Dos and Don'ts of Wedding Jokes for an MC

While humor can add a delightful touch to the celebration, it’s essential to navigate this terrain with sensitivity and tact. Here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind to MC like a pro and deliver jokes like a boss:

Host delivering wedding jokes for an MC


  • Know Your Audience: Understanding the demographics and sensibilities of the wedding guests is key. Tailor your jokes to match their personalities and preferences, ensuring everyone can appreciate the humor.

  • Keep It Clean: Opt for jokes that are family-friendly and inoffensive. Remember, a wedding is a joyous occasion attended by people of all ages, so steer clear of any material that could cause discomfort or embarrassment.

  • Personalize When Possible: Incorporate anecdotes and references specific to the couple to make your jokes more meaningful and memorable. Personal touches add warmth and authenticity to your MC performance.

  • Test the Waters: Gauge the audience’s reaction to your jokes throughout the event. Pay attention to laughter and engagement levels, adjusting your approach as needed to keep the mood light and enjoyable.

  • Balance Humor with Sincerity: While humor is a central part of your role, don’t forget the importance of heartfelt moments. Intersperse your jokes with sincere well-wishes and words of encouragement for the newlyweds.


  • Avoid Offensive Material: Steer clear of jokes that rely on stereotypes, derogatory language, or sensitive topics such as race, religion, or politics. Offensive humor has no place at a wedding celebration.

  • Refrain from Inside Jokes: While personalized anecdotes can be endearing, avoid inside jokes that only a select few will understand. Your goal is to include everyone in the laughter, not alienate some guests.

  • Don’t Overdo It: Strike a balance between humor and sincerity. Overloading your MC duties with constant jokes can detract from the heartfelt moments and make the celebration feel superficial.

  • Don’t Single Out Guests: Avoid singling out individual guests for the sake of a joke, especially if it could embarrass or discomfort them. Keep your humor inclusive and directed towards the general atmosphere of the event.

  • Don’t Insult or Mock: Humor should uplift and entertain, not belittle or ridicule. Avoid making jokes at the expense of others, including the couple, their families, or anyone else present at the wedding.

The #1 problem clients face...

As I’m sure you’re aware, we live in a world where people fear commitment. People leave all of their options open, because they’re afraid they might end up loosing out on a future opportunity that might be superior to what is right in front of them.

Yet this way of thinking is wrong… But why?

Because by failure to commit to something, the best options available become unavailable. What we thought was a sure thing, ends up becoming a missed opportunity. Through our deliberate action of inaction, we’re soon presented with second-tier options. Options that you wish you could’ve avoided in the first place. But you’ve already committed to the idea of hiring a DJ, so you end up going through with it anyway, and you choose whoever is available because you don’t want to completely miss out. But you know in your heart it didn’t feel like the right choice. And when the money is spent, and the performance is over, you’re disappointed. And you tell yourself: never again. Yet just like a teenager who claims to never drink again after binge drinking the night before, we end up in a cycle of never committing, and always being stuck with bad alternatives. Deep down inside, we’re unhappy. And we’re left with regret.

Amazing opportunities don't last long.

DJing.ca only performs at 125 corporate events per year,  and performs in front of companies such as McLaren, FlyOver Canada, and ActiveState. As we get more referrals each year, the number of calls & emails continues to grow. 

And with good reason.

Having a 100% satisfaction rate, we keep getting referrals. That’s what happens when you are Vancouver’s best DJs.

I know a lot of other people claim that, but here’s the facts:

We spent an entire year, or 4,000+ hours (yes, we’re work-a-holics) searching through 350 DJs, only to find the top 15 that met our expectations based on personality, experience, and professionalism. If any DJ doesn’t receive a 5/5 star rating from clients (just like yourself), they do not meet the requirements of our contract and can no longer work with us.

And here’s the kicker…

To date we haven’t had to remove anyone.

If you want your event to be truly amazing, don’t hesitate. Fill out the form, we’re here to help. Let’s work together to make your vision come to life.
