Polish wedding traditions/ toast ideas

Dzien dobry,

My son is getting married in two weeks. I've been asked to give a short toast. Are there any special Polish toasts, blessings, etc?

Both of my parents were Polish....and both died suddenly before my son's engagement. I had always hoped to rely on them for Polish traditions with respect to weddings....but it wasn't meant to be. I have no other Polish relatives living / nearby. But, I would like to incorporate some tradition if possible.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I love Polish weddings! Ive been to 4 or so in Chicago already. They really know who to party!!
I was invited to a wedding this forthcoming August, but it doesn't look like Im going to make this one......too bad.

I went to one once in Greenpoint in the early 2OOO's. Neither of either parents spoke English and so my buddy Antek, the groom and Polish-American on both sides, asked me if I'd translate some before the ceremony. All I remember is the amount of food brought out for the buffét, every conceivable Polish specialty imaginable!

Forget Warka Strong. Sobieski is much better. Miss K. nobody needs any special toast ideas. Za parę młodą, za Genia, za Lyżko, za piękne kobiety, za tamto gdzie nas jeszcze nie było... are some examples for a toast.😇
