More and more common nowadays is her Matron or Maid of Honorstanding up for a similar toast. Lets here it for the girls!

    Dining Begins

    Dinner. A moment to refuel before tearing it up on the dance floor! A traditional serveddinner consists of 4 courses with Salad, Appetizer, Main and Dessert. However for thoselooking to reduce time spent at dinner, consider removing one course or opting for astation style dining experience which tends to move faster and all guests to enjoy asmuch or as little as they desire. Other options include working events or dancing inbetween courses to keep an exciting flow going.
