Planning A Beautiful Service

When my grandmother passed away, I was astonished to learn that I had been named the executor of her estate. After splitting up her belongings amongst my aunts and uncles, I turned my attention to planning her funeral. I didn't know where to start. Fortunately, I was able to find an excellent funeral home that understood how to help people plan beautiful memorial services. It was amazing to go through the process of planning the music, the speakers, and even the set-up of the room. This blog is all about planning gorgeous memorial services for the people that you love so that you aren't left grappling with difficult decisions.

The Benefits Of Choosing Cremation Services


Perhaps the most difficult decision for individuals to make when planning a funeral is the choice between cremation and burial. If you are struggling to make this choice for yourself, it is important to look at the benefits that both options have to offer. However, if you are like many people, you will ultimately discover that cremation services offer several benefits that traditional burial services do not. You can learn more about some of these benefits below.


Cost is an important factor for many people when planning a funeral. This remains true regardless of if they are planning a funeral for a recently deceased loved one or preplanning for their own funeral service. In many cases, individuals will find themselves struggling to strike the right balance between providing a quality funeral service and sticking to their budget. Choosing cremation services over traditional burial services can help to make striking this balance considerably easier. This is because, despite the many benefits that cremation has to offer, cremation services are traditionally far more affordable than burial services. One of the main reasons for this is that there is no need to purchase a burial plot when choosing to use cremation services. Even if you wish to have the cremains buried at a local cemetery, the cost of a plot will be much less since less space is required to bury an urn than to bury a casket. The cost of purchasing an urn is also more affordable than the cost of purchasing a casket. All of these factors combine to make cremation the most affordable option available. 

Ceremonial Options

Cremation offers a much wider range of options when it comes to what you want to be done with your remains. For example, if you want loved ones to be able to keep you close, your cremains can be placed into a decorative urn that can be kept at home or a small portion of your ashes can be used to make memorial jewelry which your loved ones can take with them wherever you go. You can also choose to have your ashes spread in a special place as part of a memorial service. You can choose a final resting place that was important to you during your lifetime or somewhere you wish you had the opportunity to visit. You can even choose to have your ashes scattered using a memorial fireworks display. The ceremonial options are virtually endless when choosing cremation over burial.
