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.

No One Mourns The Wicked

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

Doesn't she look lovely in that dress?

Wink

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.

alk_adio_ost

"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?

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
