    This is what we kind of have planned for the wedding reception speeches. What do you think?

    1.Grace before dinner


    2.Francis’ parents toasting the uniting of the two families

    3.Heather’s parents toasting us as a couple

    4.Francis' sisters toasting Heather to in a welcome to the family

    5.Heather's sisters welcoming Francis to the family

    6.Francis toasting Heather

    7.Heather toasting Francis

    8.Francis and Heather toasting both sides of the family

    9.Anyone else welcome to toast Francis and Heather

    Is this alright? We don't have bridesmaid or groomsmen. We don't plan on having a MC, instead, we will have the programs sitting underneath the menues at each place setting.

      We didn't plan any speeches. Whoever wanted to get up and say something did so ... but that was the extent of it for us and it worked out well. Some said a few words at the rehearsal dinner, some at the reception and others who don't like public speaking (like my family) didn't say anything, which was fine too.

          Great- thanks ladies. We weren't planning on having anything formal like speeches, but, once again, family and friends started asking about speeches and which ones they are suppose to give. :)

            I think this is great! You are prepared girl! Unlike me who was too focused on everything else to even think about speeches. I did give one at our AHR but it didn't have the same effect as in Mexico.

                  Sounds good. Sometimes couples have some additional toasts after diinner to break it up too
