All of these can happen at your wedding with Diane Warner's Complete Guide to Wedding Toasts, which features hundreds of sample toasts anyone responsible for delivering heartwarming words at a wedding can use. And this completely new edition includes: Special toasts by members of the family and the wedding party. Entire chapters are devoted to special toasts, including toasts by the best man, the fathers of the bride and groom, the bride's sister, the bride for her mother and the bride and groom to each other. Toasts with ethnic variations: A chapter has also been devoted to dozens of touching ethnic toasts, including a wedding toast inspired by an old Eskimo wedding prayer, a beautiful Scottish wedding toast and fifteen lovely, lilting Irish wedding toasts. This chapter also includes a list of each country's preferred toasting beverage. Toasts inspired by the classics: This chapter is filled with unique toasts inspired by Shakespeare, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Aristotle, George Eliot, and many others. Humorous toasts: The book wouldn't be complete without a chapter filled with humorous toasts, including charming anecdotes, limericks and one-liners.
