Speechs: When do they happen during the meal?

Hey Ladies,


My WC sent me a timeline. When do the speechs happen? After we sit and meal orders are taken? After the meal but before the cake? Thoughts?

Yes served meal. Here's what we have so far:


B & G announced


B & G 1st dance


B & G speech (thank yous to all before we sit down)


1st course served


So now, do we have the BM and MOH speech after the 1st course and before the entree? or after the entree has been served and eaten but before the cake?


Also, when should we do the mom/son, father/daughter dance?


Gosh, I am so ready for all this nit picky stuff to be over.

I usually have all the speaches over before dinner is over or when it's almost done. I also leave a little room (about 30 mins) before the cake cutting so people can digest their food a bit. You could dothe dances beofre or after the cake cutter. Up to you, I have seen it don both ways.

My toasts are after we are announced into the reception and they will pour the champagne while we do our first dance, just before we eat.
