Flowers, Poems and Beautiful Elements for Funerals

Hi, my name is Maxine, and I'm glad you find my blog. A few years ago, I lost my husband, and I learned how challenging it can be to plan a funeral. Luckily, I had the help of a great funeral director to guide me. One of the things he impressed upon me was the need to make funerals beautiful. There are a host of ways that you can do that, and they include everything from readings to songs and from flowers to the venue. If you are planning a funeral, I offer condolences on your loss, and I hope you can find the information you seek here. Thank you for reading!

Reasons to Pre-Plan Your Funeral Arrangements

Not many people like to think about what would happen in the event they die. Thus, it is not uncommon to find that funeral arrangements end up being an unexpected expense, which can make the process of organising the burial quite stressful. Pre-planning your funeral arrangements is not exclusive to individuals who have a chronic illness. Whether you are in good health or not, the following are some of the reasons to pre-plan your funeral arrangements.

Pre-planning your funeral ensures your wishes are honoured

By opting to pre-plan your funeral, you proactively take measures to ensure that your final goodbye will be as you would want it. Since you will be paying in advance for the funeral services, you have the opportunity to choose anything and everything that you prefer, based on your budget. Some of the different arrangements that you could put in place include the type of music that would be played at your funeral, your burial or cremation preferences, whether you want your body to be viewed, if you would like flowers, setting aside a funeral lot and more. The more detailed your arrangements are, the higher the chances your funeral will be as you envisioned it to be.

Pre-planning your funeral eases the burden on your loved ones

When you pass away, chances are your family will be overcome with grief. Without pre-planning, your family will be charged with having to contend with making decisions about how to give you a proper send off while dealing with their emotional state. If you have a particularly small family, such as just your spouse or maybe just a single child, it may be too much responsibility to bear. It would be much easier for whoever you have left behind if the funeral home already has a record of how you would like your passing on to be handled. Thus, your loved ones have the opportunity to honour your memory and deal with the grief, without worrying about serious responsibilities.

Pre-planning your funeral could be cost efficient

The rising cost of living will inevitably affect your funeral expenses. You may have decided that you would like an inexpensive ceremony, but this would be out of your hands considering the inflation and fluctuating prices. When you chose to pre-plan your funeral, you get the chance to pay in advance. These payments can be in the form of bond plans or by opting for a pre-paid payment plan, which can be invaluable for your loved ones, as they may not have to spend a single cent on the funeral services.
