Requirements for a Wedding

A toastmaster is someone who is responsible for the announcement of speakers at your wedding and the sole individual who announces any special toasts you wish for throughout your wedding day. Your first actual meeting with a toastmaster normally takes place around 3-4 weeks before your wedding date. During your meeting with a toastmaster you will discuss the details of your wedding such as that days schedule, who will be attending the wedding and any specific tasks you wish the toastmaster to complete. At the end of your meeting you will be provided with a written confirmation of everything you have discussed.
