Capturing the magic of the toast at your wedding reception

Apr 24, 2019

Aris Affairs Photography can capture the magical moments of your Prescott wedding and preserve your memories to last a lifetime.There are many magical moments at a wedding: when the groom sees his bride coming down the aisle, lighting of a unity candle, even the antics of a young ring bearer, or a flower girl dropping petals and picking them up again. Then comes the reception and more precious moments, namely the heartfelt toasts to the happy couple. Aris Affairs Photography can capture those magic moments at your Prescott wedding reception.

Some of the most eloquent toasts are emotional and sentimental, including those given by siblings or a parent. The purpose of the wedding toast is obviously to honor the newlyweds and wish them all good things for their marriage. But for those who are giving a toast, it can be a little uncomfortable. It’s a good idea to coach the best man or maid of honor and let them know how much you appreciate them being part of your big day.

The order of things
As tradition dictates, the best man is often the master of ceremonies, unless you have a DJ who is handling that duty. The order of toasting goes something like this:

  • The best man toasts the bride
  • The maid/matron of honor toasts the groom
  • The father of the bride or someone in that position toasts the couple
  • Any other parents of bride and groom toast the couple
  • Last but not least, the bride and groom offer a toast to family and friends

This is only a suggestion and the newlyweds ultimately have the final decision as to who gets the microphone. But it’s a good idea to give the prospective “toasters” enough advance notice so they can collect their thoughts or funny stories that they would like to share.

A wedding day is unlike any other day, and a wedding toast lasts only a few moments. Aris Affairs Photography wants to capture those moments for you in pictures. If you are planning your Prescott wedding, contact Aris Affairs Photography and let us turn life into art for you. Call us today at 928-642-4049.
