    We had asked our mutual friends to be our MC's (they're a married couple, they introduced and helped us get together). About 3 mths ago they seperated. Anytime we've brought up the wedding and their plans, they haven't been able to tell us whether one/both/none plan on going. With our wedding creeping up in just over 2 months I'm wondering what I should do?

    If I need to find another MC, I would like to give them a little of bit a heads up before we leave. Do I even need a MC for a destination wedding??

    I'd love to hear any thoughts you might have.

      Tough situation...but you really need to find out what their plans are so that you can move ahead or move on.

      Whether or not to have an MC really depends on you and how you have your wedding day structured. We aren't having an MC at all...we are doing things very informally.

      Good luck with your MC's!

        What a tough situation. I think I would be direct and say that you need an answer. I would tell them that I understand their situation and will harbor no hard feelings if they are not up to it.

          Tough call...but ultimately you need to know if they are coming regardless...so in there you can drop the whole MC thing. It's important for your planning.

          P.S. The MC is totally up to you, we are asking our friend, who is also playing our wedding song. He plays guitar and he's taking it down there!!! I would think about designating someone else, because I think it's nice to 'enter' the room and have someone announce the bridal party and first dances...but if that's not your thing, then don't sweat it!

            Just be direct and say I need to know what is happening so I can be organised and find a replacement.

                I agree, just being direct and asking for a yes or no, with no hard feelings if not.

                I don't think an MC is necessary, but if it's what you want, 2 month countdown!!

                  I agree with everyone...I would just be direct. I am sure they will understand. We are having a friend of the family be our MC. I just feel it would be weird without someone organzing our reception and announcing things. My thoughts though.

                    I agree - just explain there is no pressure, but you just need to know. If they were good enough friends to be MCing in the first place, I'm sure they'll understand your need to know.

                    Regarding the MC - we are having a small wedding (around 30ish) and are doing the IPod thing with a groomsmen and bridesmaid MCing and manning the IPod. I decided this after reading through a some threads on this forum - people said it's fine when it's fine, but if anything goes wrong it's nice to have a point person for troubleshooting the playlist and also to move people along, announce cake cutting, etc. I think it would take a lot of stress off of you, too. We had two people to share the work, and told them they can be as simple or as elaborate about it as they want and they're looking forward to it.

                      I completely agree....while you are trying to be sympathetic to their situation, you still have to make alternate arrangements so that you don't have a mess when you get to the "point of no return" and can't find anyone else in time. I am sure they will understand where you are coming from.

                      GOOD LUCK AND HANG IN THERE!
