How to Make a Great Wedding Speech

Sample Wedding Toasts

Best Man Wedding Toast to the Groom

Here is to my friend. Today I had the honor to stand beside him on this most important day, as he has so often stood by me in good times and bad.
I wish him and his lovely bride nothing but happiness, prosperity, and good health for as long as they shall live.

Maid of Honor Wedding Toast to Couple

It can be hard to share your best friend with someone else, but I have been thrilled to share (Bride) with (Groom.)
The love you show to each other is inspiring and beautiful and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow.
I am honored to be able to raise a toast to my wonderful best friend and her new husband.
To (Bride) and (Groom)!

Bride Wedding Toast to Groom

To my wonderful new husband, who has shown me what love really is.
Who is the reason for my happy days and the comfort in my sad ones.
Who cheers my successes and comforts me in my failures.
I am so proud to be your wife. I love you. Cheers!

Groom's Toasts - From Groom to Bride's Parents

I raise my glass and ask you to join me in a toast to the parents of my lovely bride.
They must have done a lot of things right to raise such a beautiful and gifted daughter as my Bride.
I promise to live up to the trust they have placed in me, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart.

Bridesmaid Toast to Couple

To (Bride) and (Groom), may your winters be full of twinkling white lights, may your springs be full of freshly picked flowers,
may your summers be full of bright blue oceans and may your autumns be full of warm cups of tea.
May each day you spend together be full of the small things that makes life wonderful.

Father of the Bride Wedding Toast to Bride

Let us raise our glasses and toast the happy couple.
The bride has been like a ray of warm sun light on my soul from the day she was born.
Now, she begins a new life and there will be another man to whom she will turn for love and protection.
But I want her to know her father will always be there for her. Cheers.

Sister of Bride Wedding Toast to the Couple

I've been so fortunate to spend my life with such a wonderful sister and I'm thrilled today to add a new brother to our family.
May the love you share today grow throughout the years. Welcome to the family, (Groom's name).
Please raise your glass to my sister and my new brother in law.
