Four Tips For Creating A Celebration Of Life Service

Tanya Carter

Planning a funeral can be extremely stressful and tough to do, but if you keep in mind that this time should be marked as a celebration of life rather than a sad funeral, it can be a bit easier. This is because most of your time planning is going to be spent remembering all of the good times. Here are four tips to help you accomplish this:

  1. Be Mindful of Who to Invite: When it comes to deciding who to invite the funeral, it's really up to you. You just have to remember who your loved one would have wanted there. This way, you can be sure that the guests attending are really there to celebrate their life. This means it could either be a really intimate affair with just the closest friends and family, or it can be a large service or even open invitation to anyone who wants to be there. It's really up to you and what you feel your loved one would have wanted. 
  2. Be Mindful of Location: When choosing a funeral home, there are a wide range of options. You may want to choose one, for example, that will have a large outdoor space for the service if this is what is going to work best. It doesn't have to be a traditional indoor funeral. If your loved one would have preferred the outdoors or you are going to have an open invitation, then this is probably the best option. 
  3. Be Mindful of the Service Plan: A celebration of life should include details in the service that truly celebrate life. This can include having a friend or family member speak about all the good times they have shared with their loved one. You can also choose to have just an officiant speak about the deceased's life if you feel no one is able to do so because of high emotions. 
  4. ​Be Mindful of Details: For the service and the small gathering after the service, you want to be mindful of all the details. If your loved one had a particular favorite flower, you want to use these. You should also put together scrapbooks and possibly even a video that commemorates their life. You should even carefully choose music they would have loved that those attending can also enjoy and use to remember your loved one. 

When you consider these four tips, you can really put together a service that commemorates their life to keep spirits high during this time. Contact a funeral home like the Danks-Hinski Funeral Home for additional ideas.

About Me
Finding The Best Urn And Casket Options

Hi everyone, my name is Peter Holly. I am interested in teach others about the various urn and casket options on the market today. I would also like to explore the history of the creation and display of urns and caskets. When my father died, I took a long time to select the best urn for display on my mantle. I wanted to hold the ashes in a creation that encapsulated the personality of my father. I eventually selected a small wooden box with a cherry finish and bronze accents. If my father had wanted a burial instead, it probably would have taken even longer to select the best casket. There are just so many interior finishes available in addition to all of the exterior designs. Please come by often for assistance in finding your best urn or casket options.
