Take a deep breath, smile, raise your glass and go forth with one of these sample wedding toasts:
Let’s drink to love, which is nothing
Unless divided by two.
May your love be as endless as your wedding rings.
May your hands be forever clasped in friendship
And your hearts joined forever in love.
To love – the greatest pleasure in life.
A toast to love and laughter,
And happily ever after.
May the rocks in your field turn to gold.
To your coming anniversaries – may they be
Outnumbered only by your coming pleasures.
Here’s to the health of the happy pair;
May good luck follow them everywhere;
And may each day of wedded bliss
Be always as sweet and joyous as this.
From Shakespeare (King Henry V, Act V):
God, the best maker of all marriages,
Combine your hearts in one.
From Poet Ogden Nash
To keep your marriage brimming,
With love in the wedding cup
Whenever you’re wrong, admit it;
Whenever you’re right, shut up.
From the Bible (Matthew 6:21):
For where your heart is,
There is where your treasure is.
