Toasting the Wedding Flutes
“Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a silver sixpence in her shoe.”
Weddings are wonderful events. The preparations to make the big day a reality can be quite stressful and difficult. But even then, nothing could ever compare to that magical moment when man and woman say their “I Do’s” and officially become husband and wife. But alas, things do not end there for there is still the reception to consider.
Weddings are as old as time. And with that, it involves certain traditions. One tradition that is virtually used by everyone regardless of religion and ethnicity is perhaps the toasting of wedding flutes. The toasting activity may seem like a small little thing when you compare it to all the other stuff that should be taken care of such as the venue and date. Nevertheless, every wedding should never miss a toast activity. Thus, the role of the wedding flutes should not be taken lightly.
The flutes set the stage and play a big role in the toasting ceremony. The drinking from the glass also symbolizes the sealing of the promise of a lifetime of love. Furthermore, it is also one of the keys in order to attractively decorate the guest tables.
You may be wondering what caused me to bring this subject matter up. Well, my dear friends and readers, my wife and I have decided to finally have that dream church wedding of ours and I simply want it to be perfect leaving no details to chance. We had our civil wedding last year and I wouldn’t love her any less if we didn’t have a church one. I am sure she feels the same way about me. But there will always be that part of us that longs to make that perfect little dream of a wedding of ours a reality.
We are quite a traditional couple, my wife and I. As that old poem goes, we would probably go with the something old and something new theme and will incorporate various wedding traditions as well. As for the toast, we wouldn’t miss it for the world.
