Our Favorite Ideas for Creating a Unique Service
More often than not, funeral services are very deeply rooted in tradition - religious or cultural. Paying your respects to the dearly departed can be beautiful as well as meaningful. However, it is possible to get a little creative when it comes to arranging a funeral service. After all, your loved one that has passed away must have had some quirks, stories, and different interests etc. all of which are unique and should be celebrated and remebered.
How To Get Creative
It is possible to incorporate all of these into the service in order to make it unique as well. These are some of the best ways to do justice to the post and individuality. Here are some interesting ideas for creating a unique service:
- Display Photographs - If you have easy access to the photos of the individual that has passed, you can display them in a very interesting manner, like a collage or a photo board. You can also create a slideshow to be played during the service.
- The Right Type Of Foods - It’s also a good idea to try to incorporate food preferences of the decedent into the funeral service. For instance, if your loved one liked a specific dish, you can get a family member to cook that dish and bring it to the location where the service is to be held.
- Music - Music is another great way to add to the uniqueness of a funeral or memorial service. You can incorporate some of the decedent's favorite songs or music into the ceremony very easily.
Alternatively, you can create a simple scrapbook, or host a favorite activity, and so much more. There is no short of ideas when it comes to creating a unique service for your loved one.
