Conversation in our house today:
Me: So, are we doing some kind of toast to our guests?
NotFroofy: The boy does that. We don’t have a boy.
Me: Well, unless you are planning to acquire a boy before October 6, I think we need to do it.
NotFroofy: What would I do with a boy? Well, let’s see. The best man is supposed to thank the bridesmaids. But we don’t have a best man or bridesmaids, so that isn’t going to work. But it is the father who is supposed to thank everyone for coming.
Me: Yeah, well, neither of our fathers will be there, so we need to act the part of my father.
NotFroofy: What? We have to get pissed and fall down? [“Pissed”=British slang for drunk, not American slang for angry.]
Ah, the complications of lesbian weddings!

Lol. That’s pretty funny.
You actually got a giggle out of me when I’m in a pity party mood. 🙂 Thanks for that.

At least here in America, whoever HOSTS the wedding (i.e. pays for it) thanks the guests for coming, I think. So … that sounds like it would be you two!
Are you not having any attendants at all, 2dBride? Really, I think anyone you ask to do a toast can do it. Why limit yourself? If you want to include toasts, ask someone who you know cares about you (and who won’t get pissed and fall down, haha!)

ha! I’m sick as a dog with flu and read this at 4.30am when I was up in agony. Made me laugh outloud!
Really anyone can give speeches. Why don’t you guys give the speech thanking everyone together?
If you want, you can get pissed and fall down hahaha if that feels more authentic to you!!!
