For example, this is an incredibly inappropriate expression to use in a wedding, because you’re subtextually implying that the person is going to have many more weddings in their life.
This also applies to a funeral, you can’t use “here’s to many more” at one because you’re saying that you want more deaths to happen, plus the expression is inappropriately cheerful for such an event.
You can use “here’s to many more” in plenty of situations in which you’re celebrating something that you wish could happen again and again. It can be something really big in scope, such as finally locking down a great business deal, for you to say “here’s to many more”.
However, it can also be something really small in scope, like if you go out to drink beer with your friends, you can toast to many more beers, and it’d be a meaningful expression.
