We have been honored at My Big Day to plan celebrations of life for a number of our clients. Planning an end-of-life event for a loved one is never easy, but we hope to inspire you with these 35 celebration of life toast ideas in their memory.
A celebration of life is a ceremony celebrating a one-of-a-kind individual, your loved one. It is typically a casual, joyful, and touching event where friends and family gather to reminisce and share favorite memories of the deceased and celebrate a life well lived.
A celebration of life usually follows a burial or cremation and may or may not be preceded by a formal funeral.
Every time we are asked to plan a celebration of life, we treat the process and our clients with compassion, respect, and the utmost attention to detail.
35 Celebration of Life Toast Ideas
Short, Simple Celebration of Life Toast
Oh, here's to other meetings,
And merry greetings then;
And here's to those we've drunk with,
But never can again.
Celebration of Life Toast for a Fisherman
There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.

Nature-Inspired Celebration of Life Quotes

Funny Celebration of Life Toast Ideas
Dying is a very dull, dreary affair. And my advice to you is to have nothing whatever to do with it.
