3 Great Wedding Emcee Jokes To Start The Reception

It’s always nice to start the evening off on the right foot. I have seen, and personally used, each of the following 3 wedding emcee jokes with great success over the years.  They are quick, easy to learn, and appropriate for virtually all groups (with, perhaps, the exception of the last one).

See if one of these feels right to you.  That is the most important factor in delivering a successful wedding emcee joke … that, deep down, YOU find the joke funny also.  If you have a genuine smile on your face while delivering the joke, your audience will have one too!


1.  Before we get started, I have a short personal announcement:

My wife/girlfriend <name> is expecting

<wait for applause>

Oh my god … I’m so sorry.  I meant expecting me to NOT make a fool of myself today.

I’m not off to a good start, my apologies <name of wife/GF>

(Women Wedding Emcees can use an amended version of this joke also!)


2.  I wanted to start the evening by pointing out that Jane looks absolutely stunning today.

<wait for applause>

And John, well, John just looks absolutely stunned.


3.  Being asked to be the emcee of a wedding is a lot like being asked to make love to the Queen Mother

<pause for silence / effect>

It’s a great honor … but you really wish somebody else would do it.


These are 3 surefire winners to get you started.  They set the tone for the evening and really get everyone in a festive mood.  Just make sure that you personalize your wedding emcee jokes!


To your success,

    Great tips. I received a call from Sydney this morning (niece) asking me to be their MC – I panicked thinking I cannot sing – let along Rap – why ask me… After making a call to my son (who is a DJ asking him to get me a crash course with one of his MC’s) he informed me that this was a totally different type of MC…. Phew! I’ve already been on Sing Star practising (and this is not a Joke!)… ha ha..

    Thanks, Lindy
