During wedding ceremonies in the past, the bride and groom used to sit obediently and were told by the master of ceremonies when to stand, sit, smile, cut a cake, and take the floor for the opening dance.
Today, the MC has the same power over the newlyweds, but the couple have more room to move around the reception hall. The new addition to the event is the introductions of their families made by each of the couple to the invited guests. In turn, they introduce their parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, as well as close friends in attendance.
