I think that idea sounds fine, but definitely make sure people keep them short.

We had four 2-minute toasts that were given once guests were seated, before dinner was served. We did make sure there was an antipasto board at each table for guests to snack on while the speeches happened.

We had five toasts also. We did the same. Grand entrance, first dance, two toasts (our dads), salad served, then the last three toasts. It went well, not too long thanks to the break in between. Since you have a cocktail hour, your guests shouldn’t be too hungry coming into the reception.

As a wedding photographer…eh, hem….they are never short…never.   

I had one that about 6 people stood up – lasted 45  minutes. Not kidding.  As much as I love listening to speaches and learning more about my clients, it got really boring after about 5 minutes.  Seriously though, be strict with them. Caters get irritated too because food is typically ready to be served and they don’t like the food sitting too long.
