Wedding quotes for toasts
Below is a typical order for wedding toasts after the wedding dinner. The example toasts consist of great quotes, surrounded by friendly, cheering words.
- Best man toasts the bride: "To you Caroline, a thing of beauty is a joy forever. Cheers!"
- Bride toasts the groom: "Here's to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend. The first handsome, the second full of joy, the last ever faithful." A more formal alternative would be "two souls" quote from Aristotle (above).
- Groom toasts the bride's mother: "Behind every successful man stands a devoted wife and a surprised mother-in-law. I would see you surprised! [smiles]"
- Bride's father toasts groom's parents: "[Smiling] I'll need some help from Shakespeare. [Fairly serious] Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair reception, where we lay our scene, from mutual liking let us break to new joy."
The last toast is a paraphrase of the prolog from Romeo and Juliet about the two warring families—the Montagues and Capulets. This gives the toast a neat frisson.
