To the happy couple

‘Let’s hope that the two of you live as long as you like. And let’s hope you have all you like for as long as you live…’

‘I’m a person who likes to use simple words to say simple things. But just before I ask these fine people to raise their glasses to the happy couple, I’d just like to say: congratulations on the termination of your isolation. May I express an appreciation of your determination to end the desperation and frustration which has caused you so much consternation. It’s such good news that you’ve been given inspiration to make a combination to bring an accumulation to the population. Cheers To the happy couple!’

‘I know that, from this day forward, the best days of your past will be the worst days of your future. Together, you’re going to have the happiest life imaginable. To the bride and groom!’

‘Being a person of very few words, I give you the bride and groom.’

‘Here’s to the happy couple. Remember, you two, that you should always view your marriage as if it were a pair of scissors. What I mean by that is that you cannot be separated, even thought you’re often moving in opposite directions. To the happy couple!’

‘My advice to the happy couple is to live life as if today is your last day on earth together, and that when tomorrow comes it’s simply be an added bonus. Here’s to today and plenty more bonuses to come: the bride and groom!’

‘Just a quick word from me to the bride and groom. Here’s to the bride and here’s to groom groom, all newly wed. May all their troubles be light as bubbles, or the feathers that make up their bed!’

‘Here’s to the newlyweds. Let’s just hope, when push comes to shove that your ôfor better or for worseö turns out to be far better than worse.’

‘Here’s to love, laughter and happy ever after. As Rob and Julie start their wedded life, here’s to the fabulous new husband and wife.’

‘Here’s to the health of the bride. Here’s to the health of the groom. Here’s to the one who tied the knot. And to the rest of you here, who I haven’t forgot.’

To the parents/grandparents

‘Here’s to the few who made this crew. To the grandparents!’

‘To the greatest grandparents. I’ve got a feeling that you might be great‐grandparents very soon!’

To the bride from the groom

‘I’d like you all to fill your glasses and toast Mary, my bride and joy!’

‘With every passing day that I’ve known you, you’ve got more and more beautiful. But looking at you today, my darling, you already look like tomorrow.’

‘Here’s to you and here’s to me. Let’s hope we never disagree. Here’s to our families and our honoured guests. And here’s to you never wearing those horrid string vests.’
