Some Useful Tips on Arranging DIY Funeral Services

Funeral Services

This might happen several times in anybody’s life that he has to make arrangements for funeral services. In most cases, people hire some professionals from a funeral home known by the name of funeral directors. Experts say that even if you reject the idea of hiring them, you can organise a top class ceremony, provided that you follow the tips discussed in this post.

Decide the location
  • This becomes mandatory, if you plan to organise outdoor funeral services.
  • While choosing the location, you should keep in mind, the places that are scenic, peaceful, away from city’s traffic and have a special meaning.
  • Alternatively, you can decide to perform this in family member’s backyard as well other than a local park or garden, or the cemetery or the ash scattering location.
  • However, prior to this, you need to make sure that you have got the permission of using that area for this specific reason.
  • You can use the concept of dedicating a memorial bench, if you are too keen on honouring the memory.
  • For this, you can check with your local park to find out the requirements for dedicating a bench.

Adding some Personalization
  • To make the funeral services more memorable and attractive, you can think about incorporating a seasonal theme.
  • This means that in the spring season, you can include floral photo wraths, pastels and some traces of greens.
  • You can even decide about adding spring-themed decorations such as rain boots and umbrellas filled with flowers and others.
  • Similarly, in the fall season, you can use leaves, hay bales, pumpkins, and warm reds, oranges, yellows, and browns.

Other tips that you can use to perform funeral services without a funeral director are –
  • Go green to protect the environment and not cause any financial burden on the family
  • Use the concept of having a releasing ceremony as a tribute
  • Make outdoorsy mementos by using nature-inspired decorations
