A sample emcee script is a template script used by an emcee to alert guests of the order of activities in a wedding, party or event. The purpose of the emcee is to get guests excited and to help build anticipation for various parts of an event.
At a wedding, the emcee will generally be used for the reception after the wedding. The emcee will let guests know that it is time for cocktail hour, where the guests need to go to get to the reception and will begin introducing the wedding party. The emcee will generally introduce the parents of both the bride and groom first with the party following. The bride and groom are usually introduced last. The emcee will let everyone know when it is time to dance, when it is time to cut the cake and when it is time to eat dinner, if dinner is being served. The emcee can help introduce the various toasts and will often remain the focal point throughout the entire wedding reception. The emcee will know how to keep the guests entertained and captivated without going overboard or overpowering the event.
