Hi everyone, I need some help deciding the order of the toasts. We are going to do them during dinner, once every table has been through the buffet. My fiancé and I are paying for everything so we are the hosts. I have seen a lot of conflicting advice on the Internet about who speaks and in what order.
Yesterday my dad and I were talking about the wedding. According to him, he starts off with a toast to the bride and then my FH will answer him with a toast. This seems super traditional to me, though I'm not opposed to doing it this way. I hate public speaking and then I don't need to speak except for thanking people for coming.
We also want to let the BM speak, my MOH if she wants, my mom, and my FILs. Is this too many? Ideally we would keep it short, I think my dad would likely be the longest as he enjoys giving speeches.
Thanks for any tips!
