41 Irish Wedding Toasts


You may be wondering how an Irish toast differs from normal toasts given at a non-Irish wedding.  Well there aren’t many differences unless you are of Irish decent, then in that case you would know the Irish tongue and not have any problems with the pronunciations of some of the blessings.

But if you are making a toast for someone who is of Irish decent and had an Irish wedding you will probably want to add in a little Irish tradition to your toast.  You will want to start the toast like any other toast, announcing yourself and how you know the newlyweds.  But something different than most toasts you will want to add in is a Irish blessing.  There are many of these around if you want to just use one of the follow, but they basically are what you wish for them I their married lives together.  For instance, take this blessing:

Irish Marriage Blessing
May God be with you and bless you.
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortunes
and rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
from this day forward.
For more Irish Blessings

If you feel up to it, you could try writing your own.  You are basically just telling them what your wishes are for them put together like a poem.  Make a list then of what you hope their marriage will entail, all good things of course then put each on at the end of, “May you …

  1. …have a marriage of endless love

  2. …always remember this day

  26. The real act of Marriage takes place in the heart,

    And that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
    Barbara De Angelis
    Marriage Quote

    They will hold you tight as you struggle through difficult times - comfort you when you are sick, console you when you are grieving.
    These are the hands that will give you support as you encourage each other to chase down your dreams.
    Together, everything you wish for can be realized.
    May you see these hands as healer, protector, shelter, and guide.
