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!
