Funny Wedding Toasts to Two Brides

Here are some funny toasts for a wedding between two women:

  1. “To my best friend and her beautiful bride. You know, I always thought you’d end up with a man who could handle your awesomeness, but I guess even the strongest men couldn’t keep up with you. I’m so happy you found someone who can.”
  2. “As we raise our glasses to toast these two beautiful brides, I have to say, they are a match made in heaven. One of them likes to cook, the other likes to eat. One likes to be organized, the other likes to procrastinate. But somehow, they manage to balance each other out and create the perfect recipe for a happy marriage.”
  3. “I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical when my friend told me she was marrying another woman. But after meeting her now-wife, I have to say, she’s a catch! She’s beautiful, funny, and has a great sense of style. And to my friend, I have to say, you’ve finally found someone who can appreciate your shoe collection.”
  4. “I’ve known one of these brides since we were kids, and let me tell you, she always had a flair for the dramatic. So when she announced she was getting married, I knew it would be nothing short of a spectacle. And boy, did she deliver! From the stunning venue to the custom wedding cake, this has been a wedding to remember. Here’s to the happy couple, may your marriage be as grand as your wedding!”
  5. “I’ve been friends with both of these brides for years, and I have to say, they make the perfect team. One of them is the yin to the other’s yang. One likes to party, the other likes to Netflix and chill. But together, they make every moment count. And let’s be real, they’re both a little bit crazy, but that’s why we love them!”
  6. “To the happy couple, may your love be like a good wine, only getting better with age. And like a good wine, you can’t rush the process. You have to take your time, savor every moment, and enjoy the journey. And if you get a little tipsy along the way, well, that’s just part of the fun!”
  7. “I’ve known [bride’s name] for years, and I can honestly say that I’ve never seen her as happy as she is with [bride’s name]. And trust me, I’ve seen her eat a whole pizza by herself.”
  8. “When [bride’s name] told me she was getting married, I was so excited to hear about the lucky guy who won her heart. Then she introduced me to [bride’s name], and I realized that he was never in the running.”
  9. “I’ve always been the third wheel in [bride’s name]’s relationships, so I’m thrilled that she finally found someone who doesn’t mind me crashing date nights. Congrats, you two!”
  10. “As [bride’s name]’s best friend, I can tell you that she’s always been drawn to strong, independent women. And now she’s found one that she can spend the rest of her life with. Congrats to my favorite power couple!”

Funny Wedding Toasts to Two Grooms

  1. “I can’t believe I’m here to witness this. Two grooms getting married! I mean, who’s going to carry the other one over the threshold now? But in all seriousness, seeing you two together has made me believe in true love again. Congratulations on your big day!”
  2. “To the newlyweds, who will no longer have to worry about who’s going to be the big spoon or the little spoon! You guys truly are a match made in heaven. Congratulations!”
  3. “I remember when you guys first told me you were getting married. My first thought was ‘finally, someone to take on those crazy dance moves at the reception!’ But in all honesty, seeing you two together has been a true inspiration. Here’s to a lifetime of love, laughter, and killer dance moves!”
  4. “I’m honored to stand here today as a witness to the love between two amazing grooms. You guys have been through thick and thin, and you’ve always been there for each other. And now, you get to continue your journey together as husbands. Congratulations!”
  5. “To the grooms, who have proven that love knows no gender, no boundaries, and no limits. You guys have faced challenges and obstacles, but you’ve always faced them together. You’ve shown us all what true love looks like, and we couldn’t be happier for you. Congratulations!”

Funny Dinner Blessings for the Wedding Reception

Examples of Funny Dinner Blessings

“Let us give thanks for this delicious feast before us. And let us also give thanks to the bride and groom for not choosing the chicken option. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness and delicious meals together. Cheers!”

A funny wedding toast or dinner blessing can be a great way to break the ice and set the tone for a fun and memorable reception. Just remember to keep it clean and appropriate for all ages. With a little bit of humor and a lot of heart, you can create a speech that the couple and their guests will remember for years to come.

Funny Wedding Toasts and Dinner Blessings to Keep the Guests Laughing

Here are some funny wedding toasts and dinner blessings to inspire you to add some laughter to the celebration, add some levity to the proceedings, and help break the ice among guests.

“The Stand-Up Routine” Wedding Toast

For the confident and quick-witted, channel your inner stand-up comedian and deliver a funny wedding toast that will have the guests in stitches. Incorporate jokes about the couple’s quirks, their dating history and engagement, and your own experiences with them. Just remember to keep it clean and avoid anything too risqué!


“Good evening, everyone! I’m honored to be standing here as [bride’s name]’s best friend and maid of honor. When [bride’s name] first told me about [groom’s name], I have to admit I was a little skeptical. I mean, the guy she described was into all sorts of weird things like collecting Star Wars memorabilia and spending hours playing video games. But then I met him and saw how happy he made her, and I knew he was the one. [Groom’s name], I have to give you credit – you managed to steal the heart of one of the most stubborn and independent women I know.

And [bride’s name], I have to give you credit too – you managed to convince [groom’s name] to wear a tuxedo and actually shave for the occasion. But in all seriousness, I’m so happy for you both. I’ve seen firsthand how you balance each other out – [bride’s name] with her love of hiking and healthy eating, and [groom’s name] with his love of ordering takeout and binge-watching Netflix. You truly complement each other in the best way possible.

I have no doubt that you’ll have a long and happy life together, filled with love, laughter, and maybe even a few rounds of Mario Kart. So let’s raise a glass to the happy couple – congratulations on your wedding day!”

“The Sibling Rivalry” Wedding Toast

If you’re the bride or groom’s sibling, a toast is the perfect opportunity to roast them (in a loving way, of course). Share some embarrassing stories from their childhood, poke fun at their insecurities, and make some good-natured jabs about their relationship. Just make sure you end on a positive note and express your love and support for the newlyweds.


“As the proud sibling of the groom, it’s my duty to share a few stories that might just embarrass my brother a little bit. You see, growing up, my brother always had a bit of an insecurity about his hair. I mean, who can blame him? But he took it to the extreme, spending more time in the bathroom than any girl I knew at the time. But it all paid off, didn’t it? Look at him now, with his perfect hair and his perfect bride.

And speaking of the bride, let me just say that I’m so happy my brother finally found someone who can keep up with him. He’s always been a bit of a handful, but she takes it all in stride. I remember when they first started dating and my brother was so nervous about everything. He kept asking me for advice, but I don’t think I was very helpful. I mean, I’m not exactly a relationship expert. But somehow, they figured it out and here we are today, celebrating their love.

In all seriousness, though, I couldn’t be happier for my brother and his new wife. They bring out the best in each other and I know they’re going to have an incredible life together. So, here’s to the happy couple. May your marriage be filled with love, laughter, and lots of bad hair days. Cheers!”

Other Funny Wedding Toast Ideas

The Sports Analogy: Sports fans will appreciate a wedding toast that uses sports analogies to describe the couple’s relationship. Talk about the ups and downs of their journey together, the teamwork required to make a successful marriage, and how they’ve hit a home run with each other. You can even use props like a basketball or football to drive your points home.

The Newlywed Game: This one requires some forethought and planning. Inspired by the classic game show, put together a list of questions about the couple and have guests guess the answers. You can include silly questions like “who hogs the blankets?” and more serious ones like “what’s the secret to a happy marriage?” This is a great way to involve the guests and get everyone laughing.

The Love Story Spoof: Put your creative writing skills to the test by creating a funny spoof of the couple’s love story. Write a short skit or parody song that tells their story with a comedic twist. This is a unique and memorable way to give a funny wedding toast that will have everyone talking about it for years to come.

Adding some humor to wedding toasts and dinner blessings can make the celebration more memorable and enjoyable for everyone. Whether you opt for a typical toast or something more creative, make sure to keep it lighthearted and fun.

Cheers to a happy and laughter-filled wedding day!
