Irish Wedding Toasts
For A Celtic Wedding
Irish wedding toasts are an important part of a Celtic wedding.
As with any type of wedding speech
the key is to be relaxed, sincere and to the point. Having a drink or two beforehand definitely helps some people as well!
Many Irish toasts are attributed to St. Patrick, the patron saint of
Ireland. He is known for driving all of the snakes from Ireland, and as
a reward he was awarded sainthood and his very own holiday.
Irish toasts tend to be very poetic and picturesque. Here are five of
your favorite toasts for an Irish wedding:
"May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
Slow to make enemies,
And quick to make friends.
But rich or poor, quick or slow,
May you know nothing but happiness from this day forward."
"May the roof above us never fall in,
And may we friends gathered below never fall out."
"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 there be a generation of children
On the children of your children."
"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."
