Ladies, It's Your Turn to Shine in the Spotlight!

As the Maid of Honor, it is your job to make sure the bride has "something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue"... but do you have a toast to the Bride and Groom?

Maids and Matrons of Honor are now toasting the Bride and Groom at the wedding - and they're doing it with spectacular results!

The Best Woman has stepped up to the plate, not wanting to miss her opportunity to say a few endearing words about the Bride. And they too, like the Best Men, have more than a little to say about their best friend... not to mention their remarkable talent of capturing the attention of the audience when they speak of life-time friendships, heartfelt moments and stories of life's lessons they learned from their friendship with the Bride.

Ending with a bit of inspiration and advice to the wedding couple, Maids and Matrons of Honor are being met with laughter, tears and roaring applause.

So ladies, you're about to be put in the spotlight...
Do YOU know what to say?

Sample Toasts

To the Couple

It can be hard to share your best friend with someone else, but I have been thrilled to share (Bride) with (Groom). The love you show to each other is inspiring and beautiful and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow.
I am honored to be able to raise a toast to my wonderful best friend and her new husband. To (Bride) and (Groom)!

To the Couple

Someone once said that in order to make a marriage work, there should be space in your togetherness. To be honest, I hope there is a lot of space in your togetherness because I don't want to miss out my weekly manicure appointment with (Bride!)

Seriously though, in times when you are together in the same room or across town or even the world, remember the love that you feel today and I know you will always be happy in your togetherness. To the Bride and Groom!

To the Bride

(Bride), we have shared so much our lives with each other. I am so honored to be sharing this day with you. Starting today, you will begin to share a life with (groom), but remember that I will always be here for you and always ready to stand up by your side. Here's to our everlasting friendship!

To the Groom

To (Groom), who through his love has shown me a different side of (Bride.) He has made her happier than I have ever seen her, and I can't wait to witness how your love continues to help her grow. I am so happy that she has you in her life. To (Groom)!

Additional Variants

To the Bride

As women we begin dreaming of our wedding day from the time we are very young. Today as I watched my best friend get married I knew that her dreams were coming true and can only dream that someday I have a wedding that is as beautiful as the one that has taken place before all of us today. More importantly, someday I hope to find a love that is as deep and as complete as the love that my friend has found. Here is to the beautiful bride and her loving groom! Congratulations!

To the Groom

Every woman dreams of finding the perfect man and many of us find it difficult to find one who is indeed perfect. In you my friend has found the perfect man for her. In you she sees her every happiness and her future. I hope that today and every day forthcoming you will realize how lucky you are to have a woman as beautiful inside and out as she is love you for who you are! Here is to you, for being the perfect man and marrying the most glamorous bride! Congratulations and best wishes!

To the Parents of the Bride and Groom

A wedding day is a day of happiness, togetherness, and hope for most but for a select few it is a bittersweet day where some may not feel as needed as they once did. I think it is important for us all to take note of the people who created our bride and groom, because without them none of us would be here today! To the parents of the bride and groom, remember what they say, you are not losing a child, instead you are gaining one in your child’s spouse!
