Irish Blessings & Wedding Toasts

As you slide down the bannister of life, may the splinters never point in the wrong direction - Irish Blessing

Irish wedding toasts are a great way to honor the bride and groom at the reception. Create a warm and loving atmosphere at the reception by quoting an Irish toast to the happy couple.

An Irish Prayer

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 Wedding Toast

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck and happiness
For today and every day

May you have love that never ends,
lots of money, and lots of friends.
Health be yours, whatever you do,
and may God send many blessings to you!!

May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings
Slow to make enemies,
Quick to make friends,
But rich or poor, quick or slow,
May you know nothing but
happiness from this day forward.

and here is a traditional Irish blessing:-

May the Road Rise to Meet You

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.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you;
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

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.

Celtic Blessing

May you both be blessed
with the strength of heaven,
The light of the sun and the
radiance of the moon
The splendour of fire,
The speed of lightning,
The swiftness of the wind,
The depth of the sea,
The stability of the earth,
and the firmness of rock.

Irish Blessing and Wedding Toast

May the blessings of each day be the blessings you need most,
May the most you wish for be the last you get,
May the Lord keep you in His hand and never close His fist too tight.

Irish Blessings

Always remember to forget
The things that made you sad,
But never forget to remember
The things that made you glad.

Always remember to forget
The friends that proved untrue,
But never forget to remember
Those that have stuck by you.

Always remember to forget
The troubles that passed away,
But never forget to remember
The blessings that come each day

May you always find
blue skies above your head,
shamrocks beneath your feet,
laughter and joy aplenty,
kindness from all you meet,
good friends and kin to miss you
if ever you choose to roam,
and a path that's been cleared
by angels themselves
to carry you safely home.

May you have warm words on a cold evening,
a full moon on a dark night,
and the road downhill all the way to your door.

May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door

An Irish Blessing

Irish Wedding Toast

May you always be blessed
with walls for the wind,
a roof for the rain,
a warm cup of tea by the fire,
laughter to cheer you,
those who love near you,
and all that your heart might desire.

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers,
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours,
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

Irish Blessing and Toast

May there always be work for your hands to do ...
May your purse always hold a coin or two ...
May the sun always shine on your windowpane ...
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain ...
May the hand of a friend always be near you ...
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you ...
And until we meet again ...
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Irish Wedding Blessing

Friends and relatives, so fond and dear, 'tis our greatest pleasure to have you here. When many years this day has passed, fondest memories will always last. So we drink a cup of irish mead and ask God's blessing in your hour of need.

The guests respond: On this special day, our wish to you, the goodness of the old, the best of the new. God bless you both who drink this mead, may it always fill your every need.

An Olde Irish Wish

May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow
May the soft winds freshen your spirit
May the sunshine brighten your heart
May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you
And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.

Old Irish Blessing

May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life's passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

May flowers always line your path
and sunshine light your day.

May songbirds serenade you
every step along the way.

May a rainbow run beside you
in a sky that's always blue.

And may happiness fill your heart
each day your whole life through.
