10 Tips For Toasting at a Wedding

The lovely (and brilliantly creative) ladies over at Southern Weddings Magazine have put together this great list of tips and advice for any of you that are planning to give a short speech at an upcoming wedding.  I personally remember being pretty nervous when I had to say a few sincere words at my friend's wedding reception, but thankfully everything turned out fine :)  If you're a feeling a bit uneasy like I was, hopefully this will come in handy...

Wedding toasting tips

Oh, and If you're not familiar with Southern Weddings or their amazingly gorgeous blog, check them out here. 


  1. I'm the MOH at my best friend's wedding in November. I've been putting off thinking about my speech due to being scared to death and having a fear of public speaking. I plan on keeping my speech short and sweet. Thanks for these tips.

  2. Eliquo - that is exactly what I did. I was sooooo nervous. I hate having to stand in front of a crowd and talk. Just remember that everyone there will be so happy and excited for the couple and that's the focus. Plus it will be over before you know it:)

  3. Great tips. Sharing these with my entire bridal party ;-)

    After reading this, I need to cut my intended speech down by a few minutes. I've practiced in front of a mirror and timed myself. It has been averaging about 8 minutes. The tips said that it should be 5 minutes maximum. So glad about that!

  5. Bridget - I kept mine short and sweet. I don't even think it was a couple of minutes. I was really nervous though, so it seemed like it was 10 minutes long:)

  6. Leigh - anytime! Thanks for showing your appreciation:) :)
