The voice and com­pass of your wed­ding is the wed­ding host. It is the host who will help to real­ize the sce­nario of any wed­ding. In this arti­cle, Chan­fash­ion answered the ques­tions you are ask­ing your­self. You will find out how the host dif­fers from the toast­mas­ter and which one to choose. Let’s talk about the prices of wed­ding hosts. We also com­piled five points that reveal what the wed­ding host does. The wed­ding script will no longer be a secret. At the end of the arti­cle, you will learn how to choose your pro­fes­sion­al. Or pro­fes­sion­al 😉

The wed­ding host must match the style of the event. A pro­fes­sion­al will empha­size the idea of ​​the wed­ding and adjust to the age and inter­ests of the guests.

Host or toastmaster at a wedding?

There is a dif­fer­ence between the toast­mas­ter and the leader, and it is colos­sal. Let’s dig a lit­tle into the his­to­ry and deal with the shades of mean­ing.

Word “thereisland” came from Geor­gia, where it was cus­tom­ary to cel­e­brate the wed­ding with a whole vil­lage. The leader was appoint­ed the most respect­ed per­son in the vil­lage. Usu­al­ly a man. At that time, they didn’t even think about any con­tests and vul­gar rhymes. The toast­mas­ter had to make beau­ti­ful toasts and, in a cer­tain order, grant this right to oth­ers.

Now the idea of ​​toast­mas­ter has changed for the worse. The mod­ern toast­mas­ter is rather a jester, with a whole car­riage of ridicu­lous jokes and anec­dotes. It all start­ed in the Sovi­et era, when col­lo­qui­al artists appeared. They enter­tained the audi­ence from the stage, and lat­er migrat­ed to closed hol­i­days. With a toast­mas­ter, a wed­ding can­not be com­plete with­out a group of dis­guised men danc­ing Swan Lake. We hope that this wed­ding for­mat is not for you.

Leading the wedding

A neat­ly dressed guy or girl with a trained voice and a sub­tle sense of humor. He is lis­tened to and respect­ed. A wed­ding host is an author­i­ta­tive per­son who, with­out vul­gar­i­ty and stu­pid­i­ty, fills in awk­ward paus­es and con­ducts a pro­gram. He com­mu­ni­cates with guests eas­i­ly and unob­tru­sive­ly.

Often, new­ly­weds mean a mod­ern pre­sen­ter, and on the Inter­net they are look­ing for a toast­mas­ter. Because it’s more famil­iar this way, rel­a­tives, neigh­bors on the land­ing or col­leagues express it this way. To decide if you need a wed­ding host, let’s first under­stand what he does.

The best wedding host

How does a wedding planner work? 5 critical stages

1. Preparing the script.

The host takes into account the style of the hol­i­day and your per­son­al wish­es: which of the guests do you want to give the first word of con­grat­u­la­tions to, what con­tests do you want and what do you absolute­ly not want. He will weigh every­thing and cre­ate a unique sce­nario for the wed­ding.

2. Timing.

Plan­ning, that is, the order dur­ing the wed­ding day. Events won’t over­lap, guests won’t go hun­gry, kids won’t get lost. The host will make sure that no one is late any­where, and that the com­pe­ti­tions start on time.

3. Coordination and interaction with contractors.

If there is no wed­ding coor­di­na­tor at the wed­ding, the host per­forms his func­tions. He works with the restau­rant staff, musi­cians, DJ, artists. That is, announces the serv­ing of dish­es and per­for­mances.

4. Meeting guests and getting to know the wedding venue.

The host will help the guests to relax and reduce the orga­ni­za­tion­al fuss to a min­i­mum.

5. The holiday program itself.

Table and enter­tain­ment part. Some­times the host under­takes to con­duct an out­door cer­e­mo­ny. Before agree­ing, Chan­fash­ion advis­es to make sure that he has enough expe­ri­ence for this.

A good leader knows how to impro­vise. He will be able to lead peo­ple in the right direc­tion or smooth out an unfor­tu­nate sit­u­a­tion.

  • AT cat­a­log Chan­fash­ion there is a sec­tion Lead­ingthere you can view port­fo­lio. Under­stand how the host works at wed­dings. That’s the only way to know if it’s inter­est­ing or not.
  • Select a few can­di­dates appoint per­son­al meet­ing. There are con­tact infor­ma­tion on the lead­er’s pages. In live com­mu­ni­ca­tion, it is clear whether a per­son is pleas­ant, whether you like his voice and man­ner of jok­ing. If dur­ing the meet­ing some­thing caus­es embar­rass­ment or dis­com­fort, refuse this option.
  • Dis­cuss sce­nario. Tell us where and in what style the wed­ding will take place. Ask the wed­ding host to sug­gest their enter­tain­ment options. It will be a rough draft, but his spon­ta­neous ideas will allow you to eval­u­ate the cre­ative poten­tial of the can­di­date. Feel free to make adjust­ments and ask for details. It’s your hol­i­day, sort things out and feel con­fi­dent.
  • If what you see and hear caus­es enthu­si­asm and a sense of antic­i­pa­tion, con­grat­u­la­tions — you have found your option! Sign an agree­ment and make an advance pay­ment. Approve a spe­cial­ist on the sitefor the deal to be safe. And so you get a row bonus­es.

Don’t hes­i­tate to find a spe­cial­ist. Good pre­sen­ters are booked months in advance.

Two hosts for the wedding

How much does a wedding host cost?

Prices start from 3000–4000 thou­sand hryv­nia and depend on the dura­tion of the hol­i­day. Expe­ri­enced hosts with good reviews are more expen­sive.

Unbe­liev­able, but true: in small towns, order­ing a wed­ding host is cheap­er than in Kyiv or Odessa.

In sum­mer, prices are an order of mag­ni­tude high­er, and from Octo­ber they grad­u­al­ly decrease by about 30%.

Leader or presenter?

The lead­ers are usu­al­ly guys. But girls are fun­ny and col­or­ful no less than men. If a girl is lead­ing a wed­ding, she will have one of two styles of behav­ior:

  1. In the image of “own on the board” — active, assertive, com­mu­ni­cates with­out embar­rass­ment, imme­di­ate­ly makes friends with guests. She will laugh con­ta­gious­ly and amuse even the most mod­est guests.
  2. In the image of a sophis­ti­cat­ed intel­lec­tu­al. Restrained, but dynam­ic, keeps a dis­tance from guests, demon­strates excel­lent taste and good man­ners. She reminds me of Jen­nifer Lopez in The Wed­ding Plan­ner. It may well become a mas­ter of cer­e­monies.

A tandem of a boy and a girl.

From the point of view of psy­chol­o­gy, the most advan­ta­geous option. Note that at the Oscars and Euro­vi­sion there are two pre­sen­ters on the stage: a man and a woman. They com­mu­ni­cate, joke and look more inter­est­ing. Guests can take a break from one host, switch­ing their atten­tion to anoth­er. There­fore, if the bud­get allows, be sure to con­sid­er this idea.

Remem­ber: the host is the face and voice at the wed­ding! Choose it, clear­ly under­stand­ing what you are wait­ing for.
