Writing the Emotional Toast “You know, someone once told me that... true love is... the soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another. And I think that that's a very rare thing in this world. And I think it's something to be valued.” Yeah, I’m talking about that level of emotionality for your toast. However, I recommend making it authentic to you and not recycled from a movie. That was Claire (Rachel McAdams) from Wedding Crashers, of course. It was just a movie, but that line saved her ENTIRE maid of honor toast from what began as a biting speech that was a little too far on the side of the roast line. So, back to you. What you’ve signed up to read
“HELP!” - Your Last Minute Toast If the wedding is less than a week away, and you’re reading this knowing you have to give a toast but have yet to write one word, do me a favor: Take a breath. Okay, now here’s what you can do. At a 30,000 feet above-the-ground view, pretty much every movie follows a similar structure. Movies (and plays, for that matter) take place in three acts. In the first act, characters are introduced, a plot or central thesis begins to formulate, and you move toward the meat of the story. The second act often brings the movie’s main conflict (i.e. a major challenge, a problem that needs solving, a journey, adventure, etc.) and the character(s) set
Full Toast Sample (Can You Name The Movie?) You won't find this sample wedding toast in the upcoming book. It lives as an "outlaw" toast from the publisher, so I decided to include it here in its entirety. Hope you enjoy it, and perhaps take something helpful away for your next toasting opportunity. P.S. send me a message if you can name the movie.... For Mia and Michael: They say love is blind, and while they both do own glasses, I’d say that in Mia and Michael’s case, love is more…unexpected, a little clumsy, a lot like a fairy tale, and as clearly true as I’ve ever seen between two people. My name is Lilly, Mia’s best friend, and one of the
In Homage to the Bride: How to Heat Up, But Not Burn, Wedding Toasts By the time the big day arrives, the Bride might think she’s exhausted her list of worries. Between the bride and groom, they’ve arranged for the transportation, finally finished the guest list (until cousin Ronny brings his buddies for the free alcohol), taken care of the out-of-towners, and finished the bridal party roll call before the ceremony. Everyone is accounted for, though one groomsman is already sweaty and smells like Irish whiskey. And how has a bridesmaid misplaced her flowers within 10 minutes? Oops, false alarm. Found them in the ladies’ room. Minor hitches aside, for the first time in months, the bride (and groom) can take a deep breath
Writing The Hilarious Toast It’s been said that “Death is easy, but Comedy is hard.” And it is TOUGH to be funny. But at the end of the day, a lot of us are looking to laugh while we’re sitting in the audience at a wedding, listening to friends, family and loved ones toast to the married couple. Since you’re still reading, it sounds like you can relate. And since you don’t want to contribute to a long line of unfunny, boring, droning, and sometimes even cringe-worthy wedding speeches, let’s see if we can help you out. So, follow me from “why” we want to be hilarious during our toasts to “how.” Humor, like a gazelle to a lion, is a moving target.
Sitting Down to Write the Damn Toast When it comes to sitting down to write, action is much more important than thinking about it, so I’m going to keep this short. The easiest way for you to actually park yourself into a seat to write your toast is to get yourself into “The Zone.” Yes, it’s one of those things that’s simple but not easy. If you’ve ever stayed up most of the night to finish a long project, you’ve been in “The Zone.” If you’ve ever defeated a video game from start to finish in one sitting, you know it. If you’ve ever successfully mapped out your family’s calendar for a busy week, you’ve been there. And if you’ve ever intended to
