be the one who everyone is looking at, you’ll be the one whose every groomsman

will have tears flowing when you get done anyway. So the key here is to stay
level. Start out with a sweet nod to your bride buddy and her lucky catch. Thank

about the crazy jobs like filing her rough feet when you say this part. Just
Step 2 for the world’s best bridesmaid toast- Dessert First with Sweet Stories

humor will keep the guests entertained. Childhood stories and cute anecdotes are
good here. Keep it short and sweet, and then move into your big finale.
