For some reason, I'm expecting chun in this:

Cuireadh chun Bainise literally "Invitation to a Wedding"

But I could be wrong, Redwolf, it is just an inkling.


Can someone more advanced please tell us which one is (or if both are) correct?

Just to clarify, FGB and focal.ie both have examples with chun and others without. The question is more "is chun specifically required here?"

Cuireadh Bainise versus Cuireadh chun Bainise

(I can also see that both chuig bainis and ar bhainis would work.)

focal.ie gives cuireadh tráthnóna chun bainise for evening invitation (to a wedding)


So I agree with cuireadh chun bainise and cuireadh chuig bainis too.

When do weddings usually take place in Ireland? (and what would you call a wedding breakfast?)

Cuireadh Bainise - sounds ok to me.

I think we may be looking at another case of "wine glass" vs. "a glass of wine" here.
