    My dad did a welcome speech (mom would have cried too much if she went up haha!) And then my husband's parents gave a speech! After dinner we had MOH, Best Man and my husband's sister (also a bridesmaid) do a speech and then we had a final one later in the evening!

    Everyone was under 5 min each and it was perfect! Everyone did such a great job too I loved every minute of it!

    I have my MOH, Best Man, my parents and FH Parent’s all planned for. They get about 7 minutes (per the four groups, so 3-4 mins each as a couple).

    If they don’t want to, the others can take more time. If not, we will give more time for people to eat.

    My fiance and I will say some words and my two sisters (one is the maid of honour, other is a bridesmaid), my fiance's brother who is the best man, and then most likely my parents. My fiance's parents likely wont want to give a speech as his mom had the stroke and she is paralyzed on her right side and she is still learning to talk again. His dad has never been much of a talker and I don't think this will be the day he plans on giving a toast!

    We will not be having toasts- FH and I will say a few words of welcome and thanks after our entrance, and from there greet guests individually. We have let all of our close famiy and friends know that we would prefer they not give toasts.

    We haven't even thought about it! My FH or dad will most likely do it
