Irish Blessings


It is a great thing when you get to give an toast, especially when it is a Irish wedding!  When preparing your toasts, remember that prayers, blessings, quotes, poems and proverbs can all be included in your toast to the newly married couple.  Feel free to use some of the ones we have complied in your toast.



May God give you...

For every storm, a rainbow,

For every tear, a smile,

For every care, a promise,

And a blessing in each trial.

For every problem life sends,

A faithful friend to share,

For every sigh, a sweet song,

And an answer for each prayer.

Irish Prayer


May the blessing of light be on you—

light without and light within.

May the blessed sunlight shine on you

and warm your heart

till it glows like a great peat fire.

Old Celtic 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.

Be no worse than the happiest day of your past.

And your hearts joined forever in love.

Wedding Blessing


May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Irish Prayer
