@ Sunshine – we are doing things a little differently, we don’t have any toasts planned, and the speeches are just as people request to do them (so we are giving a thank-you, my parents are giving a speech, his parents are giving a speech, my sisters (BM’s) are giving a speech, and the Groomsmen are giving a speech)
