Monday Morning … two August 17, 2009

Thank you so much for your emails for our MONDAY MORNING series.  Here is our first question …

“I was reading your blog, and I have a question for Monday Morning! I am the Maid of Honor at my best friend’s wedding…..which means I must give a toast! There is so much to say but I have no clue how to start and what to include/not include in it! Do you have any suggestions on what I need to do?

Thanks so much!

Sara, Tompkinsville, KY”

Sara … great question.  This is a great honor and your opportunity to send good wishes to the happy couple as well as give the guests a little bit of insight into your best friend.  First, you could say something about what an honor it is to be able to share in this experience with your best friend since you’ve shared so many other life experiences together … and how happy you are for her.  Then maybe a very short … “who would have thought” snippet about some of the things you all got into as friends … before she met her Prince Charming!  Then end with a heartfelt congratulations to them for finding one another and wishing them well on this wonderful next part of their life and asking everyone to raise their glass to this fabulous couple.  I’d say 1.5 – 2 minutes is plenty of time … it’ll seem like 30 minutes to you!  You’ll do great … after all, she’s your best friend and you’re doing this for her.

celebrate your best friend’s love …
