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.

Doesn't she look lovely in that dress?

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?

When scholars look back on our current time of excitement, upheaval, and chaos, I wonder how they will define the era that preceded theirs.

Some people are just rotten to the core. We can't explain it and we can't fix it.

What's most disturbing is when we learn this truth about someone we've known for quite some time.

But more often than not, people will show their true dark colors from the jump.

What's that old saying? "Make sure you're always wearing clean underwear in case you're in an accident. What would the medics think."

I'm paraphrasing, but you get it.

That saying can be applied to many aspects of life.

What "surprising" items are hidden in your drawers? Or under you bed?

Or dear Lord... what is on your phone?

We all have ownership over a belonging or six that could cause quite a stir.

Especially if we aren't there to explain it's existence.

I'll be honest, for most of my life I have had exactly zero daily routine.

The chaos was something of a calling card—but not one that was necessarily good for me.

Spoiler alert, I had a raging case of undiagnosed neuroodivergent shenanigans—and in recent years I've been able to get a better handle on being me.

As a result, a daily routine has sort of developed.
