So my best friend from college is getting “married” (they’re already married with an adorable kid, three years now). This ceremony is for the family and friends.
I’m best man, returning the favor from my wedding seven years ago. I live in Boston; they’re in LA. We don’t see each other often but whenever I visit I hang out with them. His wife is French Canadian and tres cool… even nursed me to health when I visited and got food poisoning!
We’re a small grooms party - one is his cousin, one is another good buddy of ours from college. As it’s not going to be a super-formal deal, we thought of doing a toast together. Cousin could talk about Bill as a kid, I could talk about Bill in college, and our buddy could talk about Bill as a husband and dad (as he lives in LA as well).
What are your Dope suggestions about delivering a toast that is memorable, brief, and fun? (I’ve already decided to drop all of the sophomoric “hey, when we were in college we did X” stuff.) I’m also stretching to include his wife in the toast. Please help!
