A funeral service is your last goodbye to your loved one that has left this world. Today, many people do not want to conduct a formal funeral service and prefer something less structured. They want to plan a funeral service that is not just unique but also personalized and thoughtful. The idea is that it should hold special meaning for them and the rest of the family members while remembering their loved ones uniquely.

How To Use Songs to Personalize a Funeral Service

We at Ocean County Cremation Service have seen this as a growing trend, which is why we have put together some information and suggestions that can be useful in this respect:

  • Consider playing some songs or music that your loved one enjoyed listening to. It’s one of the simplest ways to create a special ambiance on that day. You can select some music and get input from your family members to develop a list of songs that your loved one might have particularly liked listening to.
  • You can play the music on low volume at the funeral service venue and have some of your family members share stories and anecdotes about your loved one.
  • When selecting songs, choose ones with decent lyrics, ensuring that you do not offend any of the attendees. The songs must have some meaning, and it’s best to stay away from anything that could be remotely offensive.
  • If your loved one sang any specific songs, play those at the venue. The idea is to pay homage to the decedent in a more personalized way.
