I'm bad at being insincere. How to toast to the bride and scumbag groom?

I'm looking for suggestions on how to construct a brief, vague, and impersonal maid of honor speech for a wedding I 100% disapprove of.

My best friend is set to marry a lying, cheating, controlling, manipulative, verbally abusive, egotistical man-child with a drinking problem this Saturday. I just plain hate the guy, and about a third of the people who will be in attendance either know that I hate him or know that I should. I've done my best to talk my friend out of settling for this loser, but she's made up her mind to go through with it and now it's my job to keep my opinions to myself and just support her on her wedding day... And give a speech. I can't very well go up there and gush over their beautiful relationship and how inspiring their love is and how happy I know they'll make each other for the rest of their lives when so many people there will know I don't mean a word of it. But I do want to be a good maid of honor for my friend's sake and do what's expected of me by giving a decent speech. What are some generic quotes, advice, or other filler that I could throw in there to wish them well without lying through my teeth?
