Picture this. It is your son’s wedding, and you are about to raise a toast to the bride and groom. As you clink that champagne flute, you realize you are tongue tied! If you are a Dad who will not take a chance like this at a wedding, here are words to help you raise the all important toast at the celebrations. Pick and choose the one that suits the mood, and the audience.
In lighter vein:
(Groom), take (Bride)’s hand and place your hand over hers. Now, remember this moment and cherish it… because this will be the last time you’ll ever have the upper hand!
For the literati:
May a flock of blessings light upon thy back. (Shakespeare – Romeo and Juliet)
In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Here’s to the happy man: all the world loves a lover.
For the mathematician:
May your love be added, may it never be subtracted, may your household multiply, and may your hearts never be divided!!
For the verse-atile:
May thy life be long and happy,
Thy cares and sorrows few;
And the many friends around thee
Prove faithful, fond and true.
Here’s to the happy couple – my you survive your wedding and still be in love
For men of few words:
May “for better or worse” be far better than worse.
