The speeches are the best part of a wedding. Sometimes they are tedious but most often they are funny and touching. I never tire of hearing the best man say, “I love you, man” to his lifelong friend. I always choke up when the Dad pauses to get through his thoughtfully worded speech to his daughter. The best part is often the toasts to the bride and groom, made by special people in the couple’s lives. Here are the ten best movie quotes for spicing up the message to newlywed friends.
