Do the groom's parents usually make a toast at a wedding reception?

The first toast is done by the best man, always. Thereafter, any toast can be made and they should be considered a compliment of love by any who make them, that is as long as they are tactful. Traditions will be different depending on the country you live in but in the UK, it's not usually expected that the Groom's Parents will make a toast. The order for UK wedding speeches is normally, Father of the Bride, Groom then Best Man.
