If you have been selected to give a toast at your friend’s wedding, you definitely want to make this a very special moment of this huge event. And while there are surely a lot of things you want to say about the bride, groom, their relationship, and how amazing their future is going to be, it is also important to remember that there are things that should NOT be said in a wedding toast. What are they? Read on and find out more.
Things That Should NOT Be Said in a Wedding Toast
- Remotely hinting at the Exes. You shouldn’t mention the Exes during the wedding toast. Not even if what you want to say is that they were absolutely horrible and that you are happy the bride and groom finally found each other.
- That awkward phase one of the newlyweds finally outgrew. This is not the moment or the place to start talking about that weird EMO phase the groom went through in the 10th grade. Keep this for the more intimate parties.
- How drunk the groom or the bride got in college. Again, this is not the right moment for this kind of story. Even more so considering their families will be attending the wedding.
- That inside joke you always share with the bride or groom. Yes, it may be terribly funny, but not for someone who doesn’t get the “inside” part of it. Sure, it is perfectly fine to say an anecdote or two. Just stick to something people will actually be able to understand. Focus on something that doesn’t embarrass the bride or groom in any way.
