A successful toast at wedding should reflect the personality of a speaker. That was the first helpful advice in a long row I learned from the interesting book by Belinda Hamilton at the website Wedding Speeches For All . I was asked to be a maid of honor literally 2 days before a wedding so I had to write a speech with cool wedding wishes quotes very quickly. I was afraid to deliver a toast in front of people I barely know and I also wasn’t sure what wedding phrases include into my speech to make it fitting the occasion.
It turned out that my fear was partially vain because confidence comes when you understand that your toast is actually one of the best at a wedding. Thanks to the books at that website I learned there are few traditional ways to compose and deliver a toast at weddings. Quotes are inevitable part of any toast, but it is a half science and half art of including them into a speech. A lot of useful content for the newlyweds, their parents and friends is contained in these books. I would like to share few recommendations about delivering a toast with usage of wedding wishes quotes. These advices are based partially on my own experience and partially on the Belinda Hamilton’s books.
The best way to deliver a toast is to write or recollect few original and hilarious jokes about a groom or a bride. But there are plenty of pitfalls so if you are not sure you could insert into a toast decent light jokes, that it will be more reasonable to avoid humorous notes or use pre-ready templates of funny wedding speeches which can be found online. A toast can be written with sentimental approach expressing in such way affection and making a just married couple and all guests emotional.
Another important aspect of any wedding toast is based on time frame. It is preferable to cut toasts short, lasting no more than few minutes. Do not include too many wedding wishes quotes. Also a toast should be rehearsed at least few times before delivering it at a wedding. If you know your speech by heart your performance will provide better effect on guests and the married friends.
You can choose to tell a toast in any way you find the best considering the characters of the newlyweds. But the last thing you want to is to embarrass them, so make sure you are sober enough to deliver your speech properly. Toasts told by the drunken guests are usually the funniest ones but they also make the newlyweds feel awkward or insulted. So think twice before drinking to become funnier and not so scarred of public performances.
Do not forget to add in your toast some proper wishes and quotes especially if you know few which are meaningful for a just married couple. Recollect one or two phrases from romantic movies, poems or songs to make a bride and groom feel sentimental. Such tone of your toast will cheer up all present guests to remember their own love stories and your toasts will be accepted and appreciated at the highest level.
