His responsibilities extend far beyond simply announcing the meal and would include such activities as:

Arriving at the venue well before the Bridal Party to ensure that everything is in order and complies with their wishes.

Isn’t this all a bit formal ?
Not at all!
Your wedding reception can be as formal or informal as you and your family want and a good Toastmaster will ensure that your wishes are carried out accordingly.
Don’t forget ifs not a rehearsal- you don’t get a second chance to get it right!
The most important thing is that your celebration proceeds without a hitch enabling you to relax and enjoy the day.
Retaining me will ensure that all this will happen.
