Classic Cheeky Wedding Toasts to Enliven Traditional Speeches
So… you’re extra special to the “soon-to-be-wed’s,” and now you’ve been asked to give a wedding toast! First off: Congrats! It’s clear that you mean a great deal to the couple, and not just that, they trust you to get up there and speak on their behalf in front of all of their very nearest and dearest! Gulp! No pressure or anything!
The most important thing to know about wedding speeches is that the very best ones are both heartfelt and humorous, and possibly the most important thing is that they don’t run on too long! While you might want to do a dive deep into your own memories of and feelings about the couple for the heartfelt bits, zingers and jokes don’t necessarily come naturally to all of us.
So, to help you out in the laughs department, we’ve collected some of our favorite funny wedding toasts and marriage quotes we’ve come across in the MANY weddings we have attended! Feel free to borrow them with great abandon, mix them up as needed, and add a little spark of you to them!
And, remember, a long winded heartfelt tribute works way better recorded in the wedding card, than it does in front of the whole reception, who might not be in on all the inside jokes and stories you share with the couple.
