Keep toasts brief and to the point (prep them in advance)

Bridal toasts are an important part of every wedding reception and when those speaking plan accordingly, their prose can have a lasting impact.  It is suggested that a toast does not run too long as it can put a drag on the evening.  A good toast is based on quality, not longevity.  It is suggested that anyone who takes the mic cap their speech to a max of two minutes and withhold longer narratives for a different setting,  perhaps during the rehearsal dinner.
