The book is written by Tom Haibeck, a Canadian who has made speeches at hundreds of weddings over the past 20 years. He wrote the book by 'popular demand' when he kept on being asked to emcee weddings because he was good at it - and he realised that there was a lack of information on the topic to guide others.
Here are some readers' comments from the
wedding toasts web site.
"This book is perfect for the nervous emcee. It gives him or her the know-how and confidence to make the wedding reception enjoyable for everyone." (Best Man)
"Thank heaven for The Wedding MC. I - who hate standing up before a crowd - was emcee at my nephew's wedding recently, and your book not only made it all bearable, but it also made me look good."
