If you’ve decided a celebration of life is much more fitting for your loved one who has recently passed away than a standard funeral or even a memorial service, you have endless options. One of the first decisions you will have to make is whether to have the funeral home in Coppell, TX do a cremation or a traditional burial. Cremation is much more commonly coupled with a celebration of life. As you plan the event, you will need the right location. Should you use the funeral home or another location? Here are benefits of several options:
The Funeral Home
Funeral homes are good locations for any type of service you wish to have—even a celebration of life. There’s a good amount of space available and funeral homes are generally conveniently located and easy to find. The staff can also set everything yup for you, take care of gifts and flowers, and get the service in order. Having their help takes the burden of logistics off your hands. Plus, you have only one location for all of your needs.
Your Local Church
If your loved one was a member of a church, you might want to celebrate their life in that location. Often, churches have groups that help to organize and serve at receptions that can take place after the event. They also usually have a good amount of space for the service as well as the reception. It’s nice for guests to be able to stay in one location for both rather than traveling to another place.
A Family House
If the celebration of life is meant to be small and family only, having it at someone’s house can give you cherished memories. You’ll have to take care of the details yourself and organize things on your own, but it often keeps things more casual and makes everyone feel comfortable to be somewhere familiar to them.
A Nearby Park
If your loved one enjoyed walking the trails, sitting on the bench, and feeding the birds, you might want to have a celebration of life in that local park. You can combine the celebration with an ash scattering or just use the natural setting for the celebration. You can share memories and enjoy a place they loved at the same time.
