The way we (Photographers) prefers speech would be to do it all at the same time, before or after the meal . The reason being..
This way your reception table will also still be neat and clean with no left over food and drink in your shots.
It's best to have speeches done before the meal, while you have everyone attention, all guests and children are sit and present at the table.
Once the speeches are done everyone will feel more relax and they can really enjoy the meal and drink freely without worries about being too drunk for their speech.
Also its often that our (Photographer) meal is likely to get serve last. Of course, despite the indigestion and as fast as we could stuff the food down we still need time to eat. During meal time, we often used this opportunity to change batteries on camera, and setting up for you reception etc.
So have your speech before your meal is best, alternatively after works just as well - this way we won't missed a thing. Please don't have your speech scatter after every meal.
When it comes to this sweet tradition, we've got some fantastic suggestions that will make it even more memorable.

If the package you bought is not enough to cover this, No worries you have an option to extend this on the day. We will be there as long as you need us, so just let us know.
How does this normally work? I often ask my couples to stay in one place and switch into different poses while the sparklers and firework go off. Light at night can be little tricky so minimising movement really helps!
Get the longest Sparklers available. I would highly recommended the 18 inch ones as this will give us a longer window of opportunity for photography!
With sparklers* You don't have to wait until dark! Dim light work very well for these shots and your guests are not too intoxicated.
Don’t forget to bring a wind-proof lighter. Imagine trying to light the sparklers on windy day?
Remember to switch positions...change from looking at each other, to looking away, and even kisses!
