We did a toast, no champagne. We did it right as soon as everyone was seated and had grabbed their drinks from the bar, RIGHT before dinner. I thought it shoulda been afterwards, but by then, people were mingling and socializing, so it ended up being the perfect time.

My dad did a "welcome toast" right after all the dances were over, just before dinner, to say hi to everybody and let them know the buffet was open. We did the rest of our toasts at the rehearsal dinner.

We’re planning on doing our toasts right before dinner. We’re doing best man first, MoH second, then some combination of parents. We still don’t know who wants to do them. Neither father is much of a talker as far as public speaking goes. The whole parent speech situation is a serious TBD!

I hadn’t really thought about it much yet. But it seems like the general consensus is right before dinner.

We aren’t having alcohol at our reception, if this makes a difference, but we are having toasts with sparkling cider. My stepdad is going to announce us, give a welcome, and say a prayer, and then announce the opening of the buffet – so this is much a like a toast without really toasting us at the beginning of the reception. Then, after we cut the cake, our best man and maid of honor will toast us with flutes of sparking cider (these will be distributed to guests as well), and then we will toast each other and our guests.

At our after party, we will have beer and wine and maybe limited cocktails. If anyone would like to propose a toast, it will be informal, but they will be welcome to.
