End Your Toast With a Quote

As Mignon McLaughlin once said, ” A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” _____ and ______, may you spend the rest of your life falling in love, over and over again.
Finally, I’ll leave you two with my take on a quote from E. Joseph Cossman: “The best way to remember your [anniversary] is to forget it once.” Cheers to a long and happy marriage for you guys, may every day be better than the last!
Instead of offering more bad marriage advice, I’d like to share a special quote with you all. As Dave Meurer once said, “A great marriage is not when the ‘perfect couple’ comes together. It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.” That being said, you two are about as close to perfect as they come. Congratulations!
As you two prepare for a beautiful future together, I want to send you off with some words of wisdom from Pearl S. Buck: A good marriage is one that allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.” Let’s raise our glasses and toast, to a marriage full of love and growth for many years to come!
Some people think that marriage is just a piece of paper, but I think Martin Luther summed it up perfectly when he said “There is no more lovely, friendly, and charming relationship, communion, or company than a good marriage.” As long as you remember the promises you’ve made today, there will be nothing more meaningful to you. Congratulations, you two!
Andre Marois once said, “A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short.” Let’s toast, to a long marriage full of long conversations with the one you love.
Of all the things I admire about you two, I’m still amazed at what a great team you are. To quote Fawn Weaver, “The greatest marriages are built on teamwork. A mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration, and a never-ending portion of love and grace.” Keep that in mind, and you’ll never go wrong.
As you guys know, I’ve never been great at public speaking and don’t have much of a way with words, so I’ll leave you with this inspirational quote from William Lyons Phelps: “The highest happiness on earth is marriage.” You guys are the best couple I know, and you deserve every bit of happiness you experience together. Here’s to you!
After a speech full of funny jokes, I just have to end with this quote from Will Ferrell: “Before you marry a person, you should first make them use a computer with slow internet to see who they really are.” _____ and _____, here’s to many years of love, patience, and complaining about crappy wifi together!
Audrey Hepburn once said, “If I get married, I want to be very married.” To me, that means that once you’ve said “I do,” it’s your job to love one another as truly and deeply as you can. I wish you all of that, and so much more. Congratulations!
As Woody Harrelson once said, You know you are in love when the two of you can go grocery shopping together.” From your first grocery trip to your 50th anniversary, I know you two will be happy as can be. Cheers!
