Toastmasters - Keeping Your Day on Track

Whatever the style of your wedding and no matter how many guests you are inviting, you will want it to be well organised and anxiety- free. Employing the services of a toastmaster means you can relax and enjoy your special day, knowing that someone will have a keen eye of the detail of each procedure and event.

What will they do for me?

Most of their activities go unobserved. For example, you notice that the children are settled and occupied, the catering staff have cleared the dishes, the music has stopped and the guests’ glasses are filled. Then, in true wedding fashion, you hear the bang of a gavel and the loud voice of the toastmaster announcing the commencement of the speeches. It all seems to be organised so effortlessly but it is the toastmaster’s doing!

The qualities of a toastmaster

Toastmasters are experts in etiquette. They will add dignity and a ‘touch of class,’ to your wedding.

They will guarantee your wedding will run smoothly and are adept at dealing with unforeseen circumstances. They will also give a gentle, guiding hand to anyone who displays bad behaviour!

They will offer pre-wedding advice on services, procedures and speeches. They can even liaise with suppliers, if necessary.

A toastmaster will see that all your instructions are carried out, with a final check at your venue before you arrive.

They will organise and announce each guest at the receiving line, announce the bride and groom, the speeches, the cutting of the cake, the first dance and they will even tell your guests when to applaud!

They sound pretty amazing, right?
