For families looking for a stunning and creative way to say goodbye to a loved one, planning a unique memorial service is an excellent way to achieve this. A memorial service differs from a more traditional funeral in that you personalize details of the service to pay tribute to your loved one and the way they lived their life. This allows you to create a service that is one of a kind and truly unique as no two people are the same.
Planning a Unique Memorial
Before you can begin planning the memorial service, you should start by first meeting with a member of our staff to better understand what you want to focus the service around. Your memorial service should focus on what your loved one was passionate about, and this initial meeting can help us understand your vision and offer ideas.
Below we have compiled a selection of creative memorial service ideas to help you plan a memorial service.
A Themed Service
One of the most beautiful places in the world to visit, Italy, could be the theme of your service. Every aspect of this service will make you feel like have taken a trip abroad. The décor, food, music and every other aspect will pay homage to Italy and its heritage. Whether your loved one had immigrated here or had a love for Florence or Rome, this unique memorial theme will take you on a trip back to the old country.
Serve Their Favourite Food
Instead of serving traditional foods like coffee & tea and sandwiches, incorporate their favourite dish. We are willing to work with you and a caterer to offer their favourite dish or appetizer. One thing to remember is that it can be very simple dishes, and we can help you with this process.
The release of doves or balloons is quite common at many funerals. This theme builds off this idea by using the symbolism of taking flight. We recommend incorporating images of doves into the stationary for the service, quotes about taking flight spread our around the service, and origami birds set out as well. With this theme, guests can come together to celebrate the soul of the deceased taking flight and moving on to the afterlife with this elegant and beautiful tribute.
These are just a few of the different ways that you can commemorate your loved one and celebrate their journey through life. A unique memorial service like the ones we have mentioned will allow you to feel a stronger connection to your loved one and create a positive experience your guests will love.
