How to Write a Memorable Wedding Toast

“May your love always be added? May it never be subtracted. May your household multiply and may your hearts never be divided!”

Trying to figure out how to write a wedding toast may be a really nerve-wracking and scary undertaking. Wedding toasts may either be humorous, memorable, and utterly lovely, or they can be a train catastrophe in the making that people dread. There is no assurance—until now—that the remarks during the reception would fall into the first category, despite every couple's wishes.

Marisa Polansky and Kristine Keller launched Speech Tank to provide fully unique, personalised toasts for each event in order to fight those terrible speeches. And what better occasion is there to seek the advice of professionals than your closest friend's wedding? Polansky and Keller got down with us to give us the lowdown on crafting an absolutely amazing speech. Your audience will clamour for an encore with their assistance.

How to write it

Your toast during the wedding should be heartfelt yet brief. Verify that your essay has a beginning, middle, and finish.

Even though each person's remarks will be particular to them and their connection to the couple, we have provided a generic format to get you started.

Rejoice for the pair. Tell them how excited you are that they are getting married and how much it means to you to be there.

Identify yourself. Make careful to introduce yourself to the audience before you begin your speech since not everyone will know that you met the bride or groom at the fourth-grade space camp.

Tell a (selected) tale. Choose tales that all match a topic and reinforce your point when you're crafting your speech, advises Keller.


You may not know them both well, but you shouldn’t focus all of your attention on your friend and ignore their new spouse. “Even if you’ve only met your friend’s partner once or twice before, find a way to include him or her in your toast,” Polansky says. “Tell the story of their engagement or share something your friend told you about them that proves what a great partner he or she is.” You can also download our app from the playstore or visit our website.
