When you are planning a memorial service for a loved one, you want to make sure that it is unique and something special. Many traditional ways of managing this event do not provide family members with the satisfaction of having done something special.

This is why you should consider planning a meaningful memorial service. Making it meaningful is a lot about adding personalized touches taking inputs from family members as well as going out of the way to create something that everyone would remember for a long time. Here are some tips that can help you plan a meaningful memorial service:

  • One of the very first things to do is to take into consideration what your loved one preferred and liked when they were alive. For example, if they liked a specific kind of music, play it at the service. Flowers and other decorations can also be selected in the same way.
     
  • You can ask your family members to provide their ideas and reach a consensus about how you would like to plan the entire service.
     
  • Many people are now opting for a celebration of life. You can hire a good celebrant for the event and discuss your requirements while organizing all the aspects of the service. This will lend a very personalized touch to the memorial service and make it more meaningful for you.
     
  • You can place framed photographs and ask other people to add other similar items. It creates a unique ambience at the venue.
     
  • If you feel that planning it in an outdoor location would be a better option, that is something you should consider doing.

The funeral director would be able to provide some good ideas and suggestions on the matter and that can be a great help too. If you want to know more about our funeral services, Nutmeg State Cremation Society, or through our contact us form.
