Raise Your Glasses!
Every wedding warrants a number of toasts…..to the bride, the groom, the families, the bridesmaids. Whether you compose your own or refer back to the classics, there are a few things to mindful of when making a toast.
Be sure that your glass and the glasses of your guests are filled. You will want to raise your glass with your right hand, approximately shoulder height. Now make your toast, and drink up! If you have difficulty writing a toast of your own, we have collected some below to give you some ideas. Clink! Clink!
"Grow old with me!
The best is yet to be,
The last of life,
For which, the first is made."
"A thing of beauty is a joy forever."
Here's to you, my beautiful bride."
"Were't the last drop in the well,
An I gasp'd upon the brink,
Ere my fainting spirit fell,
'Tis to thee that I would drink."
"Here's to the happy man: All the world loves a lover."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"To every lovely lady bright,
I wish a gallant faithful knight;
To every faithful lover, too,
I wish a trusting lady true."
Sir Walter Scott
"And nature swears, the lovely dears
Her noblest work she classes, O;
Her 'prentice hand she tried on man,
And then she made the lasses, O."
"There is nothing nobler or more admirable than when two people
who see eye to eye keep house as man and wife, confounding
their enemies and delighting their friends."
"Two such as you with such a master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar"
"Look down you gods, and on this couple drop a blessed crown."
"The man or woman you really love will never grow old to you.
Through the wrinkles of time, through the bowed frame of years,
the warm heart union of your eternal love."
Alfred A. Montapert
"Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love,
and they blossom when we love the one we married."
