Being part of a wedding is a huge honor – but it also comes with some responsibilities too. For instance, if you have been asked to give a wedding toast for your friends or relatives, you should absolutely make sure to do this in a delicate way. What are some of the most important “don’ts” to keep in mind when it comes to this? Read on and find out more.
- Touchy topics. Talking about religion, politics or sexuality in a wedding speech is not only off the topic, but it can also be quite touchy for some of the guests – so you should definitely avoid doing it. Even more, you should absolutely avoid talking about the couple’s beak ups, about how high the divorce rate is or about any of their Exes!
- Keep it short and sweet. Everyone knows you have a lot to say about the couple that just got married. Most likely, you have known at least one of them for a long time now. However, keep your toast shorter than 5 minutes. This should be more than enough to say a few sweet words and to wish the couple all the great things in the world.
- Don’t be too sentimental…or tipsy. If you know you have to deliver a speech, make sure you don’t have too many drinks before that. Even more, try to avoid being too sentimental because this may be interpreted as a way of making the wedding about you and not about the bride and groom.
