Wedding Toasts


The wedding was delightful.  You love the bride and groom and know they’re going to make the best couple ever!  So here you are at the reception and what? ” Spotlight’s on me? A toast?!? Um, ok, sure – I’ll be delighted – er…”

Our five favorite wedding toasts to keep in your pocket (just in case):


An Old Irish Toast

“May you be poor in misfortune, rich in many blessings, slow to make new enemies, and quick to make good friends.  And may you know nothing but happiness from this day forward.”


Wow them in another language

“Cento anni di salute e felicità !” which translates into “100 years of health and happiness!”


Poignant is always good

“May the best of your yesterdays be the worst of your tomorrows!”


If you’re good at memorizing…

“May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rain fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
And may you be in Heaven
a half hour before the devil knows you’re dead.”


A group favorite

“May you live each day like your last, and live each night like your first.”
