Who says the Wedding Toast?

The Wedding Toast must be said by who the couple considers is the ideal person to give them such beautiful words.

Usually, they choose a godfather, but this is not mandatory.

Bride and groom can choose their parents or siblings, to say this speech. Also they can choose a mutual friend, who have been with them since the beginning of the relationship.

It can be even more dynamic, asking more than one person to make the toast. This is a great idea, due that couple is not limited to choose only one person. They can choose a group of people who will say unique speeches.

How to make a Wedding Speech?

Wedding Toast should express the happiness that the godfather or godmother feels for the couple.

We recommend you writing it first, so you do not forget any detail when saying it. Try to use personal and funny stories, which will remain the couples essence.

You can mention the importance of love and marriage. You can also use memories you have of the couple, which you think are appropriate for the toast. Adding a love quote is also an incrdible idea, this will bring the speech a nice touch and will stand out the romantic background.

We recommend that the speech should no be longer than five minutes, do not extend too much, it should be short and clear. Express the emotion you feel about watching the couple uniting their lives together.
