Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, Event Expert and Owner of Events By Fabulous. Today, I'm going to give you a few tips on how to emcee a 50th wedding anniversary. So, you've been chosen by your friends or family to be the master of ceremonies; congratulations! It's quite a job, but that must mean they think you're really special. I'm going to give you a couple of tricks to get you through the night to make sure you're really a rock star emcee. Step one, you definitely want to prepare, prepare, prepare. Make sure to set a meeting with the anniversary couple or the hosts, which are usually the children and plan out the entire run of show. Create a detailed schedule for every event that will happen throughout the night, who will be involved and what kind of announcements are necessary. Next, you want to make sure to actually get to the event way, way, way before on the night of to make sure you have plenty of time and make sure everything is running smoothly. You want to check to make sure the microphone is working. You also want to get acquainted with the room, where the anniversary couple will be sitting and where the band will be sitting. And next, make sure to actually have a printed schedule with you on the night of the event, and you can keep that in your jacket pocket or your purse. And you want to just run through that schedule, item by item, and make sure you make all the proper announcements and keep the party running smoothly. Now, it's a great idea to even have a highlighter or a pen with you so you can mark off the events as they actually occur. And last but certainly not the least, while you want to be entertaining, you are not the main entertainment. Remember to keep the spotlight on the anniversary couple. Keep all of your announcements and remarks short and sweet and that will make for the happiest of audiences. Happy anniversary.
