How To Write a Memorable Wedding Toast

Weddings are a magical time. They are full of romance and laughter, dancing and celebrating. They are a great time to reconnect with old friends or family members, to make new friends, and to celebrate the joy and power of romance between two people willing to make a lifelong commitment.

The highlight of many wedding receptions is often the wedding toast. Funny stories are shared, words of wisdom are given, and the happy couple is honored. If you are the one charged with this responsibility, or if you are considering participating in this time honored tradition, here are some tips.

Guidelines

Typically those giving a wedding toast are very close in relationship to the Bride and Groom. In many cases, it is the best man and maid of honor that head up this responsibility. At some weddings, others are asked to give speeches or toasts as well.

At other weddings, as some people share, others feel led to join in as well. The first thing to consider during this special time of a reception is whether or not you know the bride or groom well enough to be able to make a meaningful toast. If you do not know them well, it is best to not lead in this activity.

Content

A good general guideline to remember is that the content that you choose to include in your toast should be appropriate for large audiences. Also be aware that this audience may include children as well as people who may not have the same sense of humor as you do. Do not use off-color jokes here, or quotes that include fowl language. Even if the bridge and groom may not be offended, some of their guest may be.

Also be sure that if you are sharing a favorite past memory of time spent with the bride or groom that it is appropriate to be told to a large group.

Cheers everyone!

Conclusions

When finishing up your wedding toast to the bride and groom, any people choose to close with a quote about love. An example might be the following quote from Simone Signoret, “Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.” You would end your toast with any final words and then conclude by saying, “to Charlie and Beth” but instead use the name of the Bride and Groom.

Giving your friends a wedding toast will be a special memory that you will all cherish for years to come!
