Personalization isn't just about honoring your loved one's individuality. It also allows family and friends to feel connected to the services and the life being honored. We work closely with you and your family to get to know your loved one's life story so we can make their services as personal as possible.

Life Tribute Videos

We'll create a one-of-a-kind Tribute Video by combining family photographs, music of your choice, and professional effects to share your loved one's special journey during the service. This video also is available as a DVD and meaningful keepsake after the ceremony is over.

Personalized Stationery

Our high-quality stationery sets have more than 500 themes you can choose from to honor your loved one. You can view our collection online or we can help you find the perfect theme during our arrangement conference.

Digital Guestbook

Tribute eGuest is a new and improved way to record guests' names and addresses at your loved one's service. By having this information input digitally, we can help you print address labels for thank-you cards and more. We also use this information to help family and friends with aftercare, because grief doesn't stop with the funeral.

Funeral Personalization Ideas

Personalizing a funeral can help ease the pain and stress of arranging a funeral or a memorial service. With the help of dedicated funeral care providers like Mangano Family Funeral Homes, we will provide you with options and ideas for funeral personalization. Some people like to create a tribute video for their loved one, while others might want to include items that were sentimental or important in life. These are all ways that you can show your family member how much they meant to you.


Funeral personalization ideas can be used as an opportunity for families to share stories about their loved ones and remember them fondly. There are so many different options when it comes to memorializing the deceased with personalized touches such as writing messages on memorial cards, creating handmade banners, and designing special jewelry pieces from rings or necklaces belonging to the family members who have died.


You can create t-shirts for each of your family members to wear at the service with a picture of the deceased printed on them. The stories you will be sharing about your loved ones can become more personalized if they are displayed in different areas throughout the house. Stories that take place in different rooms might feel like chapters of a book (i.e., The Kitchen) where mom used to make everyone's favorite dishes, or perhaps memories of boating on Lake Michigan could be told in the Living Room.


Examples of personalized funerals

A personalized funeral is a beautiful way to celebrate the life of your loved one. It can be tailored to include your loved one's favorite music, readings, and activities.


Many people choose to have a funeral ceremony in order to say goodbye to their loved one and share memories with friends and family members. However, a funeral can be expensive and stressful to plan. A personalized funeral can be a more affordable and meaningful alternative.


Here are a few ways to personalize a funeral for your loved one:


1. Decide on a budget and stick to it.

How much you spend will depend on the kind of personalized funeral you want. You should consider your loved one's interests and what would have meant the most to them when thinking about how much money to allocate for their funeral.


2. Make a guest list.

Decide who should be at the memorial service or graveside service, and make sure they receive an invitation or call sheet in advance so that they aren't surprised by what happens during the celebration of life ceremony. Be sure not to forget close friends and family members in this process, as well as anyone who was important to your loved one.


3. Light candles to honor the deceased.

It’s a well known fact that you never forget a smell. And if your family can recall a certain smell that reminds them of their loved one, then we suggest that the family light a few candles that add a healing aroma to the service.


4. Brainstorm unique Memorial Ideas.

Our funeral directors do often ask family members to share what has made their loved ones happy. If you remain open to out-of-the-ordinary funeral ideas and offer multiple options, our directors can help families create a truly meaningful service.


5. Create an epic memorial tribute video.

You probably heard of a memorial tribute video before. Mangano Family Funeral Homes offer Life Tribute Videos to families. We can combine family photographs, music of your choice, and professional effects to share your loved one's special journey during the service. Reach out to us for assistance.
