VSL// You’ll never have to be nervous at a wedding again

The ceremony is over, rings have been swapped, kisses have been made and now it’s time for the reception. There’s only one problem: You have to give a toast, and you’ve got nothing. No need to fear: A Web site called Charge Your Glasses is here to rescue you from that awkward silence by providing free, customized wedding speeches.

Whether you’re the father of the bride, the groom or the best man, the site allows you to conjoin prefabricated sections of a speech together to form something that would make a Wedding Crasher proud. For example, if you’re the father of the bride, you have the option to talk about your daughter’s birth with either a story of how she was named or a sports joke, which starts off with “Anna was born during the 1978 World Cup…” Well, O.K., maybe they aren’t all perfect, but consider it the perfect Cliff’s Notes solution to your public-speaking problem.
