See Jane Toast - Jane Summers Blog Tips for toasting a bride

There will be numerous opportunities for toasting and celebrating the newly engaged couple, whether an engagement party, rehearsal dinner or wedding reception.  Below are a few quick tips from the knot to keep in mind when preparing a toast...

1.  Keep it simple.  Try to engage your audience without rambling and avoid words you wouldn't typically use.  A beautiful toast can be as short as a few sentences or as long as two minutes.  Be genuine.

2.  Take it seriously.  By agreeing to toast the couple, you have a chance to tell an important story.  This is both an honor and a responsibility.  Embrace this opportunity with both grace and maturity.

3.  Practice, practice, practice.  The knot suggests writing out your toast several weeks before the event.  Approach this with the same perspective you would an important work presentation.  The knot also suggests having someone you trust edit your work and provide feedback.  The more prepared you are, the less likely you will have to rely upon last-minute, hastily scrawled thoughts...
