Two very different milestones in life: weddings and funerals.

They don't intersect much... and you don't want to confuse one for the other.


u/Abre724 asked:

What's something you can say at a wedding but not at a funeral?

Here were some of those answers.

It Does Happen

Let's do a silly photo this time

Irish funerals. Sombre ceremony, calm for the most part, completely silent except for the responses during mass and some crying. Then off to the pub. Massive piss up, celebration of the persons life. Many silly pictures can and probably will be taken.

Finally! I know this is the happy ending we all wanted.

That's going to be you one day.

I feel like you can absolutely say that someday you will die, at a funeral.

Like when you are single at a wedding and your aunts and uncles say: You're next

At funerals I look at them and say: You're next, with a wink.

An Open Season

"This is the happiest day of my life."

Glittering-Inside

While you may be joking, that is one of the requests I've made too my wife for my funeral. Open bar, open ice cream bar, and as they lower me into the ground I want the sound of you going down the pipes in the original Super Mario bro's.

It Moved On

"I'm proud to say that I'm the one who's responsible for us being here today."

Oops

My mom once said "Congratulations" at a funeral because she didn't fully understand the language yet.

I feel like if someone says something inappropriate but obviously is struggling with the language they should get a pass and a quiet explanation later on.

Over And Over

"Maybe this time it'll work out."

I'm imagining this being said at someone's second funeral. They were supposed to be dead at the first one, but so who came back to life for a while.

I Object

If anyone objects to this union speak now or forever hold your peace.

"I object!"

Over And Over

Till death do us apart was going to be my answer, but i could see a "grieving" widow maniacally mutter that phrases as they realize they have been freed from the iron chains of matrimony.

Mainly I would in that situation. Strip iff my clothes running into the sunset, on a quest to find the moon so I can howl at it.

Just Giving It Back To You Dude

i remember being at my distant cousin's wedding and an old man walked up to me and said "that'll be you one day". a couple months later one of my aunts sadly passed away, and at her funeral i saw that same old man. i walked up to him and said the same thing. apparently that's not a good thing to do?

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

Redditor General-Pea2016 wanted see who would be willing to spill some tea about life, they asked:

"What have you never told anyone?"

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
