surprise, it’s your wedding

I’m going to Idaho tomorrow for a good friend’s wedding, but unlike Andy Webster, my friend is well aware of what is going on. Webster showed up in a tux to what he thought was a cruise in honor of his fiance’s aunt. As he approached the boat he saw that his fiance was wearing a wedding dress. “Everyone on the ship had bells in their hands and yelled as Webster began to realize what was really going on. He had been fooled into attending his own wedding.”

Today I was informed that I am responsible for giving the wedding toast. I’d like it to be memorable, meaningful and inspiring, but it’s hard to do. I had no problem finding sites with toasts on them and I kind of like the Apache Wedding Prayer but I’m still not sure what to say.

I will most likely not have internet access until I return on Saturday so the blog will remain silent in my absence. After reading so many toasts, I might as well put some of them to good use.

May thy life be long and happy,
The cares and sorrows few;
And the many friends around thee,
Prove faithful, fond and true.

  2. Tammie, they had been engaged for 3 years and had planned a number of wedding dates but for some reason the dates always fell through. Andy had said that whenever she wanted to get married to just let him know, so the surprise was that he had didn’t know about it, not that they were getting married.

    I can see your point though. If I had an over-anxious girlfriend who threw a surprise wedding, my response would be a swan dive into the water and a refreshing swim to shore. ;)
