51 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.

  42. The real act of Marriage takes place in the heart,
    Not in the ballroom or Church or Synagogue.

    But over and over again,
    And that choice is reflected in the way you treat your husband or wife.
