Knowing A Proper Wedding Toast Etiquette

Jun 2, 2008
So before we can talk about wedding toast etiquette, we need to know what a toast is. A toast is the act of raising a glass and drinking to honor someone or some thing. To start you offer the proposal of a toast, and then give the reasoning and the speech behind it. Now that we know what a toast is, we need to know how you know who gives the toast at a wedding. Knowing who gives the first toast and so forth is known as wedding toast etiquette. This is stuff that you need to know before going to a wedding so you know in what order things are suppose to happen.

When looking at wedding toast etiquette, we see that you are supposed to start off with the best man. This is the toast that he needs to come up with that is to be offered to the new bride and groom. After the speech is given, the groom (because it was his best man) is supposed to respond with some kind of thank you in responds to the toast that was given. Because the best man always goes first, the best man spot is supposed to be highly honored.

After the best man goes, the other members of the bride and grooms family can give a speech or a toast if they want to. However, usually not everyone gives a toast. If they did, there is an order in which it is suppose to go. After the best man goes, it is up to the father of the bride to go next, followed by the father of the groom. Then it would be up to their mothers, once again starting with the mother of the bride and next the mother of the groom. After all of this the groom can make a toast to his new wife and the wife can make a toast to the groom. However, this is not done very often.
