Fiance' old grandma is hosting a dinner tomorrow for the 2 families, so she and everybody could meet everybody. We've already hung out with his parents, they're cool. No biggie, the back room at a moderately nice restaurant. Wedding is not til Feb. I was told fiance's Dad was going to toast the couple, and I should be prepared to toast them as well.

Whataya got?

and friends may go
and friendships peter out, you know
But we'll be friends until the end
Peters out or peters in.


And do it with your zipper down and your donger hanging out.

True Love is your soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another. And I think that that's a very rare thing in this world. And I think it's something to be valued, and I'm just really happy that my beautiful daughter has found it.

Congratulations Heaven and Winston.

sometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego and a couple of nude people jump out of your bathroom blindfolded like a goddamn magic show ready to double team your girlfriend.

once when I had to go up and speak. The ones who had seen the movie started busted out laughing..the rest just kinda weirdly looked at me.

Seems like a smaller, intimate setting so a short toast should work.

What's the one thing you think about when you think about them as a couple? It could be an emotion you feel, the time you realized they were good for each other, the time she told you how much she loved him, etc. Work off of that. Maybe pull in a story from her childhood or a story from your marriage/courtship to tie it together. Look backwards towards her life with you and forwards toward their life together. End it with a simple toast to their future happiness and success in marriage.

Whatever direction you go, stick with your voice. Are you funny? Tell a funny story and/or work in a punchline in the toast. Are you sentimental? Make it sweet and nostalgic. Etc.

You are father of the bride so you'll be judged on a favorable curve. Have fun. Make it from the heart.





Also, some pictures would really help us out here. Has she had the lingerie shower yet? Those might be most helpful.

Maybe just read the stats and tell them proud you will be of both of them if they can beat these odds and that you faith in them that they can. it would be very uplifting and romantic.


"According to the American Psychological Association, 40–50% of first marriages and 60–67% of second marriages end in divorce. However, some say that the divorce rate is closer to 41% for first marriages. In addition to divorce, 10–15% of couples separate but don't divorce, and 7% or so stay together but are unhappy."

Why geared towards a poem style? Is that proper toasting etiquette?

I just riffed mine as best man twice.

Easier when drunk, but not 7spotted.

stumble to the lectern, babble some nonsense, tell an inappropriate ghey joke about you future son in law, then go pass out at your table. Families love when that happens.
