Beach Pretty Wedding:  Do's and Don'ts For Writing the Perfect Wedding Toast

Beach Pretty Wedding: Do's and Don'ts For Writing the Perfect Wedding Toast

It is such an honor to be asked to give the toast at a wedding, but along with the honor becomes the huge responsibility.  What should you say?  or not say?  Every guest eyes will be on you at this moment.  This lovely honor, soon consumes you and you end up spending endless hours trying to write the best, funniest, and perfect toast.  Stop..it really is simple, if you follow a few golden rules.

Golden Rules:

Do's:

1.  Obviously, you are very close to either the bride or groom, for them to ask you say a toast. So, start the toast introducing yourself and sharing with them your relationship you have with the bride or groom.

2. Always include why this person is so special to you and always complement the things you love about the bride or groom.

3. Since your best friend is getting married to the (man, women) of their dreams, enlighten the guests, how they met and about their love story.

4. Feel free to share why you think they are an amazing couple.

5. Finish up with a toast, wishing them a happy future and how today is the first day of an unbelievable life time together.

Don't:

1. Not everyone was born naturally funny, so don't fret, just be real and true to your heart..and smile.  No one ever said the toast had to be a stand-up act.

2. Don't bring up embarrassing details, like finally she got a ring! Or hopefully, they have a pre-nup.

3. Never bring up the ex's; this is about today and the happy couple.

4. Do not bring up funny little inside stories, they might be hilarious, but your guests will not get the humor. (this is their day, so limit the talk about you and (her,him))

5. Don't go on and on..keep it short and simple.
