Memorial Service Ideas for Families Who Choose Cremation
Many people feel that they can’t conduct a memorial service or visitation when they opt for cremation rather than a burial. This is not always the case and you can have a memorial service or wake after cremation as well.
Memorial Service Ideas
At Willowbrook Cemetery, we have seen that many people prefer to conduct a memorial service because it’s far easier to organize than a wake or visitation. However, you can plan it in the way you like and find peace in the option you choose. Here we discuss a few memorial service ideas if you opt for cremation:
- You can display the decedent’s achievements. It’s a good way to highlight memories related to the decedent’s family members. You can display photographs, awards, certificates, and medals the person received as this will display that person in a positive light. Family and friends can also contribute to this effort and you can ask them to share their memories in the form of photos and other items.
- Another way to conduct a memorial service is to collate videos and pictures of the person and project them on a large screen at the venue. It can help bring back memories and special moments you shared with your loved one. This can lend a personalized and intimate touch to the memorial service.
- Playing the decedent’s favorite music at the service venue is another way to personalize the event after cremation. You can play the type of music your loved one enjoyed listening to and it can help remind attendees of the good times they spent with the person.
