Families that choose cremation often struggle to come up with a good memorial service idea in order to provide all guests the comfort and closer they need. At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we believe that meaningful and elegant memorial services are easy to plan and execute. Here are some ideas that can help you create the best memorial service for your loved ones:

1. Choose a Personal Theme

A personal theme can make the memorial service stand out and make it intimate. It’s a great way to remember a loved one and ensure everyone finds comfort in the service. For example, if the deceased was a great lover of Star Wars, you can do a Star Wars themed memorial service.

2. Slideshow or Video Montages

These are easy to piece together and can add a personal touch to the memorial service. You can go through old photographs and videos of your decedent and choose the ones that showcase important milestones like graduation, wedding, parenthood, anniversaries, etc. This is a great way to showcase the story of the deceased person and establish a connection with the guests.

3. Music

A good funeral music playlist can add the right amount of nostalgia and evoke an emotional response in the attendees. It’s important to choose the right combination of music because a poor selection might seem insensitive and negative impact the grieving people. A good combination of the decedent’s favorite songs, classical music, and soothing songs can help create the right environment.

4. Memories on an Open Mic

Sharing memories can help people recover from grief and offer them closure. An open mic during the memorial service can be a great way for everyone who has a meaningful interaction with the decedent to share their experience.

At Nutmeg State Cremation Society, we provide comprehensive cremation services and can help you with all aspects of the process so if you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
