If you’ve been asked to deliver a wedding toast or speech at a Kansas City wedding reception, you’ve also been handed an excellent opportunity to shine and to create a lasting memory for the Bride & Groom and their family and friends. There’s no need to dread the task of writing or presenting your wedding toast, unless you fail to prepare. Here’s a thumbnail look at a few wedding toast basics to make your task easy.
• First, your toast should be light, fun, and appropriate for all ears.
• Be succinct and prepare notes with bullet points to assure that you say everything you intended. Rambling and bumbling can lead to saying something you might wish you hadn’t said.
• Guests’ attention spans are short. So, keep your wedding toast brief…3 minutes is ideal.
• It’s OK to include fun memories or stories, but exclude inside jokes that the majority of guests will not comprehend.
• Be sure to mention, both, the Bride & Groom in your wedding toast, even if you only know one or the other.
• Finally, if you’re suddenly at a loss for words, try the old standby, “I’m so happy for you two. Cheers!” It never goes out of style.
