Quotes for Wedding Speeches and Toasts
You can be humorous or quote from the Bible
By Tiesha Whatley
Writing a wedding speech or toast can be difficult. Some people have a hard time finding inspiration. That is where quotes come in. They can be a nice addition to the toast or speech and they can get your creative juices flowing to write the rest.
Funny quotes are always welcomed in a wedding speech or toast as long as it is humorous and not offensive. Be sure to not embarrass the bride or groom for the sake of a laugh. "Marrying for love may be a bit risky, but it is so honest that God can't help but smile on it."--Josh Billings.
Marriage is the joining of two great loves, so quotes referring to love will be appreciated by the bride and groom. "Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart."--Marcus Aurelius.
Quotes from the Bible
Quotes from the Bible work well, especially during religious ceremonies. "Who so findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the Lord."--Proverbs 18:22.
Quote the Couple
Do you remember what the bride or groom said when they met? Adding this quote in a speech or toast can be sentimental for you and the couple.
What was the first thing you said when the couple got engaged? This is another sentimental way to add something personal in your speech or toast.
