    Wedding Toast

    I have the honor of giving a toast at a wedding on Sunday (I just now found out). The bride is Russia and the groom is Spainish. According to my girlfriend the speech should be 2 or 3 mins! I do not really know either of them, so the normal stories don't apply.
    Please offer me some help by giving me some good quotes in Russian. Or a basic layout in which you may have used.
    If anyone has done this in Russian or Spainish please help (it must be in both languages and I don't really know either)!
    Thanks,
    Jamie

    I've heard that the #1 fear among people is public speaking. I think public speaking at a stranger's wedding in a foriegn language tops that by quite a bit! How did you get into such a thing? (sorry I can't offer any useful help)

    Why don't you think up in English a few things to say at this wedding and have the Russians at MR translate for you?

    Doveryai, no proveryai!

    That's what Reagen said. Trust, but verify.

    Maybe that can be useful in some humoristic way!

    No! Bad advice! Калинка, ты меня пугаешь и настораживаешь.
    Just trust!

    I was always awfully afraid of speaking toasts, on weddings espesially. Poor Jamie... I can understand you.
    Please, correct my mistakes, except for the cases I misspell something on purpose!

    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.
