Throughout your wedding there will be moments that are simply unforgettable. Some moments will bring tears, many smiles and laughter and one particular moment will call for a CHEERS! Raise your toasting glass along with friends and family in a toast to a lifetime of health, love and happiness.
How a Wedding Toast Works:
After the bridal party and newly married couple have made their grand entrance into the reception and everyone is seated with champagne to toast with, the best man traditionally leads the toasting. Tip: Consider gifting your best man and maid of honor or all your bridal party with wedding party toasting glasses for a way to make them feel extra special during this important time in the wedding.
During the toast to the bride and groom, the couple remains seated with their toasting glasses raised, while all the guests stand. The best man can start his toast by saying how and where he met the groom. He can talk a little about old times. Adding a little humor will ease his nerves a bit. At the end of the toast, the best man raises his glass and toasts to the bride and groom. The guests will then raise their glasses and join in the toast.
The bride and groom can then make a toast to thank their parents, family and friends for sharing this special day with them. Thank your parents for their help and support in planning your wedding. Thank the wedding party for all they've done in making your day special. If the groom wishes to toast his new bride, she remains seated while the groom and the guests remain standing. If the bride wishes to toast her new husband, the groom remains seated while the bride and all the guests remain standing.
Then the parents, wedding party or relatives can toast the bride and groom, if they wish to do so. After they have all shared their special thoughts, your friends can share a favorite memory with all your guests.
Although it is expected to greet each guest personally and say thank you, it can be difficult to reach everyone during the hustle and bustle of the reception - not to mention you want to enjoy the day, too! Consider a special toast from the two of you to personally thank your family, friends and guests for participating in this wonderful day. It's a great gesture and your friends and family will be delighted in the effort.
