Facts You Should Notice When Planning Funeral Service Program

There are so many ways to direct death proceedings that it can be most helpful to have a printed guide for mourners who attend them. It helps those unfamiliar with the process understand the events that are happening and keeps everyone informed. Putting a funeral service program together is a fairly easy task when the details have been decided.

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.

The page containing the order of events needs to contain nothing else. It begins by noting the entry procession, who will be introduced and welcome remarks followed by the scriptures, readings and musical numbers that will make up the memorial. The last few items are special speakers and tributes, the eulogy, any closing sentiments or prayers and ending with the recessional.

Any written works or musical pieces are to be identified in print, by their author, location or composer. All participants, including the officiant, pall bearers, speakers and performers should also be noted. This gives credit but also helps mourners remember who did what and how to locate items they liked at a later date.

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.
