HELP: WHAT MAKES FOR A GREAT (OR TERRIBLE) TOAST AT A WEDDING?

  1. I have a best man speech to give in a week. Any advice? What have you seen (or done) that worked really well or totally bombed?
  2. I was just at a wedding where everyone gave great toasts. Loved hearing the best man talk about when he first met the bride and why he thought she was the right woman for the groom. Very charming.

  3. This is very specific, but my sister is a huge Titanic fan. So, when I gave a toast at her wedding I closed it with asking everyone to raise their glass to "making it count" like Leo does in Titanic. I don't know if anyone else understood the reference, but she LOVED it, still talks about it years later. So, idk? Fulfill a fantasy? Is this dumb?
