Personalization and Traditions for Funeral and Cremation in Ridge, NY


As you are considering your options for funerals and cremations, take a moment to consider how you can add traditions and personalization into these services. Here are a few options you might choose:


  • Venue: The location where funeral or memorial services are held will set the tone for the overall experience of the event. Some families want to create a formal gathering, so it makes sense to hold the gathering at a chapel or funeral home. Or, if you want to create a casual, light-hearted experience, then a backyard or outdoor location might be appropriate.
  • Traditions: What is the best way to honor your family traditions through this event? These traditions can be focused on religious ceremonies such as music, scriptures, or prayer. Or, you might have cultural traditions that honor generations of family history. Pick the traditions that resonate with your family and create a feeling of comfort and familiarity.
  • Music: It’s no surprise that music sets the tone for the overall event. Hymns and church prelude will create a solemn, comforting time when people walk through the door. Or, if you want it to be a life celebration, then you can choose upbeat music based on the genres your loved one enjoyed. Music can be used in the background. You can also include musical pieces in the program.
  • Decorations: Many families like to display photos and videos of the loved one. You can also share other details that honor the person’s life such as their artwork, crafts, sports team jerseys, or anything else that communicates a message about the person.
  • Products: The way a person is laid to rest will determine the type of products you need for the event. For example, burial requires a casket and headstone. Choose colors and designs that showcase their personality. For cremation, you will need to select an urn. A temporary urn is a respectful solution if you will be scattering the ashes. Or, you might have a decorative, beautiful design if you plan to keep the urn in your home.


The most important thing you should always keep in mind: there isn’t a right or wrong way to plan funeral services. You should consider the preferences of your loved one, as well as the details that support the needs of your family.



Timing: Coordinating Future Funeral Services


There are often situations where families don’t have advanced notice for funeral and cremation planning in Ridge, NY.

Often, this approach enables your loved one to participate by sharing their preferences for the event.
