Dia Dhaoidh,

I will be getting married in a few weeks and I would love to say a few in Irish.

I will doing a speech and would love to welcome and thank everyone for coming as gaeilge. If any one could suggest some welcoming words, i’d be greatly appreciative.

Go raibh maith agat

Baz

Ba mhaith liom (or ‘linn’ if you want to say this comes from you and your spouse) fearadh na failte a chuir romhaibh = I’d like to heartily welcome you all

agus buiochas a thabhairt daoibh as teacht = and thank you for coming


There may be other more standardized or established things to say at the beginning of a wedding, but these are general things one could say to welcome people and are (hopefully) correct wink

Looks good to me, just a couple of spelling correction. It should read “a chur” and the “a” in “failte” and the “i” in “buiochas” have length marks on them (fáilte and buíochas).

Thanks, I wrote that at work where I don’t know how to make the fadas on a PC (on Mac they’re quite easy).  I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that he’d know which words I meant wink
