Composing and Delivering an Anniversary Toast
Good wedding toasts are sincere, personal, and heartfelt. The toast should be appropriate for the event. Think of things you admire about the couple and your favorite memories of them together.
Consider how their love has inspired you. What do you hope and wish for the couple? Make the toast about the couple, not you.
Practice saying your toast in advance of the occasion. Make eye contact with the couple as you speak. Smile and speak slowly. Be confident and sincere.
