Now that you’ve got some good stuff written down, let’s switch to your opener for a bit.
How To Write Your Opening
The first words are the hardest, and the most memorable for the guests. Start by introducing yourself, then keep their attention by saying something interesting right up front.
Quotes and humor work well to catch your audience, but if humor isn’t your style, don’t feel pressured to start now. Remember to stick with something you feel comfortable with.
As for quotes, you can find many of them visiting our Famous Wedding Quotes page. Be sure to pick a quote that is relevant, because any old quote might miss the mark and make your audience wonder what you meant.
If you can’t find anything you like, skip the quote and use your own words. Or,IDoWeddingToasts.com has a free bonus gift of great Openers and Closers when you try the Instant Wedding Toast Templates.
And if nothing else comes to mind, use the old standby, “Hi I’m (your name) and I’m (Bride or Groom’s name) Best Man/Maid of Honor/Father. I don’t want to do a lot of talking tonight, but I do have a few important things I need to say.”
