Wedding Toats: From the Best Man

Those who have both true love and true friendship have received the highest gift God can offer.
-- Anonymous

May you look back on the past with as much pleasure as you look forward to the future.
-- Irish toast

May you live as long as you want and want nothing as long as you live.
-- Traditional toast

Here’s to health, peace, and prosperity;
May the flower of love never be nipped by the frost of disappointment;
Nor the shadow of grief fall among a member of the circle.
-- Irish toast

A health to you,
A wealth to you,
And the best that life can give to you.
May fortune still be kind to you.
And happiness be true to you,
And life be long and good to you,
Is the toast of all your friends to you.
-- Irish toast

Cool breeze
Warm fire
Full moon
Easy chair
Empty plates
Soft words
Sweet songs
Tall tales
Short sips
Long life.
-- John Egerton

May the most you ever wish for be the least you ever receive.
