Just before your Best Man stands up and mocks you incessantly for fifteen minutes, it's essential that the Bride Groom's wedding speech is concluded with a suitable Groom toast.


The Groom toast can be a simple thing that lasts only a moment or two, but it is still important that you get the words just right.


This article takes a closer look at the Groom toast, and suggests some appropriate words for you to use on the day.



What is a Groom Toast?


A toast is essentially a few words of congratulation, good luck or appreciation that's immeditately followed by a drink to the relevant person or people. In the case of the Groom toast, the words are appreciative ones, and are directed towards the Maid of Honour and the Bridesmaids.





The sentiments that Groom toast makes will be echoed in a later toast given by the Best Man - with this in mind it's always worth quickly checking with your mate that you aren't both using exactly the same lines!



Suggested Words for the Groom Toast


There are no specific words or phrases that you need to cram into a Groom toast, just the conveyance of gratitude and appreciation, so you are free to say whatever feels right. Avoid uneccessary waffle during the toast, and minimise praise of the ladies appearance (your missus will be listening intently remember!). Try to keep the whole thing brief and if you aim for between one and three sentences worth of sentiment, and you can't go far wrong.


The following are examples of typical Groom toast words you may wish to use:




"May I take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the Bridesmaids here today. You've been a great help to my new wife and I and we are both very appreciative.


So if everyone could please join with me and lift up their glasses as we raise a toast - to our bridesmaids."




Before I take a seat I have one last task to perform, and it's thank each and every one of our bridesmaids here today for their kind help and assistance. And whilst I was unsure before hand, my wife was actually right, you actually do scrub up OK! So Ladies and Gentlemen, please raise your glasses and join with me in in raising a toast to our beautiful, kind and wonderfully helpful bridesmaids."




"I'd like to take this moment to give a special mention to our bridesmaids and in particular our Maid of Honour. My wife has some wonderful friends and never has this has been more obvious than today. So without further ado, please could everyone be upstanding and join me in a toast to the bridesmaids."
