Facts You Should Notice When Building Funeral Program

Because not all burial processes are the same, it helps to have a something that can help guide those in attendance through each step. For those unfamiliar with what to expect, this assistance can make an already emotional situation just a little more comfortable. Creating a funeral service program can be done rather quickly once key decisions have been made.

The cover should serve as an announcement for the occasion as many people use the pamphlets as keepsakes. The front page normally has a nice photograph of the honoree, along with their full name and dates of birth and passing. Some families like to add a caption that expresses an appropriate sentiment.

The inside of this bulletin is customizable since services may be personalized to the individual. It contains the order of proceedings as well as any extras like poems and additional photos. As these are often saved in scrapbooks, it may also be prudent to include a copy of the obituary.

One page inside the pamphlet should be dedicated to the timeline of events. This normally starts with procession or entrance, followed by introductions and opening remarks, continuing with any hymns, prayers, songs or passages to be used as part of the memorial. It ends with the eulogy and additional tributes, closing prayers, blessings or committals and lastly, the recessional.

Authors and composers of any tribute pieces used or played during the event should be properly credited in the bulletin. The officiant, speakers, pall bearers or other participants should also be duly noted. This helps others to identify who is doing what and to later locate a song, verse or other item they found particularly comforting or moving.

Printing out a funeral service program to hand out to all who attend the memorial helps things run more smoothly. It serves as a way to let everyone know what is going to happen and the order in which things will occur. This is also a way to provide each mourner with a keepsake to remember and honor a lost friend, associate or family member.
