Manitas is fond of 'If I had a wife, the plague of my life'... I'm just waiting for him to buy me the boat.

It's rather surprising, but I can't think of any well-known Irish songs with a chorus that the general public can join.

Wild rover is too slow and sad, even if it does have a chorus. And it's bad karma for a wedding.

Are your listeners going to be Irish or Polish? Here are a few songs that are apt to be known by both groups.

Oh Susannah
Edelweiss
Happy Wanderer
Loch Lomond

Mairi's Wedding has the right spirit and a good chorus.

The McAlmans recorded another happy little wedding song with a ho-ri-ho-ro chorus:


Spinner's Wedding (Jessie's Gettin' Married)

There is a posting with three links to other threads with wedding song suggestions in them HERE.

If you put "wedding" in the search box for thread titles and set the date back a ways, there are others more specific, i.e. for Irish, etc.

Poland looks like a lot of fun from what we saw on tv, written about in this thread. I reckon if your audience will be Polish, they'd probably not mind a couple of Marty Robbins tunes.

As for speeches, have a look at THIS and, THIS. **BG**

Have fun!

thanks lf and katdo either have a shared melody/one I would recognise? As for wild rover, making a promise to settle down and give up the gargle isnt so bad.Mairis Wedding,why didnt i think of it.Of course theres "maids when your young"
Looks like Im going to be joined by a box player and flute ,the groom himself(bodhran),I imagine the polish will throw in a song or two,so between the jigs and reels it looks like we,re in for a good night.kat, Ive seen those sights,thanks,would anyone have a bodhran player joke?
