Today, many people are choosing to veer away from traditional forms of conducting funeral services. The focus is now on celebrating the life of the person that has passed, in a unique and memorable way. If you are looking to personalize a funeral service, here are some of the things you can do;

Decide What Kind Of Theme You Want

Not everyone centers a funeral service on a theme and most people reserve these for celebrations such as anniversaries or birthdays. However, you can choose a theme for a funeral service too and it is a good way of personalizing the event. Keep the decedent’s memory in view while deciding how to plan the event and you can use personalized flower arrangements, decor etc. based on this.

Put The Person's Cherished Possessions On Display At The Funeral

This is an ideal way to lend a personal touch to the service. You can display various items that your loved one liked. You can display cherished possessions, as well as pictures, stamp collections or images of any hobbies that the person had etc. This helps create a more personalized vibe at the funeral service.

Play Their Favorite Music

If your loved one enjoyed a specific kind of music, play that at the funeral service. It's a good way to bring back fond memories, and it allows you to think of the person in a happier light. But when you are choosing music, it is essential to make sure that the song lyrics aren’t inappropriate and that the music isn’t offensive in any way.

As you can see, there are several ways in which you can personalize a funeral service. If you want to know more about our funeral services, feel free to contact us at Wagg Funeral Home today and we’ll be happy to help with all your specific needs.
