From How to Write (and Deliver) a Killer Wedding Speech:

Congratulations! Your: (circle one) brother/sister/cousin/daughter/best friend is getting married, and you’ve been asked to be a member of the wedding party. It's a huge honor, and you couldn’t be more excited for the couple.

Then it dawns on you as you have a silent meltdown: you have to give a toast at the wedding.

It's a crucial job. Whether you realize it yet or not, for two to five minutes (please no longer guys, but we'll talk about that later), you will be the sole entertainment at the most important event for one of the most important people in your life.

It's pretty cool, actually. You control the mood at a huge party. You can make them laugh, you can make them cry, you can make them cheer (and the best speeches manage to do all three). Or, of course, you can crash and burn with a series of inappropriate jokes told to a silent and awkward crowd of the bride's 300 closest family and friends, including Gerty, her 92-year-old grandma.

From Quicklet on Joseph Devlin's How to Speak and Write Correctly:

In the introduction to How to Speak and Write Correctly, Joseph Devlin writes that his book is not a grammar manual full of rules. Devlin wrote the book for ordinary people who want to speak in a proper manner.

Devlin writes some general guidelines for grammar and style. He begins with an overview of the parts of speech and formation of sentences and paragraphs. Some of his most helpful tips are those on common pitfalls. He reminds the reader that even the best writers make mistakes. Using examples of famous authors’ mistakes, Devlin shows how to avoid circumlocution, split infinitives, and redundancy.

The chapters on writing letters and writing for newspapers have obsolete information. However, these chapters serve as amusing artifacts of the days when calling cards were still common, and women were guardians of the home.
