In today’s episode, I share about a kind of big talk many people, speaker or not, are asked to do at some point in their lives. And that is a wedding toast.


When someone asks you to give a toast at their wedding, it can feel natural to move into a place of fear. After all, you don’t want to mess up someone’s big day. However, just like any talk, you have to remember that it's not about you.


And when you reframe your thoughts in this way, giving that wedding toast, or any talk, becomes much easier. 


In this episode, we’ll explore:

  • The first thing you should think about when someone asks you to give a toast at their wedding
  • How to alleviate your worry and concern (and the couple’s) about the toast you’re going to give
  • Where to begin in writing your wedding toast and how long it should be
  • The things you should never do during your toast
