Marriage is the formal union that joins two souls together and binds them in the promise of being husband and wife despite all trials and difficulties. Traditionally, the wedding ceremony is followed by a reception, during which speeches are delivered and toasts are made to the bride and groom. Toasts may also be made to the parents of both the bride and the groom. On that note, here is a sample wedding toast to grooms parents.

To begin with, you may deliver something along these lines: “A pleasant evening, ladies and gents! For the benefit of those who do not recognize this old and wrinkled face, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to all of you. I am the proud father of the bride, and I stand here today so I can formally welcome each and every one of in this celebration! Moreover, I would like to thank you all on behalf of my daughter – the bride – and her groom, for being her and for sharing in the magic of the moment. Thank you for your generosity. Thank you for kindly lending us your time and helping us celebrate this wonderful day. You have made this occasion more memorable and more meaningful for our young couple here, and for that we are forever grateful.”
“And now to the bride and the groom, this I say to you – congratulations! I am happy that two people who are perfect for each other found their way to this wonderful moment in time. I am proud of the both of you – proud because you so bravely decided to embark on a brand new journey together and to start married life. My wish for you is that you exhibit responsibility, dedication, and loyalty to each other amidst times of adversity and difficulty.”
“To my dear daughter, let me be honest and say that it pains me a bit to see you all grown up and ready to create a family of your own. But at the end of the day, I know that this day is probably one of the most joyous days for me – seeing you all grown up and mature. I wish you all the best in life.”
“I would like to end my speech by toasting the bride and the groom, but I think that’s overdone. Tonight, I would like to propose a toast to my in-laws, the loving parents of the groom! I thank you, in fact, for the way you raised your son. My daughter is very lucky to have him in her life. To the wonderful parents of the groom, ladies and gentlemen!”
