The Wedding Toast

 Many of my couples ask about the wedding toast.  Here are a few quick pointers for you


A Guide to Writing Wedding Toasts

 You have been asked by the bride to give a toast at her wedding, and you are completely perplexed about what to do. You don’t want your toast to be ordinary, but you want to be sure you are following the established rules of etiquette. What to do?

Just follow this formula, and your toast will be both appropriate and spectacular.

1.     1.  Thank guests for coming and express your gratitude for being selected to speak. You can never go wrong by being gracious!

2.      2. Mention the emotional significance of the event and that you could not be more excited that the bride and groom have decided to spend their lives together.

3.     3.  An appropriate story or reminiscence about the bride and groom meeting or the moment when you realized they were made for each other is always touching. Be sure the story is one that everyone will appreciate, though.

4.      4. A fun story that explains your relationship to the bride can also be entertaining, but be sure it has a purpose. For example if you were childhood friends who both loved princesses and fairy tales, you could tie this in to a reference to the bride finding her prince and living “happily ever after”.

5.      5. Emphasize how much the bride means to you and offer the couple best wishes for a happy life together. Keep it short.  remember, it is a taost, not a roast!

6.      6. Complete your toast with “Cheers!”

7.   Enjoy the compliments for giving a fabulous toast.


Welcome Baskets

Many of your wedding guests will most likely need to travel a bit to attend your celebration. If this is the case, it is a hospitable gesture to welcome them and thank them by placing a welcome basket in their hotel room (or personally deliver it if you have time)!
The contents of the basket are entirely up to you, but here are a few fun ideas:
A personal note welcoming the guests to your town is a must! Be sure it is hand-written.
Some bottled water and light snacks will be appreciated by tired travelers. Perhaps choose foods that are unique to your local area!
If you are a fabulous baker, feel free to include a few homemade cookies or muffins!
If you wish, a bottle of local wine could be included!
Maps and brochures from the surrounding area will help your guests to plan and enjoy their free time! Feel free to attach hand written notes offering advice!
Tickets to a local event or activity (even if they are just complimentary passes) will inspire your guests to explore the area a bit!

Welcome baskets do not have to be lavish and expensive! They are simply a way to let your guests know that you greatly appreciate the time and effort it took them to attend your wedding.
