We’re having a DIY venue... is a toast master worth the extra money or not?
We're not having one. We are planning on leaving a list with the day's proposed timetable on everyone's seat at the registry office. Then it will be up the the best man and ushers to help keep things run smoothly.
Hi I am not having one :)
We got one with our catering company at no extra cost. Hadn't even thought about it really but I have to say on the day he was brilliant and everyone commented on the little extras he provided! X
I wouldn't say so. It's a nice to have but it's mostly to make sure things are running smoothly. If you're worried about timings then maybe, but otherwise the wedding party can sort it.
Depends on cost. But sounds good if you can afford it
We didn't have one and everything was fine! We just had an A-board at the venue with the days schedule so guests knew what was happening when.
No, we got my husbands son to just get people in line and where they should be, he loved it! and didnt cost £400!!xx
We cancelled ours. Think as a rule of thumb it's recommended for over 60 guests. All went fine on the day
It might be nice to ask a friend to do it maybe someone who didn't quite make it into the official wedding party?
I recently went to a wedding were they didn't have one. But the farther of the groom sort of done it. Think he enjoyed rounding people up an announcing the bride and groom (his son an daughter in law). He's a very humorous man an was in the spirit of how there family are. With it being his sons wedding there was definitely pride in doing a job of importantance 🙂 so how about a family member such as the grooms farther or someone who's in that roll?
We’ve asked a close friend to do it for us on the day as he has a great sense of humour and we want our friends to be involved as much as possible
Why not have a family member or friend do it. We're having the choir I help run sing and I do want them announced so we're asking the best man to be a sort of one.
I have asked my cousins to do it for me
