Many of us love to plan things, but we often seem to skip planning for one of the most important events in our life, our funeral. Some of us believe we have more time to plan, while others think it is macabre to plan for our deaths. Either way, it is best to push these preconceived notions away and start early planning for our eventual funerals. This task may seem daunting, but there is a lot of help along the way and many tips that can make this task a lot easier. Here are just a few tips to remember when you are planning a funeral.
Get a price list from any funeral homes you visit. Legally, a funeral home has to give you a price list if you ask for one. By planning ahead and using this price list, you can easily discover which products fit your budget the best and which funeral home has the best value for you.
Try to steer clear of emotional overspending. Funerals are an emotional time, and unfortunately, grief mixed with all the stress associated with a funeral can make many overlook their price list and just start picking services and products to get everything over with. You can avoid this type of overspending by planning ahead when you and your loved ones are not dealing with this difficult time.
You do not have to be embalmed. There is no legal requirement that states you have to be embalmed. Many people are sparing their pocketbooks and the environment by choosing not to be embalmed. If you do not want this process or cannot afford this process, speak up and make sure your wishes are known ahead of time. You should never let anyone talk you into getting something you do not want.
If you want a casket burial, research the type of casket you want. This prices of caskets can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. It all depends on what you want and how much you want to spend. The funeral home should give you a list of their available cakes and the price list for them. Remember you can ask for lower to mid-level priced casket options only, or you could purchase your casket separately from your funeral home. The choice is entirely up to you and what you want.
Do not be afraid to ask for help. Everyone needs help now and then and planning a funeral is a huge task. If you feel overwhelmed, do not be afraid to reach out for help. You could enroll a friend or family member to help. However, if you have already decided on a funeral home, their funeral director should be there to help you with all the decisions and legalities associated with the funeral. They do this for a living and are filled with knowledge. Do not be afraid to use their knowledge to help you plan the best funeral for you.
Planning a funeral can be difficult for us, but we do not want to leave the planning behind for our loved ones. The best way to know that our funeral wishes will be carried out how we want them is to plan ahead. If you want to ensure that you are getting the best funeral for your budget, it is going to take time and research. You do not want to wait until it is too late, and you are sick or stressed before you start planning your final wishes. The best time to start planning is now, while you are healthy and your mind is clear to make the best decisions. So, shake off all this e bad feelings that have you avoiding these decisions and start planning now to save you some grief later.
