I’m semi-nervous about my Maid/Matron of Honor giving a toast at my wedding reception. I have always pictured a wonderful speeche that would make me cry but I think she’s going to make a joke of it! I’m just nervous. Any advice on how to approach this with her?

If you really prefer her to make a more heartfelt, emotional speech, talk to her and tell her this. Some people see toasts as a time to be really sentimental, others see them as a time to roast the bride and groom – in my experience both are pretty well accepted, and the jokey toasts go over really well. If it matters, say something, because she may or may not figure out what you want on her own.
