Call in to speak with the host
Everyone knows that raising a glass is requisite behavior at a wedding reception. But beyond that, the whos, whats and hows of this time-honored tradition are a bit of a mystery to most guests. “It’s the best man who proposes the toast to the couple. And he’s really the only one,” explains Confetti Radio host Debbie Quain. “He needs to get the attention of the guests once they’re seated. But I wouldn’t suggest clinking a glass, just use the microphone. Or if it’s small setting, say something like, ‘Can I get your attention, please, ladied and gentlemen?’ And remember: all that the person who’s being toasted needs to do is sit down and smile. He shouldn’t pick up his glass and drink. You never drink in a toast to yourself.”
It's good to talk.
