Giving A Toast Like Famous People Do

Submitted by James Nardel  l  June 06 2006  l  Viewings: 4747

 
While wedding toasts are very common, it can be difficult to give a great
toast if youve never done it before. Sure, you see the movies where toasts are spoken as if they are poetry, seemingly with no forethought or effort. You might find it difficult to do this, which is why you should give a toast like the famous. Be prepared! Even mega stars such as George Clooney who just found out he will be hosting Brad and Angelinas wedding come prepared. Sure, he is the typical alpha male that seems relaxed and ready for anything, but do not kid yourself into believing that he will be able to host the wedding and give a toast without some planning! There will be plenty of people at Brad and Angelinas wedding as well as any other upcoming celebrity wedding that will have had some help in writing their toast for the famous couple!
Do Some Research
Search your library or even the Internet for some great quotes on weddings to
sort of incorporate into your speech. You dont have to do something overly
tacky or sentimental if that is not your personality, but there are some great
sentiments that can help you express your thoughts, feelings, and happiness for
the new couple. Most famous people have toasts and speeches prepared for them,
and when you do some research you are basically using something old or something
youve found elsewhere to really help you say what you need to say in an elegant
way! Unfortunately, most of us do not have script writers on hand to help us
write a toast, so the best thing you can do is look up some great toasts that
have been used in history.
Use What You Know
If you know that the couple really likes a certain poet, look at some of the
poems by the poet, and see if you cant somehow incorporate a line or a thought
of the poet. This is what many famous people do because it shows that they
really thought about the couple when planning their toast, instead of just
writing something really generic. Using what you know is always the best idea,
and if you dont know much, well then you just have to sort of wing it, but
using sayings from history or from famous authors or other celebrities is a
great idea. Its very hard to find actual celebrity wedding toasts that have
been used in the past because these things are usually kept private, but look
for sayings on love, marriage, and living a happy, healthy life.
Some Ideas
A couple of ideas are written below to help you start thinking in the right
direction. Remember that toasts usually are a bit silly, so get in the right
frame of mind, and start planning how you will give your celebrity-esque toast!
Below are two commonly used toasts that have undoubtedly been used for
celebrities past and present.
Idea #1: Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.
Idea #2: Seek a happy marriage with wholeness of heart, but do not expect
to reach the Promised Land without going through some wilderness together.
These ideas should give you some idea of what you are aiming for. Remember
that even the most practiced celebrity plans for any and all public appearances
and speaking, so plan for yours to make sure that your thoughts come out as well
thought out as they should be!
