@FMJKL: I agree with you. I do have an alternative option: Have the 13 year old do it with MOG. It is time for the best man to be a young man and the toast is part of it, but mom can give a little support, too. This way he isn’t talking by himself and she isn’t talking by herself. Tell him he can stand with everyone, he doesn’t have to stand alone in front of the crowd. It can be three sentences. Seriously, over in 10 seconds. Last, make sure whoever is in charge of the mic does NOT hand it to MOG at any time.

well I think SOMEONE should give a toast. Something should be said about the bride and groom, the occassion and why everyone is there.  I think the toast(s) is what ties the reception to the ceremony.  It’s a moment when everyone’s focus is on the bride and groom at the same time.  A centering point of the reception.

So if no one else wants to say anything, I kind of think it’s nice that MOG has offered to say something.

I think the grrom should toast, and thank FOB, Future Mother-In-Law, and the best man.

So she gets her limelight, and you don’t have to deal with her toasting!

@FMJKL:   well i could see where you would want to push her away, my suggestion is talk to the Bm again and see if someone could help him through it or even help him write it it could be over so quick or if no one else is willing to toast , the heck with it whats the worst she could say right???
