Top 5 Wedding Toast Tips For Engaged Couples
One of the biggest wedding trends of 2016? Toasts! Lots of toasts!!! We’re seeing couples wanting anywhere from 6-10 toasts at their wedding, whereas in the last few years, we’d average between 2-3 toasters. With that in mind, we wanted to give our engaged couples our Top 5 Wedding Toast Tips to help them navigate the toasting process (remember this toasting story?).
Wedding Toast Tips From the Pros
DJ Josh B and DJ Shawn, two of our associate DJs who have performed over a few hundred weddings between them and can offer tons of Wedding Toast Tips, delve into this topic on our latest video blog. Please know that we want to be sensitive to your vision for the big day, while at the same time, allowing you to leverage our years of experience. With that type of collaboration, you’ll be setting yourself up for a fantastic wedding reception. We had a recent wedding where the couple “knew their toasters” and estimated that the 10 they had on the schedule would only take about 5 minutes. We tried to encourage them with some of these tips, but at the end of the day, they wanted to proceed having all 10 in row. After 45 minutes from toaster #1, we had time for 1 dance song. The venue had a strict cut-off time which required us to turn off the amplified sound after that first dance tune. Instead of a nice landing into the Grand Exit, it was a harsh brake. We did our best to hype up the “after party” scheduled to take place at the local bar after the reception but you could see the disappointment on the guests’ faces not to mention the bridal party and our bride/groom. We have put together this video with the hope that no couple or a couples’ crowd has to go through something like that.
