Wedding toasts can be absolutely unforgettable – but you definitely want yours to be even more than that. You want your wedding toast to be memorable, beautiful, funny and absolutely flawless. How to do that? How to create a wedding toast everyone will genuinely love? Here are some do’s and don’ts you should keep in mind:
- Write your speech on paper and bring it with you. It is only natural to feel nervous speaking in front of so many guests, so bringing your speech with you can be more than helpful. Also, rehearsing it at home in the mirror can also help you get rid of some of the anxiety associated with public speaking.
- Speak truly and honestly. The bride, the groom and their guests don’t want to hear dishonest words. They want a genuine, warm and truly sincere wedding toast – so speak from the heart, in your own words.
- This is not the kind of thing to leave to the last moment – so don’t procrastinate. Take your time, write down the speech, edit it as many times as you need and rehearse it every day before the wedding. Trust us, it will be worth it.
- Don’t go overboard with the jokes. It is OK (and recommendable) that you add a joke or two. But you should steer clear of being just funny or, even worse, offending someone with your jokes. Keep the dirty jokes for intimate gatherings, don’t remind people of embarrassing moments and don’t even think of mentioning Exes.
