THESEUS:  Here come the lovers, full of joy and mirth.
          Joy, gentle friends! Joy and fresh days of love
          accompany your hearts!
 
LYSANDER:                       More than to us
          Wait in your royal walks, your board, your bed!
 
                                                         MND 5.1
 
 
Another comes from a very early work by Shakespeare, in his less Greek phase:
Odysseus to Nausikaa,
 
           And may the gods accomplish your desire:
           a home, a husband, and harmonious
           converse with him--the best thing in the world
           being a strong house held in serenity
           where man and wife agree.  Woe to their enemies,
           joy to their friends!  But all this they know best.
 
                                 trans. Robert Fitzgerald
 
Don't know if either might go on an invitation, but they might work for a
toast.  Mazel tov!

Nikki,
 
I always was taught this: when he goes into the speech, he is questioning
life.
        To be or not to be . . . should I live or should I die?
 
If you go back and reread that particular piece, you'll see what I'm
talking about.
