2. About our Service Inclusions and why we do it

The job of a premium wedding MC is one of the highest pressure roles in a wedding event. The minimum requirement of the job is to create great atmosphere and speak fluent Chinese and English. However, there is a lot more to the job...

(a) Professional Cantonese, Mandarin and English wedding hosting

All our professional senior wedding MCs are from a radio or stage background who are highly talented in their own languages. In particular, our senior Chinese English wedding MC Sy Chung has been a radio host with SBS Radio/TV for 10 years.

By speaking in Cantonese, Mandarin and English on your wedding day, we will ensure that all your guests are comfortable and feel welcome. We will create great atmosphere, whether you want your wedding to be stylish and personal, or more like a big party.

As professionals MCs, we will make sure that all the attention goes to you, the bride and groom and other people who are honoured on the night and never ourselves, as many amateur MCs tend to do. There will be no embarrassing stories and our job is to make you look good. We also have a zero-alcohol policy.


(b) Wedding Planning Meeting and Runsheet Drafting

Event Weddings is born from a media/staging background with 10 years of experience at SBS Radio/TV. We have received professional training to an international standard in event planning and production. We understand the science behind putting together a great event. We understand that proper planning for the event and having the right rundown formula is paramount in creating your perfect wedding day.

When you go to a wedding venue or go online, you will certainly find sample runsheets for your wedding. However through hosting hundreds of weddings, we have identified 25 different kinds of Chinese weddings, all of which require a different runsheet.

In our initial meeting, we will get to know you and run a 20 point checklist to find out which wedding programme suits you the best. We learn something new at every wedding, and we continuously update these runsheets and create new ones.

When helping you plan your wedding event, we specialise in the following:
   ●   Taking care of Chinese cultural elements to your wedding
   ●   Adjusting runsheets to cater for specifics of each venue (serving speed, parking etc)
   ●   Strategies to ensure your guests arrive on time particularly in larger weddings
   ●   Strategies to protect the groom during wine toasting
   ●   Managing complicated family situations
   ●   Strategies to help guests stay until the end
   ●   Strategies to maximise guest cooperation and participation
   ●   Managing audience mood flow


(c) Service coordination on your wedding day

A premium wedding MC service is not just getting up and introducing what is happening next. Your wedding MC fulfills the role of your wedding coordinator on your wedding day. This role is distinct from the "wedding coordinator" included with your venue package who is mainly in charge of ensuring the delivery of food service.

In many weddings where amateur MCs or lower-tier MCs are used, the bride need to tap him on the shoulder to let him know what he needs to do, and these MCs also often start programmes without informing other services particularly photographers and videographers, and as a result important shots are missed.

Event Weddings MCs have taken their stage experience skills in major events such as concerts held at the Entertainment Centre and other large scale events with over 50,000 attendance to your wedding day. We will put you at ease and help you take care of all your wedding suppliers and coordinate all timings with the venue to make sure all your services work well together and on time. We will also help you coordinate everyone who is involved with your wedding party such as parents, bridal party and family members.

Before the start of the event, we will arrive 1-2 hours early to check all your services to make sure that everything is available. As wedding planners, these 1-2 hours gives us enough time to help you make corrections. For example in the past we have helped with undelivered cakes, wrongly spelt names on computer presentations and bringing in a AV and technical team within an hour.

A perfect wedding day is not necessary one where everything goes to plan. It is a fact that no event ever goes exactly to plan and changes are always made on the day, and the decisions you make affect the quality of the event. Our experience helps us make better decisions, and when an experienced team makes a decision on the day, your guests won't notice.
