May all your joys be pure joys, 
and all your pain champagne.

Marry a mountain girl
and you marry the whole mountain.
--Irish Proverb

I wish you health, I wish you well, and happiness galore.
I wish you luck for you and friends; what could I wish you more?
May your joys be as deep as the oceans, your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find, sweet peace of mind, where ever you may roam.

Slainte chuig na fir, agus go mairfidh na mna go deo.
"Health to the men and may the women live forever."

Go n-eiri an t-adh leat.
"Good luck."

May your bank account always be bigger than your troubles.

May you look back fifty years from now
and agree that today was the worst
day of your married life.

May you get all your wishes but one
so you always have something to strive for!

Merry met, and merry part,
I drink to thee with all my heart.

Bless you and yours
As well as the cottage you live in.
May the roof overhead be well thatched
And those inside be well matched.

As you ramble through life, whatever be your goal; 
Keep your eye upon the doughnut, and not upon the hole.

Women, Can't live with 'em, 
Pass the beer nuts.
--Norm Peterson, "Cheers"

Here is a toast to lying, cheating, drinking and stealing:
If you lie, lie only to keep a friend.
If you cheat, may you cheat death.
If you steal, steal your lover's heart.
If you drink, drink deeply of the joy of your new life together.

Here's to you both
a beautiful pair,
on the birthday of
your love affair.

Here's to the husband
and here's to the wife.
May they be lovers
the rest of their life.

The test of Gold is Fire
The test of Truth is Time
The test of God's love are the heavens above
and everything sublime
Treasures in life are many,
dreams realized but few
But I know the test of God's goodness
is when he gave me a friend like you.

If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, 
I could walk through my garden forever.

May you live as long as you want to.
And may you want to as long as you live.
Kings and Queens do it and sigh;
Little bees do it and die.

May you taste the sweetest pleasures that fortune ere bestowed,
and may all your friends remember all the favors you are owed.

Here's to the home that (insert bride and groom's names) shall build.
It shall have a kitchen on the first floor,
a bar on the second floor,
a bedroom on the third floor,
and a cathedral on the fourth.

So they can eat when they are hungry,
drink when they are dry,
make love when they are lonely,
and have salvation when they die.

If there such a thing as a good marriage
It is so because of friendship, not love.

The only difference between and Irish wedding
and an Irish wake, is one less drunk.

Here's to me and here's to you,
And here's to love and laughter.
I'll be true as long as you
But not a single second after!

To all the days here and after
May they be filled with fond memories, happiness, and laughter.

Here's to the wine we love to drink, and the food we like to eat.
Here's to our wives and sweethearts, let's pray they never meet.
Here's champagne for our real friends And real pain for our sham friends.
And when this life is over, may all of us find peace.

Happiness being a dessert so sweet
May life give you more than you can ever eat.

May your laugh, your love and your wine be plenty,
thus your happiness will be nothing less.

The recipe for marriage needs but
only one ingredient,
and that is Mutual Respect.
And then, and only then,
a long life of love will follow.

Here's to the maiden of twenty
who knows it's folly to yearn,
And picks a lover of fifty
because he has money to burn.

May your blessings outnumber
the shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
wherever you go.

Here's to the girl I love; and,
Here's to the girl who loves me.
Here's to those who love the girl I love,
And, all those who love the girl I love who love me.

When the roaring flames of your love
have burned down to embers,
may you find that you've married your best friend.

May the best day of your past be the worst day of your future.

May your home always be too small to hold all your friends.

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.

May you...
Work like you don't need the money,
love like you've never been hurt,
dance like no-one is watching,
screw like it's being filmed,
and drink like a true Irishman.

Here's to them that sail to sea
And the ladies that stay on land.
May the former be well rigg-ed
And the latter be well manned

May the winds of fortune sail you,
May you sail a gentle sea.
May it always be the other guy
who says, "this drink's on me."

May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine warm on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

May you both live as long as you want,
And never want as long as you live.

May your glasses be ever full.
May the roof over your heads be always strong.
And may you be in heaven half an hour
before the devil knows you're dead.

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.

As you slide down the banister of life,
May the splinters never point the wrong way.

May the joys of today
Be those of tomorrow.
The goblets of life
Hold no dregs of sorrow.

Health and a long life to you.
Land without rent to you.
A child every year to you.
And if you can't go to heaven,
May you at least die in Ireland.

May you have:
No frost on your spuds,
No worms on your cabbage.
May your goat give plenty of milk.
And if you inherit a donkey,
May she be in foal.

May the luck of the Irish possess you.
May the devil fly off with your worries.
May God bless you forever and ever.

Here's to you and yours
And to mine and ours.
And if mine and ours 
Ever come across to you and yours,
I hope you and yours will do
As much for mine and ours
As mine and ours have done 
For you and yours!

May the most you wish for
Be the least you get.

May the luck of the Irish
Lead to happiest heights
And the highway you travel
Be lined with green lights.

May your troubles be less
And your blessings be more.
And nothing but happiness
Come through your door.

May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
May your hearts be as light as a song.
May each day bring you bright happy hours,
That stay with you all year long.

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way-
Good health, good luck, and happiness
For today and every day.

May your heart be warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day in every way
And forever and ever after.

May the blessings of light be upon you,
Light without and light within.
And in all your comings and goings,
May you ever have a kindly greeting
From them you meet along the road.

May brooks and trees and singing hills
Join in the chorus, too.
And every gentle wind that blows
Send happiness to you.

Like the goodness of the five loaves and two fishes,
Which God divided among the five thousand men,
May the blessing of the King who so divided
Be upon our share of this common meal.

May you have food and raiment,
A soft pillow for your head,
May you be forty years in heaven
Before the devil knows you're dead.

May the strength of three be in your journey.

May your right hand always 
Be stretched out in friendship
And never in want.

May the roof above us never fall in.
And may the friends gathered below it never fall out.

Here's to a sweetheart, a bottle, and a friend.
The first beautiful, the second full, the last ever faithful.

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 I see you gray
And combing your grandchildren's hair.

May your neighbors respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.
May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

May your love for one another come second only to your love for the Lord.

May you see each other through many dark days,
and make all the rest a little brighter.

Here's a health to all those that we love,
Here's a health to all those that love us,
Here's a health to all those that love them 
that love those 
that love them 
that love those 
that love us.

May your neighbors respect you,
trouble neglect you,
angels protect you,
and heaven accept you!

May you be as happy in life as me and eh... what's her name?

Go maire sibh bhur saol nua.
"May you enjoy your new life."

Sliocht sleacht ar shlioch bhur sleachta.
"Blessings on your posterity."

Fad saol agat.
"Long life to you."

Fad saol agat, gob fliuch, agus bas in Eirinn.
"Long life to you, a wet mouth, and death in Ireland."
