I was best man at a wedding recently, so that’s why you haven’t been reading much about me the last few days. Public speaking is not exactly my thing and giving a toast is doesn’t get more public than that.
The wedding itself was less than 25 people and kept to a budget of $1500 if I had to guess. It was actually the perfect day (except for yet another day of the rain in Boston.) I was quite jealous that my fiancee and I are going to have 175-200 people at a cost of 12-15 times that. We are getting some help from our parents, but we will still foot most of it by ourselves by the time we are done.
