The wedding toast should not become a roast!

The tradition of the wedding toast is well founded within our culture. It is to acknowledge  the newlywed couple, and to share a positive moment honoring them on this grand occasion. It is typical for the best man to give his toast first. The wedding dj will act as the toastmaster and keep everything flowing smoothly.

This is to be taken seriously, and should be prepared for ahead of time. It is fine to have some goodhearted humor, but this is not the time to share embarrassing stories about the bride and groom. In recent time, it has become tradition for the maid of honor to also share a toast.

It is not uncommon for the parents to say something at this point followed by the groom and or bride.

This is not the time to open the microphone to the whole room. The celebration should continue at this point.

Disclaimer: However, it your wedding so you may choose to open it up to whomever you want. (You don’t have to follow tradition!)
