Wedding pro Laurie Arons offers finer points on the toasts
DON’T drink when people are toasting you
With all the pre-wedding events (engagement parties, showers, the rehearsal, etc.), there will likely be numerous toasts – and it’s a common misconception that everyone – you included – should raise a glass. When the toast is in your honor, you’re not supposed to take a sip yourself, says Laurie Arons, a wedding planner and founder of San Francisco-based Laurie Arons Special Events. (Joining in is like singing “Happy birthday to me!”) Instead, stay seated with a smile, and then politely thank the toaster for the kind words.
