In today’s world, most people try to plan for everything. Even if those plans fall a little short, we still try to make them work. There always seems to be something to plan for such as getting married, buying your first home, having children, vacations and eventually our retirement. However, many of us have not given plans for our funeral any thought.
The majority of us may not even want to think about it let alone plan our funeral. It can seem a little intense for us to face, or we may simply believe our funeral will take a long time to come. However, it is never too early to start planning your funeral arrangements. You will not want to leave your family having to piece together all of your arrangements once you are gone. It can be a very emotional time for them and facing so many decisions at once can be overwhelming. By simply preplanning your funeral, you can help take some of the burden and stress off of your loved ones and also guarantee that you get the funeral you want.
However, you need to remember that there are numerous mistakes that can be made during the planning process, but you should not worry because we have gathered the most common mistakes here to help you along the way.
Never wait for an illness to strike before you start planning your funeral. For some reason, most people equate planning a funeral with having an illness. However, this is not what you want to do. In the real world, you will want to be healthy when you have to put forth all the time and energy necessary to plan your funeral. Also, you should never stress your already stressed and sick body as you are trying to plan your funeral. You should also consider that your loved ones will also be stressed and emotional if you are sick. The best way to preplan your funeral would be to get everything settled while you are still healthy.
Being unclear on your funeral wishes. You will want to consult with all of the appropriate professionals and determine what you would like at your service. You will want to decide on and document all of the necessary details such as cremation or burial, open casket, visitation, food, pictures, music, etc. Whatever you would like in your service, you need to discuss in detail with these professionals. Remember to never be afraid to speak up or ask questions. This needs to be done to help make sure that your wishes and instructions are followed precisely. This will help your family rest easy and know that your funeral is exactly how you wanted it.
Excluding your friends and family from the planning process. It can be hard discussing your end of life plans with your family; however, they still need to be kept in the loop. Luckily, it is not necessary to discuss every little detail with them, but they must know who to get in contact with when you pass away. If you do not inform them of who holds all these wonderful plans for your service, it will be as if they are starting at ground zero. If you want to ensure that all your planning will pay off, then you must let your family know who to contact, so they can easily fulfill your wishes.
Allowing price to be the biggest factor in your decisions. Of course, we all want an affordable funeral. Who would actually want to spend a lot on something we will not be around to enjoy. On the other side of this, there are also some of us who during emotionally stressful times tend to overspend. It is one way of dealing with our stress. However, if you preplan your funeral, you will eliminate this stressful overspending and be more apt to make the best and most appropriate decisions for your funeral. You will also have the time needed to research and choose the best options available.
Preplanning your funeral is honestly one of the best choices you will ever make. It can ensure that you get what you really want with your funeral service and help to relieve some excess stress from your loved ones. You will also be able to take all the time you need to research and choose the best options for your funeral with the most reasonable price tags. It is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
