I'd Like to Propse a TASTEful Toast!

Toasting the bride&groom is a wedding tradition and expected of you if you happen to be in the wedding party. Add some more bubble to your bubbley with some tips and delicious additions to a tradition that we don't want to see fizz out:

On the tip of the lips....
(some advice on how not to spill out your speech)

*Do not wing it
make note cards, pratice, write it out....just like in school, remember?

*It's a toast...not a ROAST
a toast is made in HONOR of a person (or couple) not to embarass them. So, if you wouldn't be honored if the same speech was made about you, then it may need some revisions.

*Shorter is Sweeter
You wouldn't want to listen to yourself talk for more than a minute or two, so why make everyone else?

*Hold on to your glass
Alcohol will calm your nerves, but too much will make you babble over your bubbles so limit the pre-toast intake.
