We didn’t know that we needed to ask anyone necessarily to do speeches, we thought they would just speak up if they wanted to say something.  Well, no one did at all.  We said a mini thank you speech to everyone before dessert and that was it (we gave out gifts on a different day).  I was a little disappointed, but maybe we should have asked people to say something, or at least one person, to get the trend going.

We said a thank you speech to everyone when we distributed the wedding party and parents presents. DH’s mom said a little speech as well since she was the host. If any one else had wanted to say anything they were more than welcome to, but we didn’t feel it was necessary for the rehearsal dinner.

I dont know what protocol is, but I was planning to thank people at our rehearsal dinner. I just feel like I NEED to publicly thank our family and friends and I’d rather do it at the Rehearsal Dinner than the wedding.
