I've been given the honour/poison chalice of MC-ing a friends wedding, while i'm at ease speaking in public, this is something i've never encountered before. Will be around 150 there but will only know around 30 of them.
Just seeking some advice/experiences/tips on how to go about the role, the format and connecting to the people i'm not familiar with there.
Possibly a corny joke as an ice breaker? How's this....
A mushroom walks into a bar & asks for a beer
The bartender replies 'I can't serve you, sir'
The mushroom replies 'Why not? I'm a fun guy (funghi)'
At least if it crashes and burns the only way is up!
I realise the wedding is not about me, but weddings with good MC's are usually more fun, and i suspect they have picked me as i'm the more flamboyant member of the group.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
