Toasts
for
Your Wedding Receptions

Wedding Toasts are a very interesting concept. The wedding day is quite likely the most important day in the life of the couple. If there is a formal ceremony, there are several other people involved - parents, bridesmaids, the best man, relatives, and guests. The wedding day is the occasion for them to make a toast to each other. Given below are quotations that you can use in wedding toasts.


Wedding Toast, From the Bride to the Groom or From the Groom to the Bride

Here's to the prettiest, here's to the wittiest, Here's to the truest of all who are true, Here's to the neatest one, here's to the sweetest one, Here's to them, all in one - here's to you.


To the Groom

Here's to the groom, a man who keeps his head though he loses his heart.

To the Bridesmaids

A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Here's to these beautiful bridesmaids.

We admire them for their beauty, respect them for their intelligence, adore them for their virtues, and love them because we can't help it.

To the Bride

May she share everything with her husband, including the housework.

Wedding Toast, From the Groom to the Bride

She knows all about me and loves me just the same.

Wedding Toast, From the Parents of the Bride and Groom

It is written: when children find true love, parents find true joy. Here's to your joy and ours, from this day forward.

May the time you have together for the rest of your life, be as passionate as your heart felt the first time you said to each other I love you. May you always yearn for the touch of each other's hand and the look you see when only the both of you know what each other is thinking. Without saying a word. May the two of you live in love for as long as you want, but never want for as long as you live.

To the Gathering

Let us toast the health of the bride; Let us toast the health of the groom, Let us toast the person that tied; Let us toast every guest in the room.

To the Bride and Groom

Look down you gods, and on this couple drop a blessed crown.

Remember that if you ever put your marital problems on the back burner they are sure to boil over.

Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we married.

My greatest wish for the two of you is that through the years your love for each other will so deepen and grow, that years from now you will look back on this day, your wedding day, as the day you loved each other the least.

It don't matter where you get your appetite, as long as you eat at home!

May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

Marriage: A community consisting of a master, a mistress, and two slaves - making in all, two.

May the roof above you never fall in and may you both never fall out.

To the lamp of love - may it burn brightest in the darkest hours and never flicker in the winds of trial.

May 'for better or worse' be far better than worse.

The man or woman you really love will never grow old to you. Through the wrinkles of time, through the bowed frame of years, You will always see the dear face and feel The warm heart union of your eternal love.

May you have many children and may they grow mature in taste and healthy in color and as sought after as the contents of the glass.

A good marriage is when both parties think they got the best end of the deal!

May the time you have together for the rest of your life, be as passionate as your heart felt the first time you said to each other I love you. May you always yearn for the touch of each others hand and the look you see when only the both of you know what each others thinking. Without saying a word. May the two of you live in love for as long as you want, but never want for as long as you live.

If you want to be happily married; And keep love in the loving cup; When ever you're wrong admit it; When ever you're right, shut up

"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person." ~Germaine Greer
