A Toast to the Happy Couple!

A Toast to the Happy Couple!

Giving a toast is, arguably, one of the most nerve-wracking roles you’ll have on a wedding day. Although it’s a huge honor to be asked to give a speech, having to wrap up an entire relationship into five minutes can be a little scary if you’ve never done it before! We’ve all seen the way toasts are normally done: the speaker stands on the side of the bride + groom, looking down at them and their notes, laughing and/or crying at all the beautiful words being spoken. While we do appreciate the more traditional way of setting up the speeches, at Bilski Productions, we pose your toasts a little differently! We’ll ask you to stand in the middle of the dance floor, instead of right next to the bride + groom. It may seem a little out-of-the-box, but the reason we do this is to avoid you looking down and the bride + groom looking up – creating awkward poses and an all around stiff feel. We want everyone to look perfect, and our way is sure to make you look like the rockstars you are! It may seem a little terrifying to stand in the middle of the dance floor with all eyes on you, but never fear! We’re here to give you some pointers on how to create the perfect speech – and how to own the delivery! Introduce Yourself and Tell Us How You Met the Bride + Groom There’s nothing more amazing than hearing the story of how you met your favorite people ever, like Matt’s brother did in his heartwarming speech from Sophia + Matt’s Soundview Caterers affair.

Alyssa and Michael’s Wedding at The Somerly

Alyssa and Michael’s Wedding at The Somerly

  Alyssa and Michael’s cake topper read, “it was always you” – and we can see why. This gorgeous couple had the most incredible celebration of everything they are when they’re together, and we couldn’t have loved being part of their amazing day any more. From Alyssa’s gorgeous bridal style (which she totally nailed) down to the tiny details of their day (like the little Fire Island Lighthouse), this garden style affair was an extraordinary expression of unwavering love between two people who couldn’t be more head over heels for each other. Alyssa’s wild and natural bouquet filled with the most perfect florals and her glittering manicure was the perfect inspiration for any bride who loves the simple and natural elements of wedding style, and we are so blown away with all of the thought that went into their special day. Congratulations to the happy couple, we are so happy your wishes came true!

Kelsey and Cody’s Wedding at Bellport Country Club

Kelsey and Cody’s Wedding at Bellport Country Club

  If there’s one wedding we will always remember as a sweet fairy tale, it’s Kelsey and Cody’s. Their super romantic day was filled with the most gorgeous and delicate details, and the personal touches scattered throughout the reception helped bring a warm familiarity to the room. Kelsey’s dress was absolutely stunning, with a gorgeous full bow and intricate beading on the back panel. It was one of the most unique gowns we have ever seen. When Kelsey walked down the aisle and a tear slid down Cody’s cheek, our hearts completely exploded. The love these two have for one another in inspiring {to say the least!}, and we are so honored that we were able to share in their #bestdayever! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
