History of the Wedding Toast

The wedding toast seems to be a tradition as old as the wedding itself. Wine has long been a part of wedding traditions, dating as far back as weddings mentioned in the Old Testament. Many traditions, wedding toasts included, were based on symbolism, religion, folklore, superstition, and were even thought to ward off evil spirits. Though the actual origin of the wedding toast is difficult to pinpoint, certain parts of the tradition turn up in history and folklore. The actual wedding toast is credited to French tradition, where toasted bread would be placed at the bottom of the drinking glasses of the newlyweds. The newlyweds would then drink as fast as they could to get to the toast. The one who reached the toast first would be the one who ruled the household.
