Planning a funeral is usually a highly emotional experience, whether you are preparing for your own passing, or if you are making arrangements after a loved one has passed away. In the first instance the stress and emotion can be lessened somewhat because you know you have ample time to make decisions, but it is easy to feel pressured when arranging a funeral after a death.
When you are planning a funeral it can be a great comfort to have helpful people around to support you, such as family members and friends. A funeral director can also provide a real helping hand at these times and take a lot of the pressure off you. They can share their experience, guide you through the various steps and work with you to give your loved one a fitting send off.
One of the very first things to do is to set out your aims for the funeral. You’ll want to ensure your loved one is given a send off that reflects what they meant to you and their personality. There are a number of ways you can do this including the type of coffin, the design of the memorial and its inscription, the flowers, type of hearse and even the readings at the funeral.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive additions to make a funeral special; there are many opportunities to personalise the service, such as getting friends to give a eulogy recalling happy memories, having a reading of the person’s favourite poem, or playing a song that was meaningful for them.
