Hi kurtg,

Congratulations to the couple, and to you, you lucky dog, you get to
make the toasts! :-) I'm going to provide a smorgasbord (following the
after-dinner theme) of options, as obviously, I don't know your
relationship with the bride and groom, or whether you're more
comfortable with funny, sentimental, or straight-ahead-type toasts.
Second, this is obvious personal preference. I supplied some toasts
that *I* personally wouldn't mind giving, but my recommendation is you
go straight to the linked source and find something *you're* going to
be comfortable with giving...

First, here's some overall tips on toasting, that you might find

"Tips For the Perfect Toast: If you'll be proposing a wedding toast,
be sure to: 1) stand to deliver your toast, 2) maintain eye contact
with the bride and groom as you deliver the toast, 3) keep the toast
between 3 to 5 minutes long so you won't lose your audience, and 4)
use personal anecdotes to spice up the toast. Feel free to use humor,
but end the toast on a serious note."


I liked the "" site quite a bit. One of its more
unique features is a free "Toast Generator" that allows you to build
your own toast, selecting from "serious" to "funny" phrases.  Try it

They also have some toasts ranging (in my opinion) from strange (using
toliet paper as a prop?) to nice at...

A good grouping of love/marriage toasts is at the site...

The site also provides a listing of "classic" toasts
at... can pretty much ignore the "from <blah> to <blah>" or "before
wedding" "after wedding" notations.  Almost any of those toasts could
be adapted by anyone for anyone.

I also liked a group of toasts I found at...

...especially this one...

"...We can all see that you’re madly in love.  That’s definitely the
challenge -  to find someone with whom you want to spend the rest of
your life. But the trick and challenge I want to propose to you is
that you set out
with the goal of falling a little more in love every day.  So that by
the time
you’re eighty you’re so in love that you wobble when you walk..."

There's also a nice one there, supposedly adapted from an Apache

Finally, returning to, if the couple and/or
acquaintances happen to be fans of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show",
you might want to try the idea given here, IF you're sure everyone
involved will a sense of humor.
