Speak From the Heart
Even if you've taken our advice and written and practiced your toast ahead of time, you always want to make sure you deliver the material emotionally and earnestly. Reading from a piece of paper will always disengage you from your audience, so if you stick to the sentiments rather than the script, chances are, you'll end up regaling guests with a much more natural version of the toast you wrote and practiced. Just look everyone in the eye and speak from the heart, and you can expect a successful toast.
