Funeral services are a great way to reminisce your loved one with all the close family and friends. It is an event to celebrate the life of the person while grieving their loss. We, at Wagg Funeral Home, understand how important it is to have a successful funeral service. Here are some ideas on planning it creatively:

Customize It

Try to make the funeral service as personal as possible. This can be done by incorporating elements that remind people of the person. You can also have coffins that best suit their choice or personality. Moreover, you can also arrange for a tombstone with few words in remembrance.

Display Art

Dedicating artwork dead is a great way of paying your respects and expressing your feelings for them. You can encourage people close to the person to play a song or read a poem. Display any of the deceased’s artwork for everyone to admire. 

Decorate

A great way to create a peaceful atmosphere during the funeral is through decorations. You can choose a location with a lot of trees and also arrange flowers and bouquets around the coffin. Include the person’s favorite flowers for decorating the coffin to make it more heartfelt.

Display a Memory Wall

You can collaboratively remember the deceased and share your emotions through a memory wall. This can be a place where people pen down their thoughts about the person. You also add their photographs to it.

We at Wagg Funeral Home, offer all the services required for a funeral ceremony. We hope these tips would help you plan a creative funeral ceremony for your loved one. For more information about funerals and other related topics, you can feel free to contact us and discuss your ideas with our funeral director who will also give their inputs.
