‘I Do’ Salut

A newly released book makes writing wedding toasts a breeze

Writing a wedding toast can be a bit overwhelming, if not outright daunting. Should it be funny? Deep and meaningful? Over the top or simple and to the point? So. Many. Questions. Thankfully, a new book by Pete Honsberger, entitled “Wedding Toasts 101: The Guide to the Perfect Wedding Speech” (Adams Media, $13), will help you nail your toast. This 128-page lighthearted book offers building blocks on how to write a great speech, anecdotes and advice from past weddings and an easy-to-follow checklist — all with a dash of humor to take the stress out of speech-writing. It makes a great gift for any future maid of honor, best man or anyone else planning a wedding toast. Available at Garden District Book Shop, gardendistrictbookshop.com
