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.
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
…have a marriage of endless love
…always remember this day
…always live happily hand in hand together
…be blessed with many children and grandchildren
…always have a loving home
…be poor in misfortunes
…be wealthy in luck
…always remember to never go to bed angry
…love without uncertainty
…forgive and forget
…have lots of patience for one another
…never forget the events of today
…never forget the love you feel for each other today
As you can see there are many options for making your own Irish blessing
