Your loved one’s interests and ideas were unique and fascinating. What better way to share their honor and their personality one final time with a unique funeral service? Funerals can easily be customized to bring in interesting elements from personalized order of service booklets to a release of doves after the graveside ceremony. See how you can bring a touch of character to a day that is already filled with strong emotions.

Integrate Hobbies Into the Memorial


Was your loved one a Star Wars fan or an avid gardener? No matter their interests, you can bring these elements into the viewing and memorial service in a variety of different ways. Consider putting together a special table that funeral attendees can view or interact with. Funeral flowers in their favorite team’s colors are always appreciated, especially for avid sports fans.

Create a Beautiful Remembrance For a Unique Funeral Service


Friends and family members truly appreciate having a way to remember this day and providing a thoughtful remembrance can evoke powerful emotions. While many families utilize a traditional funeral booklet, you can unleash your creativity and integrate tidbits of your loved one on each page. Consider offering small, personalized candles or bubbles to visitors, perhaps with a verse or poem that helps bring everything together.

Interactive Ideas for Guests


You may have a guest book available, but you can also take this idea a step further. What about providing guests with river rocks and markers, allowing them to create a personalized message of remembrance for the family? Another idea is to put together a memory capsule and ask funeral attendees to bring something that reminds them of your loved one to add to the capsule. The family will appreciate seeing all of the lives that their loved one touched over the years.
