No toasts for us either! I actually hate listening to toasts at weddings and we have a few weird uncles and such that might entertain (not! ugh) the crowd if we were going that route.

I just went to one this weekend where there was no toast.  I noticed it missing, but it wasn’t weird or awkward or anything.  They had the bride’s borther say a few words welcoming everyone, but that was the extent of it.

aw I love the toast.  It’s the time when you really get to hear about the couple and their love and relationship. Have you thought about you or your Fiance giving a toast to your guest, parents, etc.  or even to each other.  I would personally find it kinda weird if there weren’t any toasts – as if no one is wishing the couple well.

Weddings are terrible for us shy ones! We are planning our wedding with the intention of avoiding all the LOOK LOOK THE BRIDE AND GROOM traditions. Jeesh, I just want to chat a bit with everyone, eat some rocking food, and have fun with my guy.

We skipped the toasts. We let the best man and matron of honor speak at the rehearsal dinner (along with the parents, if they wanted), and just let my dad welcome everybody to the party and officially open the buffet at the reception.

I think wedding toasts are awkward at best for the bride and groom (especially shy ones like Fiance and myself) and pretty boring for the rest of the guests. We’ll be skipping this!

we will have my father speak because he is an awesome writer and speaker! Fiance and i will say something short. like this short. to welcome and thank everyone. that’s all.

we are not fond of the toasts either. for the most part, the most we remember is that people usually say nice things about the bride and groom (as is expected) and that’s all. we don’t really remember details or anything. it’s nice and everything, but a big snooze fest to us. no offense to anyone.

btw—glad you brought this up. we thought we were the only weird ones.
