Memorial Service Brochure

Making final arrangements for a loved one entails a lot of planning and attention to details. One such duty included in this task is setting up a proper memorial event. Creating an order of service funeral program is quite helpful in keeping things in line.

This is a printed handout that is given to each guest in attendance at the memorial event. It contains a complete listing of what will happen, who will be speaking, and each type of tribute to be paid. Creating this piece begins by making a series of choices and decisions.

The first decision is generally which, if any, photograph of the deceased is to be placed upon the cover. The photo should be a recent likeness that is both flattering and shows personality. The use of black and white is fine though color gives the program a brighter, more uplifting feel which many mourners find more comforting.

Decisions such as who will be officiating and what musical selections or verbal readings are to be included in the proceedings are key. It will also be necessary to determine who will deliver each oral piece or perform each song. Once all of this has been settled on, the next step is determining at what point they will be used.

A popular item often included in these programs is the honoree's obituary. Even though people are free to read this tribute in the local papers, it is a special touch to provide each guest with their own keepsake copy. A lot of people collect the printouts as keepsake tokens and the addition of the final tribute is extra thoughtful.

Arranging an order of service funeral program is one of the many tasks necessary when someone passes away. It is a lovely way to pay tribute to the one who has passed on. It also helps keep everyone informed as to what is scheduled to occur during the memorial gathering.
