Wedding toasts are a great way to wish the new couple well, but it can be
hard to get it just right if you’ve never done it before. If you feel a lot of emotion about the union, it may be even more difficult to get the toast just right. Keeping it simple really helps, as well as keeping it short. Remember that a toast is simply a way to let the new couple know that you are excited for them, and that you were happy that they made you a part of their day. The more you try to put into a toast the more complicated it can be, so don’t try to pack too much into the toast.
Below is a very simple toast that you can use regardless of how well you know
both of the bride and the groom. This is also a great way to make a toast when
you really want to wish the couple well but you aren’t too sure what to say!
“First, I wanted to say congratulations to Bill and Nancy! I am so happy
for the both of you and I know that today is the first day of what will be a
very long marriage. I also want to thank the two of you for inviting me and
making me a part of your big day. I know that there will be many more
celebrations of your love and your marriage in the future!”
Below is a more intimate toast that you will find works well for close
friends and family and will help you convey a bit more personal emotion.
“Congratulations, you two! I know that everyone is saying great things to
you, but I had to get up and really express how happy I am for you. I know
that both of you have been looking forward to this day for quite awhile, and
I have to say that it couldn’t have been more beautiful. I know that you
have a lot of great plans for the future and I can’t wait to sit back and
watch them unfold for you. Congratulations, Bill and Nancy!”
As you can see, you can keep it really simple or you can add a bit more
personalization to a toast. Usually a toast is just a few minutes long, so you
don’t need to get into long stories or convoluted hopes for the new couple.
Instead, keep things short and sweet but be sure to convey your happiness for
the new couple. If you don’t know the personalities of both the bride and the
groom well, keep humor limited and clean, just so that you are sure you don’t
