Pre-planning your funeral has numerous advantages
When a loved one passes on, it often falls on grieving family members to make last-minute funeral arrangements. Not knowing what the deceased wants, the best they can do is guess what kind of ceremony, casual or formal, the deceased wanted, leading to unpopular choices and unnecessary family squabbles.
The easy solution is to pre-arrange your funeral.
Memorial services come in all shapes and sizes. Perhaps you want a traditional or religious service, or a more casual tribute outdoors with friends and family? Perhaps you would like the music you loved played during the visitation, or would prefer it played live? Do you have favourite photos and videos you'd want to share? Hospitality? A meal for the guests? A wine bar in the garden?
With so many options for funerals today, pre-arranging your service not only relieves the family of a potential costly and often confusing responsibility, it provides mourners with a uniquely personal experience of the deceased. Visitation, memorial services, cremation or burial, commemoration services or traditional reception, these are all aspects of the funeral process you'll want to consider. It's your choice when you pre-plan your funeral.
Preplanning is the opportunity to have precisely the kind of funeral you want, sharing what you loved with the people you love. It's also important to consider that by preplanning your funeral today, you lock in your costs in today's dollars.
Most of all, preplanning your funeral, you give your loved ones the gift of being able to grieve and mourn their loss unencumbered by the responsibilities of staging a funeral.
