I have 2 matrons of honor and they are each going to give a toast, following the best man's toast. Our DJ/emcee suggested that my Dad give a toast at the rehearsal dinner to cut down on the amount of toasts at the reception and in an effort to keep things moving along. At the reception, my Dad is just simply going to thank everyone for coming before the blessing. I still have to break the news to my fiance that he has to give a toast at the reception ;-)

Others may not agree, but I'm not having a toast at the reception.  We're doing all of our toasts with our closest family and friends at the rehearsal dinner.  This way, the reception does not get interupted with too much down time and sappy speeches.  We'll have all the spappiness the night before!  :D  The guidelines listed are great!  Thanks for the tips!

Whether or not you choose to have your father, new husband, or members of the bridal party toast, I feel it is still a must for the bride and groom to give a short and sweet toast to their guests.  Thank them for coming to support and celebrate this new chapter of life for you and your husband.  After all, isn't that the whole point of the reception?This should take place either during the dinner or just before the cake cutting when you have everyone's attention.

I am using a wedding coordinator to help with my wedding details. Is there a proper way to say thank you during a toast along with all of the help that our families have put into the wedding without some overshadowing the other?

Thank you Future_Mrs_C...
We're having a huge reception the following weekend and only a small "cocktail" type deal after the ceremony. Perhaps having the speaches at the rehearsal dinner would be better. And him and I can just do a little speach thanking everybody before or after the cake cutting.


Not all of these articles pertain to us, but this was a decent one, especially with the comments! 101 more days!

We are skipping any toasts or speeches other than my FI will say a thank you to our guests and our coordinator. I am not comfortable speaking in front of so many people.
