For most people, the wedding toast is a confusing aspect of the reception. While some people do offer a general toast, there are actually guidelines that should be followed. This action, just as any other associated with the wedding is considered sacred and therefore, should be treated with reverence. Now, that does not mean you cannot have fun with the toast, just that there are certain guidelines to follow.

The toast is a time for family and friends to offer his or her congratulations to the newly married couple, often presenting some type of information that is very important. For example, the toast may talk about when the couple first met, the couples first date, or the reasons why they make the perfect married couple.

While you could use sparkling grape juice or any other beverage, generally champagne is used. You want to offer guests with enough to drink without it being too much that could put them at risk after leaving the reception. Since champagne varies widely in price, you will need to determine the type the falls within your budget. A good rule to follow is that one case of champagne is comprised of 12 bottles, which will serve about 75 guests.

For the actual toast, the level of formality varies from one wedding reception to the next. For example, some people will have wedding toasts at the rehearsal dinner. If the occasion is informal, then the Maid of Honor, Best Man, parents, and friends can simply take turn offering a toast. However, if the occasion is formal, then the grooms parents, usually the host of the dinner or reception, will offer the first toast.

They start by welcoming the guests and then toast the bride and groom. From there, the Best Man will offer a toast to the couple. The best option is for the bride and groom along with whomever will be toasting to talk about the things that will be mentioned to ensure there are no awkward or embarrassing moments.

Next, guests of the dinner or reception along with other close family members are welcomed to offer a toast. The Best Man should serve as the host so the length of each toast can be controlled. If you were a guest, you need to be conscientious of other guests, by not saying anything out of line. The toast should be kept short and sweet.

Finally, the bride and groom will offer a toast to each other, saying something nice about how they met, fell in love, and plan to spend life together. While funny stories are always tempting, they can often backfire. For this reason, you would do best simply to offer a nice, heartfelt toast. Additionally, since it is likely that some guests will not hear as well as other guests, if possible, have a microphone set up on either side of the wedding party table so people with hearing problems or those sitting in the back can hear.
