Wedding Toasts and Speeches
The Upper Hand
The following tidbit began a wonderful and personal toast to the bride and groom from the bride’s brother: “John, take Emily’s hand and place your hand over her’s. Now, remember this moment and cherish it… because this will be the last time you’ll ever have the upper hand!”
As the vicar wed my cousin, he produced a roll of white toilet paper and said “Let us all hope and pray that your married life is like this toilet roll – soft, strong and ever so long.”
Never Lie, Cheat, and Drink
May you never lie, cheat or drink. But if you must lie, lie with each other. And if you must cheat, cheat death. And if you must drink, drink with us for we all love you and wish you both the love and happiness of which you deserve.
Let us toast the health of the bride, let us toast the health of the groom, let us toast the priest who tied. And I’d personally like to toast every guest in the room.
Swear, Steal, Lie
May you swear, steal, and lie.
Swear by all that’s good and true.
Steal away your cares and sorrows.
And lie in the arms of the one you love.
Short and sweet
May you both live as long as you want and never want as long as you live.
May the love you express to each other today, always be the first thoughts during any trying times in the future.
Love that Grows
I see the love you both have in each other’s eyes and as your love grows for one another, may you look back on this day and know this is when you loved each other the least.
Leave It To The Expert
I’ll be toasting the bride and groom with Shakespeare’s sonnets. 18 for her, 53 for him, 116 for them both. I’m AWFUL at speeches, so I’m letting the expert speak for me.
Remember the Love
Remember the love you feel today. Look back on it daily and measure how much it has grown.
May the Best of Your Yesterdays
Be the Worst of Your Tomorrows
