Some of the best toasts include personal memories, and this 'maid nailed it when she shared the story of the first night she knew Lee was the one for her best friend.

Lauren + Zach | Nashville, Tennessee | War Memorial Auditorium


We officially want to get to know Lauren after hearing her best friend's speech! Guests were treated to stories about the time Lauren spent days helping her pal care for her newborn baby. If that's not the sign of a great friend, we don't know what is.

Rocio + Juan Carlos | San Marcos, California | Green Gables Wedding Estate


One thing we know for sure is that there's no love like sister love, and it really shows in this speech from Rocio's sister. The adorable speech, which included advice like remembering to smile each day, share silly jokes, and make time for movie dates, was so sweet, but it was her emotional delivery that made the toast even better.
