Should You Book A Professional Emcee For Your Sangeet Or Mehendi?

BY Apoorva | 20 Apr, 2023 | 1732 views | 3 min read

Dance performances, solo acts, family dances – a big fat sangeet is made up of all this and more. And to tie all of this together, everyone needs an emcee. While most of us pick a friend or a cousin to run the show, there are professional emcees that do a stellar job of it. So the question lies in whether you should book a professional emcee for your wedding sangeet or not? Here’s what we have to say! Consider certain things before you take this decision. Here are the top things you should weigh in before booking your professional emcee!

Size Of The Sangeet

Is your sangeet more of a family event with a few dances from each side or a full-blown Bollywood sangeet with choreographed dances and background dancers? If you're planning a large Sangeet with a lot of guests, an emcee can help keep things organized and ensure that guests are engaged and having a good time!

Comfort Level

If it’s a small sangeet with only family and friends, having an outsider hosting the show can be weird. But a glam-night sangeet needs a professional emcee who can keep things running, plus you as a couple can just enjoy your own sangeet!

Cost Control

Emcees are an added cost, and if you're on a tight budget, you may want to skip this expense. But if you are looking to go all out and have a picture-perfect night, an emcee is a cost that you should invest in!

Themed Sangeet

Planning a theme sangeet with your lovestory as the storyline or like a retro-Bollywood theme. Then having an emcee is a must. Not only will they gather relevant jokes and talking points around it but it will all be a well-put-together show!

No Pressure

A fantastic benefit of booking an emcee is that it takes some of the pressure off of you. If you're nervous or want to enjoy the event without worrying about running it, an emcee can be a great option. They can handle the logistics and keep things running smoothly, allowing you to relax and enjoy the festivities.

Element Of Personalization 

A professional emcee will work with you to understand your vision for the event and customize their performance to match your preferences. They can also incorporate personal anecdotes and stories into their hosting to make the event more meaningful.

Entertainment Value

A professional emcee can add an element of entertainment to the event. They can interact with the audience, crack jokes, and keep their energy level high. They can also conduct couple games and audience interactions!

Professional Skills

If you have guests who speak different languages, a professional emcee who is fluent in multiple languages can be an asset. They can communicate effectively with all guests and ensure that everyone feels included and welcome.

In the end, the decision of whether or not to book an emcee for your Sangeet is a personal one. Consider your budget, experience, and personal preferences, and decide what will work best for you. Whether you hire an emcee or not, the most important thing is to enjoy your special day with your loved ones.
