile other times could be missed as drinks are being enjoyed. If you are relying on friends for announcements, then why not use our ‘On The Day Planner’ services. We can ensure your friends are ready for the announcements when they need to be made.

Another option for a friendlier and less formal approach than a toastmaster in all their finery, is us! We can ensure that your day runs smoothly and without a hitch. You tell us the theme and colour schemes and we can dress accordingly. Our wedding planners will be your right-hand team, there for you, whatever you might need.
