Dios te bendiga? Spanish ending to a wedding toast?

votes

I am giving a speech at a wedding. Some of the bride's family are coming from Mexico and know little or no English. I want to end the speech with a brief Spanish phrase meaning "God bless you. Cheers" or something along those lines in honor of those of her family who speak only Spanish.

NOTE: I know almost NO Spanish so I would need help with pronunciation also.

Would "Dios te bendiga. Salud!" be appropriate? Or is there some other "common" Spanish toast I could use? Please keep in mind that I am not fluent so I need to keep it rather simple, but would really like to include her Spanish speaking relatives. Your help would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!

I would say Que Dios los bendiga. ¡Salud!

But, I'm no native...

The only thing that I would change: Dios los bendiga. Salud! "te" is singular; "los" is plural; If you are refering to the bride and groom.
