Basic Details To Know When Planning Funeral Service 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.

As each event is different, the inside should be customized to fit the individual being honored. Additional photographs, favored poems and verses as well as the order of actions can all be included as desired. Many people find having the obituary printed on one of the pages to be an especially touching sentiment.

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.

Verses and passages should be identified by the works in which they are found and their authors, and musical pieces are also to have their artists or composers credited. The officiant, all speakers and participants need to be noted by name in the printout. This is respectful and lets mourners access the information again at a less stressful time.

A funeral service program is useful in conducting a smoother memorial. It provides everyone with useful information and the order of events that are scheduled. This item has the added benefit of acting as a sentimental keepsake for those who are dealing with the loss of someone close.
