I will be giving a toast at my brother's wedding. Is it appropriate to write down the toast and to read it at the reception? Also, what should I say? I am not really thrilled about the woman he is marrying.
It's best to write down the toast beforehand, but memorize it for the reception. The toast should be short, about 3 sentences. Be sure and make the toast sincere, nice, and upbeat. One common sentence used in wedding toasts is, "To John and Jane for a lifetime of love and happiness".
