"I'm Not A Writer" In the immortal words of The Rock... IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOU'RE NOT A WRITER! You knew that advice was coming. The truth is, that your toast isn't about being a polished writer, or speaker. Your toast is about showing that you care and connecting that message to the audience. As is written in the book, your job is to honor, entertain and educate/inform. I've seen really polished speakers at weddings, and while we're at it, at business conferences and and workshops, deliver speeches that fall flat because they are boring or insincere. If you don't see yourself as a "writer," just focus on being entertaining and sincere. That's it. And you'll succeed. Use a framework like WT101
It's Wedding (Prep) Season! Bring on the bridal shows, wedding conventions and 2020 wedding details! While it's true that it's never too early to start your wedding planning (some people might argue pre-engagement is too early but you'd be surprised), couples who have Spring, Summer and Fall weddings still have time to nail down many of the logistics. No flowers chosen yet? Not a big deal, but get on it soon. No honeymoon booked? You've got time but have those conversations now, and make sure to use credit card points or miles wherever you can. You still probably have time to open a brand new card to get a huge bonus to pay for your flights (that's what we did). Or, if

The Notes App A major self-gripe of mine is that I write things I want to remember in about a hundred different places. In notebooks, on the back of brochures, at the top of printed out articles, on manila file folders, in a word document that becomes impossible to find when I need it, in the middle of a stack of papers, and on and on. And, arriving at the point...notes for toasts, speeches, lyrics, blogs, social media posts, etc. HOWEVER, in the past two years, I was introduced to the magic of the iPhone NOTES APP and it was an incredible game changer. If that's the dumbest, most Captain-Obvious thing you've ever read, we at Wedding Toasts 101 Worldwide salute you
Mapping Out A Memorable Toast Where do I start? It’s such a simple but often debilitating question when approaching a project. This isn’t limited to only writing a speech/toast, but it applies here FOR SURE. You may have heard the excuses, or even had them creep into your own mind. Things like: I’ll be starting as soon as things slow down at work I’m not going to force it; I’ll just wait till I’m inspired The wedding isn’t for another month, so I’ll be fine I’m not a good writer It’s not a big deal so what’s the point of putting in effort? If you’ve consumed anything from us before, you know that couple you’re toasting deserves more effort than a last-minute
10 Phrases To Please Avoid Saying During Your Toast, For Everyone's Sake When it comes to wedding toasts, there are a handful of phrases that have become so common that it's painful to hear them roll off the tongue. And it’s not the fault of the speaker, necessarily, if they haven’t ever been told otherwise. Renowned sales trainer David (not Adam) Sandler once said something to this effect: “You can’t get mad at someone for doing something you never told them not to do.” That’s how I feel about the following list. The problem is that these quotes have become crutches to lean on, because they’re commonly repeated, they’re easy to say, and are low hanging fruit when searching for a cheap
