"And then..."

Let me be blunt. Limit the number of toasts. Ask your friends what they hate most about weddings, and I bet the number one answer will be too many toasts that are far too long. Nobody gives a shit or understands the private jokes besides you, the groom and the person giving the toast. This is not your Bat Mitzvah and it is not appropriate for your friends to ramble on and on like a 13 year old. Remember my entry about taking care of the guest? Well, this is a big one. Your wedding day is lovely, but it’s an all day commitment.  When guests are finally able to sit at their tables, they want to eat. Sure they want to toast the bride and groom, but filling up an hour with shit nobody cares about makes people angry. So, put a cap on it. Limit the number of toasts and the time they get to speak.
