    Parent Toasts? or toasts in general? We stuck to the Maid/Matron of Honor and Best Man only to keep things rolling.

    We skipped the Garter/Bouquet toss, just figured it would slow down the party and I didn’t really want Darling Husband digging under my dress.

    Not married yet, but we won’t be doing the bouquet/garter toss, no anniversary dance or dollar dance either. The bouquet/garter toss, I just don’t like and I never even heard of the the other two until I came to the bee.

    We wont be doing most of the things on this list! haha.

    We will do a first dance, and a mother/groom dance. If we decide to have cake (still toying with the pie idea) then we may have the cake cutting. Am I boring??!

    we didn’t really do any of those, except cut the cake!  our “first dance” was when we finished eating and figured if we wanted to get people to dance, we better get out there.  my almost 3 year old niece danced with us, and wouldn’t let go of my hand all night.  the whole bridal party danced with us, too, and by the end many of our guests made their way onto the dance floor, as well.

    I wasn’t really interested in those “spotlight” moments.  I just wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and socialize, not sit and wait for us to put on a show.

    The only things we did have of those are cake cutting and the MOH/Best man speeches. But then our whole reception lasted about 2 hours 🙂

    The only things on the list we DID do were the cake cutting and parent toasts.  No dancing, no hurling of florals or undergarments, and we didn’t have a wedding so no chance for MOH/BM toast.

    We didn’t do the garter toss as Darling Husband is really shy, so we didnt have the person who caught the bouquet dance with the garter person. We didn’t have an anniversary dace (though we did have a fathers day dance after midnight) or a dollar dance. We did have everything else though.

    We had a first dance, father/daughter dance, toasts, and cake cutting.  We really tried to keep the pageantry to a minimum so as not to disrupt the flow of the party.

    The only thing I am planning on doing from the list is cutting the cake. We’re not dancers so we’ll be playing games and watching fireworks to celebrate. Fiance and I will be saying the only speeches/ making the only toasts (unless someone else surprises us, but I doubt it as they seemed relieved to be off the hook).

    We didn’t do bouquet or garter toss or anniversary dance or dollar dance. Once the reception started I just wanted to keep it rolling and get to the party.
