With the Spring and Summer wedding seasons not so far off, it won’t be too long until we hear the forks and knives ringing out against wine and water glasses alike. Celebrations call for toasts, and you might just be called upon to make one yourself--for a son, a daughter, or even an associate who is up for retirement.

Here are a few classic wedding toasts, sampled from around the web:

“May you both live as long as you want, and never want as long as you live.”

“May you live each day like your last, and live each night like your first.”

“Here’s to the two secrets to a long-lasting and happy marriage: A good sense of humor and a short memory!”

While the etiquette of toasting varies across cultures and situations, there are a number of interesting “rules” that are commonly followed. For instance:

A toast is generally offered standing, unless the group is very small or informal.

When gathered to honor a person, it is the host of the event who has the honor of delivering the first toast.

The person honored in a toast usually does not stand or drink (but rises after to thank the person offering the toast).

Putting a glass down before the completion of a toast or holding without drinking is thought of as impolite, as it suggests one does not share the spirit of the toast.

Toasts accompany some of life’s greatest changes, and so do real estate decisions. If your nest is about to be emptier or more crowded, now could be a good time to find that dream home for the next step in your life.
