Funeral arrangements are never easy to plan on your own. It takes ample preparation, overcoming grief, and strong communication between family members. Here are a few steps from our professionals to keep the whole process as swift and sound as possible.
Where to Start with Funeral Arrangements
Inform Necessary Parties
Getting on contact with the family and staying on top of communication is an important first step. This allows others to assist in the process and not give you as much of a burden to bare. Additionally, you get a bit of relief from the day to day that you’ll have to keep up with as well.
Flower arrangements are crucial to remember the family member by. Overall, you should start with their favorite flowers and branch from there. Each new addition can be a beautiful piece of the display that you make entirely unique to the loved one. Take your time with this process and don’t stress too much over how they end up looking. Flowers simply being a part of the ceremony is a beautiful tradition to carry out.
Prepare Something Written
When you are organizing a funeral, you need to be prepared to speak in front of others. This can be very hard because of the circumstances. First, you should write something out that clearly outlines every anecdote and story you want to tell. Then you can focus more so on keeping yourself composed and not on what you’ll say, but how you’ll say it.
If you’re worried about how the words are going to come out, keep it short and sweet. You can convey a whole lot with simple phrases, personal connections to the loved one, and more. It also can be a healthy exercise to frame it as if you’re speaking directly to them. But, that can also make it harder to deliver. Find the perfect sweet spot with some practice runs.
