How to MC a Wedding
"One of the most important roles you can play at another person's wedding is the Master of Ceremonies (MC). The MC's job is to make sure the evening goes as smoothly as possible, taking the pressure off the happy couple and allowing them to forget about the practical concerns of the event and focus on having a good time. It can be a little intimidating to try to get organized, but you can learn the role and nail the tone to make their wedding a great success."

Ceremony Start Time
If you are aware that guests will likely be late, then make sure on the invitation says 15 minutes earlier than the actual ceremony start time.
When guests are late and if you delay the starting time, then there may be less time afterwards for photos, etc.
For example, if you want to begin your ceremony at 2:00 PM, then put on your wedding invitation for 1:45 PM.
Making it 30 minutes earlier may sound better, but you do not want people standing outside if the doors are locked!

- In a few sentences, talk about your love and promises made and offered to your spouse.
- Write about one thing that you will always remember between the two of you.
- Keep thoughts concise and within a page of writing, typically within 500 words.
- Writing long stories may be interesting but you want to keep the audience involved.
- You can expand on vows with more thoughts, if there is a reception speech afterwards.
