One of the jobs you inherit with the toast making is the responsibility for being the spokesperson for the crowd and telling the bride and groom (and their families) how honored you are to be at the party that celebrates the bride and groom’s marriage.
This doesn’t need to be long and drawn out, but it should include thanks for more than just the party although that should be there as well.
Tip: Here are some things to be grateful about as you compose the thank you part of the speech.
- Thanks for the honor of being asked to represent all their wonderful friends.
- Thanks for having been a friend for such a long time.
- Thanks for the opportunity to meet their other friends and your partner’s family.
- Thanks for the privilege of witnessing their wedding ceremony and being inited to support their wedding vows.
- Thanks for the swell party.
That ought to get you off on the right foot!
