    We are having a close friend read an Irish Blessing during the wedding. Anyone have any that they want to share? Below is one that I've found and like.

    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 the fields.

    May the light of friendship guide your paths together.
    May the laughter of children grace the halls
    of your home.
    May the joy of living for one another trip a smile
    from your lips,
    A twinkle from your eye.

    And when eternity beckons,
    at the end of a life heaped high with love,
    May the good Lord embrace you
    with the arms that have nurtured you
    the whole length of your joy-filled days.
    May the gracious God hold you both
    in the palm of His hands.

    And, today, may the Spirit of Love
    find a dwelling place in your hearts.

    Amen.

      I am having Mike's sister read the Irish Wedding Song. One of my friends always sings it at our friends weddings, but unfortunately she's not coming to our wedding, so I hope it sounds as nice being read. (Sorry it's in all caps, I copied it from a site):

      THERE THEY STAND HAND IN HAND, AND EXCHANGE WEDDING BANDS.
      TODAY IS THE DAY OF ALL THEIR DREAMS AND PLANS.
      AND ALL OF THERE LOVED ONES ARE HERE TO SAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

      IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH
      MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH
      HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THEIR WAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

      MAY THEY FIND PEACE OF MIND, COMES TO ALL WHO ARE KIND
      MAY THE ROUGH TIMES AHEAD, BECOME TRIUMPHS IN TIME
      MAY THEIR CHILDREN BE HAPPY EACH DAY
      GOD BLESS THIS FAMILY WHO STARTED TODAY

      IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH
      MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH
      HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THERE WAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

      AS THEY GO, MAY THEY KNOW EVERY LOVE THAT WILL SHOW
      AND AS LIFE GETS SHORTER, MAY THEIR FEELINGS GROW
      WHEREVER THEY TRAVEL, WHEREVER THEY STAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY
      IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD TIMES, IN SICKNESS AND HEALTH
      MAY THEY KNOW THAT RICHES ARE NOT NEEDED FOR WEALTH
      HAVE THEM FACE PROBLEMS THEY'LL MEET ON THEIR WAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY
      GOD BLESS THIS COUPLE WHO MARRY TODAY

          This is the one that we will be using:

          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 if 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 harm
          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.

            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.

            May the road rise to meet you
            May the wind be always at your back
            May the sun shine warm upon your face
            and the rain fall soft upon your fields
            And until we meet again my friend
            May God hold you in the hollow (palm) of his hand

            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

            But rich or poor, quick or slow,
            May you know nothing but happiness
            From this day forward.
            May the joys of today
            Be those of tomorrow.

            ---

            May your mornings bring joy and your evenings bring peace.
            May your troubles grow few as your blessings increase.
            May the saddest day of your future
            Be no worse than the happiest day of your past.
            May your hands be forever clasped in friendship
            And your hearts joined forever in love.
            Your lives are very special,
            God has touched you in many ways.
            May his blessings rest upon you
            And fill all your coming days.
