Man Toast #1
On behalf of (Bride
& Groom), I'd like to thank everyone for attending this
beautiful wedding today. My name is (Best
Man's name), and I am the Best Man. I have to tell you, once
(Groom) met (Bride), I knew it was all over for him - he was
completely smitten. He walked around in a daze with a goofy look on
his face and seemed to spend a lot of time on the phone, talking in
hushed tones. But seriously, I have never seen (Groom) so happy and
content. I wish you both the best of luck and a life together filled
with health, happiness and joy.
(Bride & Groom)!
Best Man Toast #2
I'd like to propose a
toast to the bride and groom. May today be the beginning of a
wonderful new and long-lasting chapter in their lives, and may they
always love, honor and cherish each other, just as they do today.
Best Man Toast #3
As the best man, it's
my turn now to make a toast. My name is (Best Man's name), and I've
known (Groom) since fourth grade. Wow. That's a long time. Back then
we were more interested in transformers than girls. Then it was
sports rather than girls. But, sure enough as the seasons change,
there came a time when we were more interested in girls than
anything else. After watching (Bride and Groom ) fall in love, I can
say, now I know all those years of transformer and sports training
were worthwhile - (Groom) will always have the transforming ability
to say 'Yes Honey' and the Olympic endurance to say 'Yes Honey' for
year, after year, after year. Here's to the Bride and Groom!
Best Man Toast #4
I thought I'd write
the world's greatest Best Man toast. I spent hours researching on
the Internet, seeking wedding poetry, vows, Tibetan wisdom journals,
and even ESPN, looking for the critical insight that only a Best Man
can provide. Alas, all to no avail. So all I can say is this. I
cried when (Groom) told me that he was going to ask (Bride) to marry
him, and the next week I cried when I heard the answer was yes. My
heart bursts with joy, because (Bride and Groom) are truly made for
Best Man Toast #5
(Groom) and I roomed
together for two years of college, and were best friends for all the
years since then. Wow, what a surprise today is. The way (Groom)
studied in college and never dated, I had my doubts I'd ever see
this day! Let's toast the merits of (Groom) learning
how to date
at the tender age of 24! (Bride), my advice is lock all the books in
the basement until you've achieved your goal of three
Oh, and take good care of (Groom)!
Best Man Toast #6
There's been much
clap trap about "I'm not losing a daughter but gaining a
son-in-law." My sympathies to (Name), the
Father of the
bride, for trading his daughter for (Groom) as his
son-in-law. I spent four years in college with (Groom), and I assure
you, I know who's getting the better end of the trade!
Best Man Toast #7
(Bride and Groom) -
I would like to begin with a speech. A wise person once told me that
magic happens at the most unexpected moments. I would have to
disagree. Today has been planned for months and months, and it was
still filled with magic. I've known (Groom) for many years, and I've
never seen him happier than when he is with (Bride). And I haven't
seen (Bride) without a smile when she and (Groom) are together. This
magic that makes them happy today is love. Love, however, isn't
always simple. You will fight and disagree, but as long as you love
each other this magic will never die. May the rest of your lives be
filled with magical moments. Congratulations!
Best Man Toast #8
Good Evening. My name
is (Best Man) and on behalf of (Groom and Bride), I would like to
thank you for attending this blessed event today! I have the honor
of acting as Best Man tonight, and am thrilled that I am with these
two wonderful people as they begin this new chapter in their lives.
(Bride and Groom)
have each walked many miles to be here together today, and this
wedding is a joy to behold. I can speak for everyone in this room,
when I say we all wish you the happiness that you deserve. We are so
glad that you have found one another, and this day is a reminder
that the best is yet to come.
(Bride and Groom)!
Best Man to the
everybody. My name is Tim, and I've had the pleasure of having Kevin
as my closest friend for seven years. I'm honored to be his best man
today, and I'd like to offer a toast to his beautiful bride, Alicia.
I'm grateful for the opportunity to be here to witness their union,
and I'd like to thank her parents, John and Alison, for their grace
in welcoming us tonight.
The first time Kevin
told me he was seeing Alicia, he didn't even have to tell me
anything about her--I knew this girl was different. I could
tell from the way his eyes lit up when his phone rang, and it was
her. Till that point, I'd never seen him get that excited about
anything except football! Then...Kevin started changing. All
of a sudden, he had a bounce in his step, a twinkle in his eye, and
grin on his face--and he always offered me the last beer instead of
hoarding it up for himself! Since he started seeing Alicia, Kevin
has been more considerate, thoughtful and motivated than ever.
Alicia, you have
deepened Kevin's appreciation for life in way I never could've
predicted. He is steadfast, honest and downright good-looking, and
you are his match in every way: dedicated, genuine, and beautiful,
inside and out. Thanks to your presence in his life, Kevin is not
only a better friend; he's a better person all around.
Let's toast to the
health, happiness and future of this amazing bride. To Alicia!
