A dear friend recently tied the knot with her sweetheart and had a great wedding party. As is the tradition, many family members and friends got up to make the customary wedding toast. I don't recollect any of the toasts, except the one made by my friend's uncle.

Having drunk himself silly, he stood up on unsteady feet, and went on to give the audience a hilarious account of his love for his niece. He also went on to make rude jokes at the cost of the groom and his family, thereby incurring the animosity of many in the crowd.

The last thing you want is to be caught on the wrong foot when asked to make a wedding speech. When you are invited to a wedding, make sure to prepare a good wedding speech. If you are called upon to make a speech, don't hesitate to say a few kind words.

Wedding toasts or wedding speeches are interesting concepts. The wedding day is the most important day in the life of the couple. Anyone can make a wedding toast -- parents, bridesmaids, the best man, and close relatives. By raising your glass to make a wedding toast, you wish the couple a bright future and good health.

If you want to make great wedding speeches, use these quotations to embellish it. They will linger in everyone's minds like sweet fragrance.

        The warm heart union of your eternal love.


      • May you have many children
        and may they grow mature in taste
        and healthy in color
        and as sought after
        as the contents of the glass.
