You are the the best man or the maid of honor and now it's time for the toast. What do you say? What do you do? First, let's consider your relationship to the couple and mostly importantly, let's consider your personality. Are you the funny one or you the more sentimental one? Are you the creative one or are you the talented one? When giving the toast, don't try to be someone you are not!
Toasts are memorable for both good and bad reasons. If you give a racy, inappropriate toast; no one will ever forget it! If you give a heartfelt, well-thought out toast; no one will ever forget it! Refrain from giving an inappropriate one on the grounds of offending the same people you were elected to salute.
Seek out clever ways to add a bit of your personality, your history with the bride or groom and touches of sentiment. This let's the couple know that you put thought and energy in presenting them with a salute they will never forget.
