Irish Wedding Blessings
Irish wedding blessings are similar to Irish readings. Some can be shortened versions of Irish readings. Blessings can be said at any time throughout the traditional Irish wedding day. Sometimes the mother of the bride or groom will say a short blessing before the ceremony in the privacy of family and friends.
A friend or family member may include a blessing in a toast or speech after the wedding. Frequently, the couple chooses an Irish wedding blessing to include on their wedding program or a small card that guests receive upon entering the church.
The blessing could also be printed on small cards and included in each person's place setting.
