I’m hoping you guys can help me out. I am the Maid/Matron of Honor and have to give a toast/speech at my friend’s wedding next week. I am a terrible public speaker and get super nervous (there will be two hundred people at this wedding!). I would love suggestions for a short toast or maybe even a cute prank. The bride is also open to having the bridesmaids do something together. I am drawing a complete blank because of my anxiety over standing up in front of all those people 🙁

@thebasha:I was just at a wedding where the sister was the Maid/Matron of Honor – she did a couple cute things.
Had the groom do an ‘exercise’ – look up, now bring your head down to your chest, repeat. (basically had him nodding yes) Said something to the effect of you will use this many times in your marriage.
Then had him put his hand over the bride’s and then raise them into the air – Maid/Matron of Honor then said, “congratulations, this is the last time you will ever have the upper hand in this marriage”. It was pretty cute and not mean at all for everyone who know the bride and groom’s personalities but you would want to know they’d be ok with the teasing 🙂
