Being tasked with giving a toast at any special occasion sends most people’s stomach in knots. With all eyes on you, the pressure is on to deliver poignant, well-chosen words. Next time you’re asked to raise a glass, make it memorable (in a good way, of course!) by following this five-step guide.

1. Set the scene by giving some background on your relationship with the person being toasted.

2. Share a funny, but meaningful anecdote.

3. Include a bit of good-natured teasing for comic relief.

4. Explain how everything finally came together.

5. End your toast with a nod of support and ask guests to raise their glass.

    I have always had fear of speaking in front of more than 5 people! I couldn’t even do a toast at my sisters wedding or at my brothers!
