Show Notes

A couple weeks ago, a soon to be maid of honor asked me to do an episode on speeches and toasts.  Oh boy did the memories terrible and fabulous moments come flooding in.  Next call was to Lance, "Lance. Someone needs our help.  We need to give the good bad and ugly of wedding toasts and speeches."  Here's the thing, Between us we have over 45 years of wedding receptions.  We have seen and heard it all.  From dad's who break out a guitar and sing, to drunken uncles who never should have had the mic, to sisters who gave the most epic rap performance I have ever seen.
This episode will you help you decide who to ask to speak at your wedding, how long they should speak, what should and should not be included, and much more. And if you're going to be giving a toast or speech - we have insight for you too!

175 questions to know you are prepared for your wedding day.  A workbook to ensure every detail has been planned & finalized. On sale now!
