Let the celebration begin! It’s time to pop the bubbly and fill your wedding glasses, because the speeches are about to commence.
A lot of people find it a little nerve wracking giving a speech at a wedding. Speaking in front of a crowd is simply something most of us aren’t used to doing. We have a few key tips to share that will have you preparing the best speeches ever! With a little practice and some loving words, you’ll have your audience in the palm of your hands in no time at all.
The key is to keep your speech simple and meaningful. Importantly, keep it in honour of the happy couple that’s about to spend the rest of their lives together. So, have you topped up everyone’s wedding glasses with champagne yet, as we’re about to start.
There’s an order in which the wedding reception toasts are given. Traditionally, the proceedings kick off with the bestman toasting the bride. This is followed with the maid or matron of honour toasting the groom. The father of the bride then toasts the newlyweds. Other parental figures of the couple then toast the happy couple. Now, drum roll please as we’re nearing the end of the formalities. The newlyweds now propose toasts to their family and finally their guests. Ta-Dah! Oh and one last suggestion, don’t forget to raise your glass during your toast and to sip your champagne after each toast. Otherwise, it’s just a regular old speech!
