Hello! I basically have everything planned and all except a few things. One of them being the toast. I do not have a maid of honor. I don’t have a sister and as bridesmaids I have my cousin whom I grew up with, 2 great friends, and 2 aunts. I decided against having one after discussing with my fiancé the situation and we agreed its best not to designate that to one person. My two friends have both been close to me in different parts of my life and each has their own type of friendship with me if that makes sense? They both mean the world to me and I would hate to make one upset! I know not choosing one was upsetting but now I’m on to a toast. I was going to ask each bridesmaid if they wanted to do one and go from there. I think I’ve upset one for not designating the toast to one person. I’m trying my hardest to be fair and not upset anyone but it’s becoming hard! Anyways, is it normal to have more than one person toast and is it normal not to have a MOH?

I think you need to be careful with selecting more than one. I was recently at a wedding where every member of the bridal party made a toast, and it was literally over an hour of toasts. By the end, I really just wanted to leave the entire wedding because I was annoyed from sitting in a chair for so long, and frankly, no one really cares that much about the toasts when they last so long.

I am not a fan of champagne and I know my family is not either. I do not plan on toasts and think with too many it can become a bit boring.

I don’t see the problem in it. If people didn’t want to help me celebrate my life, which happen to include my friends who happen to be expressing their friendship to us, then they should have stayed home. If t does bother you maybe 1 could do a reading at the ceremony and the other the toast.

@Clewis0507: I am not having an Maid/Matron of Honor and I don’t plan on asking any of my BMs to make a toast. Its bad enough for me to be the center of attention I don’t need a ton of speeches about me. No one wants to hear more than 2-3 toasts I feel. I think its just going to be Future Brother-In-Law (best man), my dad, and maybe Future Father-In-Law. No one else!
