wedding wish

So, I spent the good portion of this evening browsing ceremony prayers. Many made me teary eyed. OK, all of them. I am extra lovey-dovey these days. Perhaps is because I'm a zillion miles away from My Guy this month. Add that to the romantic weather of the northwest (chilly nights, rain clouds, and blooming flowers). These prayers also made me think about my parents, how much they love each other, and how much I adore them. I hope they live forever.

Irish Marriage Blessing

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 you know nothing but happiness" is such a nice wedding wish...isn't it? Oh oh, and the "May you see your children's children." Aww. Found here. Where are you finding ceremony inspiration? Please share!


  1. We are having Khali Gibran "On Marriage" at our wedding. Its so beautiful, its too long to post here, but you can find it :) love your blog!

  2. Irish blessings are so simple and so sweet. Back when I used to go to church, the nice priest always said the same Irish blessing at the end, can't remember it now though.
