I am a little clueless about who should give toasts at the reception. I have heard that there are certain people that should, or just a certain number of people on behalf of the bride nd then the groom.
I need some help!!

It’s completely up to you! My husband and I did, along with both of our fathers, the best man and the maid of honour. We did speeches before dinner and had an open mic during dinner which no one ended up using.

Who do you *want* to give toasts? We had 4- both Dads, Bridesmaid or Best Man, my two MOHs did one together, and Darling Husband and I did a brief thank you. We did speeches during the meal so it didn’t take away from dancing.

We just had the best man and maid of honor give toasts.. and we left it up to them. I didn’t want to force anyone to do it. It can be uncomfortable for people.

He’s having the best man and I’m having my maid of honor and brother do a toast. They will probably bounce it off of each other and it’ll be hilarious. I’m looking foward to their toast.

We will probably have both parents speak because they both are hosting ( definatly brides parents ), bestman, maid of honour and finally groom and brides thank you speech 🙂
Sounds like a lot, but they will all hopefully be short and sweet!

Seems to be the best man and maid of honor as well as at least the bride’s father, but you can have both dad’s, all parents, or really whoever you want speak. I was in a wedding where the Maid/Matron of Honor was too uncomfortable to speak, and I”m like family so I did the speech instead. I’ve been to them where all parents spoke as well as bridal party and at my brothers they had two moh’s and two best men who spoke plus both dads. We had my Maid/Matron of Honor, the Best Man, and my dad. I also said a few words to thank everyone for coming.
It’s up to you!
