Q. We really feel that we need someone else to help manage the day so we can relax and enjoy the time with our guests - we wondered about getting a toastmaster, but what are the benefits?

A. Timothy Lee says: Timothy says: Your wedding day is one of the most important and special days of your life, so instead of letting things happen by chance, have a professional on hand who will take away all the stresses and ensure all your suppliers work together to produce a seamless and memorable occasion. From helping the photographer with getting the long list of photos you want, to all those special moments such a speeches, cutting the cake, throwing the bouquet and your first dance, your wedding toastmaster can be on hand to ensure they happen seamlessly. The traditional red coat will bring some formality and structure to your day, but it doesn't have to be regimented or stuffy.

Make sure you get to know your toastmaster before the day. I always offers a face-to-face planning meeting to ensure that the chemistry is right so that you have the confidence to allow him to run the day. Don't forget to check their experience and background, for instance, whether they have trained with the UK School of Professional Toastmasters, as I did. What's most important to remember that the day should be how you want it and so planning is essential to ensure that this happens.
