Ladies and Gentlemen.  My name is Brent, and on behalf of John and Jane, I would like to thank you for attending this blessed event today! I promise to keep my words brief, as I know we’re all here to witness the spectacle that is John dancing.

Jane and John have each walked many miles to be here together today, and this wedding is a joy to behold. I can speak for everyone in this room, when I say to you both that we wish you all the happiness that you deserve. We are so glad that you have found one another, and this day will serve as a reminder that the best years for you both are yet to come.

It’s been said that if marriage is to be a success, one should begin by marrying the right person. It’s obvious that each of you is indeed marrying the right person today. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a couple who complement each other as much as these two do. John is an intelligent, soft-spoken, organized and witty man. He is very well respected in his field of ____________________ [Grooms Occupation], and he’s just a generally all round nice guy too! Jane is a dear ___________________ [Your relationship to the bride] who has been on a spiritual journey to better herself and I would say she has had a remarkable quest. I enjoy watching Jane and John challenge each other to continuously be better.

They are very supportive of each other, and while they are fiercely competitive people, they are never competitors. They are two people with a wonderful amount of synergy and they are both a joy to know. They say that there is no surprise as magical as finding your life’s mate. You two must feel the magic, because it seems as if your happiness emanates from you on this very magical day! I really feel that I would be remiss if I did not just give you some advice.

So I asked a few of your family and friends what advice you can give Jane & John to ensure a long happy marriage. I had some great responses for you both. Primarily, though, John, they thought it best to direct the advice at you. Never go to bed angry………….always stay up and fight. Always remember the three words to end all arguments…….”You’re right dear”. Keep the lid down, and The best way to remember her birthday or your anniversary is to forget it once. Let’s raise our glasses as we toast this couple:

May you both live as long as you want, And never want as long as you live.
