Toastmaster vs. MC - what's the difference?

Many venues offer couples and MC service. However, there is confusion over the difference between this and hiring a professional toastmaster. Dan Hale, Toastmaster Dan, tells us more.

Toastmaster vs. MC - what's the difference?: Image 1 Credit: www.reportography.comThe terms master of ceremonies and toastmaster are often used interchangeably but there are some important differences. An MC is generally less formal and more relaxed, so may not wear the traditional red coat and white gloves, use a gavel or make announcements to the same level of etiquette. For example, when asking for a round of applause a toastmaster is likely to say “please show your appreciation for” whilst an MC may say “give it up for” or “a round of applause for.” 

Throughout your day there will be times when tradition and etiquette are important, such as announcing toasts and speeches, and others where you want less formality, like cutting the cake or announcing your band. A professional toastmaster will work with you to understand your requirements, give advice and guidance on tradition and etiquette, and then tailor their tone and style to suit your requirements.
