`Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you, one and all, very much indeed.' The bride is seldom expected to make a speech but may do so if she wishes to add her thanks to those of her husband, or remain silent and smile her acknowledgments. It is perhaps more gracious if she just says, 'I think you have all been very kind, and I thank you very much'. THE HEALTH OF THE BRIDESMAIDS This toast is proposed by the bridegroom in many cases; but should he not do so, the bridesmaids should be toasted by some prominent gentlemen of the company other than the best man, who has to reply for them. A few brief words in congratulation, such as follows, comprise all that is really necessary. `Ladies and Gentlemen, It is my very pleasant duty to propose the health of the bridesmaids.
I am requested by the bride to express her gratitude to all, especially to the chief bridesmaid, Miss THE BEST MAN REPLIES On behalf of the bridesmaids, I thank you all very much for your kind appreciation, with which I heartily agree. The duties of best man are, I assure you, extremely hardwith all these distracting creatures to keep his eye on as well as the bridegroom.
Ladies and gentlemen thank you very much.
