Wedding Toast Ideas

Does this sound like you when you don’t have any wedding toast ideas?
“I just don’t know where to start.”
That’s the most common phrase I hear from my clients when they are trying to write a wedding toast. The best place to start is by telling stories that show what a great person the bride or groom is and what he or she means to you. Plus, some stories will naturally be funny or sentimental. You don’t need to worry about memorizing groan-worthy one-liners.

When you sit down to write your toast, use the following prompts to generate stories that you can tell. You might not have something for each one, but go with the ones that seem the easiest. Then tell those stories as part of your toast.

Use this list to generate wedding toast ideas:

1.    One moment when he/she most impressed me was when…
2.    He/she was really there for me when…
3.    My favorite memory of him/her was when…
4.    When I first met him/her…
5.    I am grateful that he/she is in my life because one time…
6.    He/she got me out of a tough situation when…
7.    I can never forget the time when he/she…
