Wedding Photography has allowed me to be apart of many weddings. I have decided over the next few months I would blog about various items I can help with.
The Wedding Toast
So its the best man and maid of honors time to shine. I have heard the good, the bad, the short, the long and of course the drunk. This is a special time that a couple has been looking forward to. The first thing to remember is go easy on the drinking before the speech, there is plenty of time later in the night for that indulgence. Don’t be afraid to write down a few things to help with your memory. When it’s your turn with the mic do not be afraid to take your time. Write a speech that fits your personality. Do some research on writing a good speech. An inside joke is a nice touch, 4 or five is just boring for everyone else. Don’t drag it on. You will easily lose everyone at the 5-minute mark. Lastly… its a toast, put a little heart into the ending. Tell everyone to raise their glass and honor the couple in a special way. It’s your way of helping make their wedding day special.
