Most of us like to make sure that the things we do are as per our preferences. We want to personalize almost everything ranging from the decor in our house, to how we set the dining table.

Tips to Personalize a Funeral

When we throw a party, we make sure that everything is personalized and that we have the right kind of decorations, flower arrangements, music and more. When we make these efforts for so many things in our life, why should a funeral be different? Here are some ways in which you can personalize a funeral and make it unique.

  • A funeral doesn't always have to be culturally or religiously relevant. Many families are now moving away from these aspects and opting for meaningful funeral services. While organizing a personalized funeral, you can plan everything as per the decedents likes and dislikes, while they were alive.
  • You can choose to arrange a celebration of life where you discuss your feelings about the person and share stories about them.
  • You can also conduct a memorial service in an open location that the person especially liked.
  • The service can be personalized by adding the kind of decorations, flower arrangements, music etc., that your loved one liked.
  • You can also display the person's photographs, and encourage other attendees to add some of their ideas as well.

How you organize a personalized funeral is specific to you and your family's preferences. You can make it as simple or elaborate as you like it to be.
