Does anyone have any suggestions of what kind of info I should be providing my wedding MC to be proactive? What information does the MC usually require from the Bride and Groom? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding. First, each and every DJ, Band or MC does things a bit differently. They each have their own forms they use to keep things organized for themselves. So no matter what you have you may very well be forced to rewrite it on their forms.
However, with that said, here are some things you will want to have handy. First and most importantly, will be the songs used for the 1st dance, plus the bride/dad and groom/mom dances. You are also going to need a list of the bridal party, parents and grandparents to be used during the introductions. The MC will also need to know who is going to be giving speeches/toasts at the reception. Will you have a blessing over the meal? Finally, you will want to think about the songs which must be played at the reception and those you absolutely don't want played no matter what.
