Wedding Toast - Deliver It the Way People Will Remember It For Long!

Feb 5, 2008
Wedding is no doubt a changeover in a man's / woman's life. But it can be a memorable one for the couple if they get everything going as per their plans on their Big Day. What if they get to listen to the most interesting wedding toast? They can cherish their wedding day in their memories for long.

What's a Wedding Toast? It's a speech delivered at wedding and it can be delivered by the Best Man at wedding, a groomsman, groom's friends, bridesmaid, Maid of Honor or parents of either bride or groom and anyone who wants to wish the couple. It should be remembered that delivering a wedding toast is an honor in itself and a great privilege.

However, it is not all that easy and simple to stand up in front of 100+ people. You will feel that your tongue is locked! It can be a jittery feeling especially for first-time speakers. But they can still deliver a memorable wedding toast if they do some prior research, write down the speech and practice and rehearse well before the actual date.

The first thing you need to mentally tune yourself is to stand at ease. This will enable you to be your normal self. Once you are your normal being, you can deliver an interesting and mesmerizing wedding toast.

After that you need to jot down the speech and just remember to keep it short and sweet (put yourself in listener's position). Let the speech start with a small intro as how you are related to the newly wed groom or bride. If you happen to be the Best Man or Maid of Honor, extend thanks to the bride, groom and their respective parents.

If you have been associated with bride or groom or both, narrate a funny anecdote involving them. However, keep a watch on obscenity. Humor stands apart from obscenity; never tell anything that might put the bride/groom. No rivalries at this point. Jot down some good hit jokes with relevance to marriage and neatly space these jokes in between your wedding toast to make the audience spellbound. As a thumb rule never pour boring suggestions on to the bride or the groom.

Try to relive funny incidents that involve the newlyweds and it is going to bring tons of blushes on the bride's cheeks and it will surely be a treat for everyone to watch her blushes blossoming deep.

It is not a bad idea to read some great one liner or quotes of great people. You can do that to just add an extra element of humor and fun and they will be remembered for quite long. To read a wedding toast humorously, one need to have perfect timing and you will get it with more of practice. Read it in front of a mirror before the wedding day.

At the end of the speech, lift the glass and propose the toast. Convey cheers to the newlywed and the crowd. You may even tune the party mood by saying a funny punch line.

A wedding toast delivered in an informal humor tone will be remembered for a very long time, it is though difficult to deliver such a speech but certainly it is not an impossible one.
