Another thread to get the bee’s opinion! 😉
FI DOES NOT want speeches. At all. Totally against them. I agree. My parent’s do not (of course they don’t…) They want us to have some sort of toast to the bride and groom (at least). FSIL (the Best Woman) thought about doing a slideshow to surprise FI. I then suggested videotaping MOH and FSIL doing a quick a toast, being the end of the slideshow. FMIL doesn’t think this is a good idea “There’s good surprises, and bad surprises, and I’m not sure how he’d feel about this. It might be a good idea to tell him.” I haven’t said anything to FI yet.
What are your thoughts? Surprise FI and hope it goes well? Scrap the whole idea and not do a toast at all? Or do I convince FI that having ONE toast with the two girls will not get out of hand and will be quick. FMIL suggested if we videotape the girls (which they’ve mentioned they like because it takes ALOT of pressure off them) and get our MC to do the whole “raise your glasses now” etc. And now that I’ve seen a few bees complaining about slideshows, would it really be worth it for FSIL to put work into it??
