When we were 16, we were dreaming of what we would do when we grew up, when and who we would marry. Today is the day. You two are meant to be. I couldn't be happier to share in your joy. I'm so proud of you, bestie.

[Bride's name] and [Groom's name], I can’t wait to watch you turn into the cutest old married couple. Here’s to love and marriage getting better with every year – and that we all end up in the same nursing home!

Over the years, we've been here for each other through countless sleepless nights, sharing all joys and sorrows. We've played together, celebrated birthdays, proms, first kisses, nights out, and travels. We've dismissed sad things and annoying people and things, from studying to working. I'm so happy we've been here for each other. Today is your big day. I hope all the joy in the world awaits you in your later life (if not, most of it). And don't forget, I'm still here. Give me a call if anything.

Hey, [Bride's name], I still remember the day we sang together on my childhood bedroom floor. Time flies, and today it's time to walk down the aisle. I'll cherish those days we spent together forever. Of course, hope you two can create more happy memories together.

[Bride's name] and [Groom's name], as I look out at your beaming faces surrounded by the loved ones who have witnessed your beautiful romance blossom and evolve, I can't help but dream about the lifetime of memories you have yet to make together. May your days be filled with more joy, intimacy, and laughter than you can imagine. And may your nights never lose that signature spark of flirtatious fun you've always embodied as a couple (just don't have too much celebratory fun tonight - there are families with children present!). You two are the real deal when it comes to soulmates. I can't wait to watch you grow more obsessively in love with each passing year until you're that inseparable, undeniably cute old married couple we all aspire to be.
