Wedding Toasts – What To Drink (#tequilatoasts)

Wedding Toasts – What To Drink (#tequilatoasts)

Comrades, the wedding toast revolution has begun. Wedding speeches no longer need to be concluded with a sip of Champagne. These days, toasts can be a hell of a lot tastier!

(*Of course, if you’re looking for more than ‘advice’, check out all the different ways the Speechy team can help you write & deliver a great speech. Or check out our new AI-powered team member, SpeechyAI.)

#TEQUILLATOASTS – The Idea

A #tequilatoast isn’t just about ditching the Champagne (ok, Prosecco for you cheap lot at the back), it’s about the attitude of tequila. It’s about creating a memorable moment as opposed to just doing what’s expected and reciting the usual clichés.

It’s being a bit daring, possibly even, a little bit naughty. It’s having a massive smile on your face and spreading that to others. It’s ensuring a great speech isn’t let down by a boring toast.

Like every aspect of the day, your wedding toast should be a true reflection of you as a couple.

#TEQUILLATOASTS – What to Drink

Well, we’d highly recommend tequila. There’s certainly plenty of sophisticated flavours out there to keep even the most discerning mother of the bride smiling, whether it’s a caramel, cinnamon, chocolate or lemon flavour you opt for.

Of course, a #tequilatoast has many cousins. Here are some options to get you thinking and your tongue wet…

THE SHOT 

Will always add a bit of a rock n roll vibe. Whisky, Goldschlager or Jaggermeister. If it’s a destination wedding, check out the local liquors (warning, some are to be avoided at all costs!)

THE COLOUR-COORDINATED COCKTAIL 

Think about how pretty you can make the table!

THE TEETOTAL OPTION 

Teetotal weddings are becoming more popular and a great option for couples who want to remember every minute of the day! Chai tea will add a hearty glow to everyone’s cheeks.

THE CRAFTY CHOICE 

Lots of couples are choosing to get hitched in distilleries or breweries. Why wouldn’t you want to make the most of your venue and tuck in?

#TEQUILLATOASTS – Do Us A Favour

A cool little idea; create a proper moment with your #tequilatoast by getting personalised shot glasses for your guests. We found some on Etsy. Surprisingly affordable and a favour your guests might actually use.

#TEQUILLATOASTS – What To Say

A #tequillatoast isn’t just about what you drink, but the spirit of what you say.

The one rule is your #tequilatoast must be completely original. It doesn’t need to be complicated or overly clever but it has to be lovingly crafted by you (or at least some toasty experts like us). Here are some examples – ‘Please raise your glass to…

  • …a marriage that will hopefully have the passion of Taylor & Burton, the longevity of Elizabeth & Philip and the bank balance of Kanye & Kim. To happy unions’ Father of the bride speech
  • …Tim Berners-Lee. Inventing the internet was always going to be cool but surely, its biggest achievement is helping me find you. To Tim Bernes-Lee.’ Groom speech (based on the couple’s internet dating history
  • …my mum and dad. A couple who prove that love can last long enough to still be dancing together 35 years later. To long lasting love.’ Bride speech

''I had an unbelievable experience working with Speechy. From the moment I got in touch with them I felt supported and come the day of my best mans speech, it went down a storm with a standing ovation.''
''Speechy deserves more than 5 stars. (They) produced a factual, funny Mother of the Bride speech with just the right amount of emotion..... it was ingenious. Thank you so much for the wonderful & priceless memory of having delivered my speech at my daughter’s wedding and nailed it ... and got a standing ovation too. My children were very proud of me, including my new son-in-law! ''
''These Guys are tremendous! One main point is that its not their speech - its yours! This is because it is based totally around what you would like to say, but its the spin that Speechy puts on it, that is the magical bit... Ordinary words become a hilariously entertaining event. There were giggles, applauds, laughs, tears, cheers and standing ovation – all in that order!''
''Feeling anxious or stressed about an upcoming speech? Look no further than Speechy... I just delivered my Best Man speech this past weekend and absolutely crushed it. I was nervous leading up to the moment, but while delivering my speech, I didn't want the experience to end, the room was hooked, and laughing at every joke. Worth every penny... Thank you!''
''Navigating through the wedding industry often feels like you’re stuck on a conveyer belt....Speechy is the complete opposite. They treat you and your wedding like you’re the one and only. I couldn’t recommend them more.''
''Heidi and the whole team at Speechy are an absolute gem! In addition to their talent and extensive experience in speech writing, Heidi had an impressive way of listening to me talk about mine and my partners personal anecdotes, before putting it in such a funny and beautiful way that it felt as though she’d known us for years.''
