Krista was up first. She did a great job. Krista has known me for more than a decade and definitely has some good dirt on me but thankfully she didn't bring up any embarrassing stories which I know she has a plethora to choose from! Krista, much like myself, is not a big fan of public speaking so her speech was short and sweet, which was perfect since most guests hate to listen to speeches that drag on and on.
I wish I could remember exactly what she said but of course it's all a blur now. I do remember her talking about how good husbands will come home and make you a peanut butter and jelly sandwich when you are hungry, which was actually quite fitting for me and made me laugh.
Next up were the boys. Now this could have turned our family friendly event into something inappropriate but thankfully both boys kept their speeches G rated and didn't reveal anything that would warrant an annulment or being disowned from his family. The main part I remember was when Bryan talked about how he knew that Kristian was totally whipped for me after we met by the way he would gush about me on the phone...okay I may be paraphrasing but that's the gist of it.
We didn't have any of the family members give toasts. Kristian's dad gave a very nice speech at the Rehersal dinner the night before. We didn't want to break up the momentum of the evening with a lot of long, drawn out speeches but it was nice having 3 of our closest friends say a few words to help us celebrate.
Who did/will give a toast at your wedding?
