Personalizing a Funeral Service on a Budget

Published: November 13, 2020
by Franklin Rainear Jr.

Funerals provide a great deal of solace and comfort to the family and friends of the deceased. They are generally a serious and solemn event that can be planned in any which way you want and also helps you cope with your loss. We at Franklin Rainear Jr. Funeral Home understand that funerals can be a financial burden, especially if you’re on a budget.

While many people want to personalize the funeral service that they’re organizing, it might get challenging to do so on a tighter budget. Here are a few useful tips that you can incorporate:

· Opt For Good Music – If the deceased has a favorite song or loved any other type of music, you can decide to play those at the service. However, it's crucial to select songs that don't have any profanity or offensive lyrics. This could potentially hurt the attendees' feelings. Good music can set the right tone for the rest of the event and will memorialize the departed uniquely.

· Place A Few Personal Items Of The Deceased- The inclusion of personal items like photos, musical instruments, artwork, or collectibles is a great touch. In case the deceased had other interests like movies, you can do something unconventional by displaying movie posters.

· Read Stories, Poems, Or Verses – Reading out small stories or other relevant verses during the funeral service is another excellent idea. If the decedent had a favorite book, you could read out a few key lines from them with the attendees.

We hope this information has helped you understand how to choose the right funeral home. We, at Franklin Rainear Jr. Funeral Home, offer comprehensive funeral services. For more information regarding funerals or any other related topics contact us or register at our website.
