Maybe this will save you time if you are asked to give a best man toast in the future. I know I spent a lot of time trying to think of something to say, time that would have been better spent on business, frankly. I gave a best man toast in a wedding this weekend in Cincinnati. I liked the way it turned out, so here it is:
I’ve known Tom now for more than 10 years.
We first met at Miami University. We were both rushing the same fraternity.
At a fraternity party, Tom, being the gentleman that he is, offerered me a drink…I accepted…and we’ve been friends and brothers ever since.
The elements of Tom’s character that make his such a good friend to those of us at this table and in this room
- his loyalty,
- his honesty without exception – he cares enough about you to tell you the truth rather than what you want to here,
- his quick wit, his charm, his fantastic sense of humor, his magnetic and engaging personality
- and the list goes on……and on…
But most importantly…
the list goes on through the eyes of Ashley
who looks at Tom and sees
the man of her dreams…
the man who she wants to spend the rest of her life with.
I wish both of you a life together of health, wealth and bliss
that you both deserve.
