"May these rich blessings be your due...
A wealth of friendships, old and new,
quiet nights and busy days, time for prayer and time for praise,
some service rendered, some solace given,
and gentle peace with God and heaven."
"Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss within the cup,
And I'll not look for wine. --Ben Jonson
"May your wedding days be few and your anniversaries many."
"I drink to the general joy of the whole table."
Shakespeare, from Macbeth
"May thy life be long and happy,
Thy cares and sorrows few;
And the many friends around thee
Prove faithful, fond and true."
"Never above you. Never below you. Always beside you."
Were't the last drop in the well,
An I gasp'd upon the brink,
Ere my fainting spirit fell,
'Tis to thee that I would drink.
"Every day you look lovelier and lovelier, and today you look like tomorrow."
"Let's drink to love, which is nothing - unless it's divided by two."
Long life and happiness - for your life will be my happiness
To the lamp of love - may it burn brightest in the darkest hours and never flicker in the winds of trial
Live life to the fullest - remember, this is the first day of the rest of your life
Here's to the bride. May your hours of joy be as numerous as the petals of your bridal bouquet
May your love be modern enough to survive the times and old-fashioned enough to last forever
"Here's to the groom, a man who keeps his head though he loses his heart."
Here's to love, laughter
and happily ever after.
As (Groom) and (Bride) start their new life,
Let's toast the new husband and wife!
"May you grow old on one pillow."
"Here's to the bride and the bridegroom,
We'll ask their success in our prayers,
And through life's dark shadows and sunshine
That good luck may always be theirs."
"May your joys be as deep as the ocean,
and your troubles as light as its foam."
