    We had my dad give a toast, the maid of honor, best man, and groom’s sister.  The first three were scheduled way in advance, obvi; then SIL asked to give a speech a week or two before the wedding.

    Here was our timeline in regards to toasting:

    – FOB toast immediately after all the entrances

    – Dinner

    – Mingling

    – MOH, BM, SIL toasts

    – Cake cutting

    I thought it worked really well that way, and we did the toasts in two different locations (2nd toasts were near the cake).  It was good having them spread out like that too.

    Are you inviting these two friends to the rehearsal dinner? They could do toasts then.

    When you say “we thought they could have they chance” does that mean they’ve asked?  Or are you going to ask them to do one?

    ETA – Also to answer your question, it might work if you broke them up, but honestly if any of them might run kind of long I, as a guest, would much rather just hear the 2 and save the other 2 for rehearsal.
