Chances are, if you're a VIP wedding guest - a close family member, best friend or one half of the newly hitched duo, for example- you'll be giving a toast at the reception. Sometimes when the stars align and the perfect amount of pre-speech champagne is poured down your throat the right words come to mind without a hitch, but more often than not, it's tough to get a wedding toast exactly right. With that in mind, here are a few of our favorites from Paul Dickson's aptly-named Toasts to get you started and inspired:
"Here's to the happy man. All the world loves a lover." [original]
"Love doesn't make the world go 'round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
"A toast to love, to laughter, and happily ever after." [original]
"Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be ..." [original]
