About Me

Staying farewell in style

My grandmother was a really stylish old woman. Even when she was sick and when she got frail, she'd still always look perfect and she'd never go anywhere without her lipstick looking immaculate! It was hard to say goodbye to her because she was such a spunky old lady. I knew that she would want her funeral to be a reflection of her style and personality. The funeral did an awesome job and made sure every detail was perfect. It's never great to say goodbye to someone that you love that much, but knowing she'd approve of the funeral did make the day go a little easier.

People You May Want to Consult With When Handling Your Own Funeral Planning

You may know that planning your funeral ahead of time is a smart move since it's a good way to make sure your finances are in order and to take a lot of future pressure and stress off your family. However, you probably aren't going to want to handle your funeral planning all on your own. Instead, you will want to consult with a few people along the way for help with making important funeral-related decisions.

Your Religious Leader

If you are religious, you may want to consult with a priest, pastor or other religious leaders while you're handling your funeral planning. They can talk to you about religious customs that are applicable for your situation. If you are hoping to have a pastor or other religious leader speak at your funeral, they can help you with making arrangements for this as well.

Your Family Members

One of the main reasons why you might be handling your funeral planning now might be because you want to take some of the pressure and stress off of your family members. However, this doesn't mean that you don't want to get them involved in the funeral planning process at all. You may want to ask your closest family members if they have a preference about the type of service that you have, for example. You will probably want to inform them about your plans and wishes so they will be prepared and so they can help ensure that your wishes are respected when you pass away, too.

Your Financial Planner

Funerals can be costly, which is why it's a good idea to start planning for them early. Talk to your financial planner or advisor to set a budget for your funeral and to make arrangements for things like a life insurance policy that can be used to cover your funeral costs.

A Funeral Home Director

Of course, you are going to need to be involved with a funeral home director or another similar professional during the funeral planning process. You'll need to find the right funeral home, such as by looking at things like location and pricing. Then, you can sit down with a funeral home director and talk to them about the plans that you have been making with your religious leaders and your family members. They can talk to you about some of your different options, such as burial versus cremation and about some of the different types of funeral services.
