Making a Christening toast at the end of a Christening speech is a skill. Making them meaningful and witty is nigh impossible. Here are a few that I have heard or used in the past:
“Ladies and gentlemen, please raise your glasses and drink a toast to young Billie – wealth, health & happiness.”
“Be loving with your family, selfless with your friends and generous to everyman.”
“We wish young Billie good fortune, health and peace on his journey through life. May he find love and comfort when he is troubled, may he find true friendship as he grows and may he learn to be kind and considerate to everyone he meets over what we hope will be a long and happy life.”
“For a head that will always be bright, a stomach that will always be full and a heart that will always be happy…”
If you have any additional Christening toasts or any other Christening speech ideas, please add them to the comments below. You never know when you might need them.
