Personalizing A Funeral With Unique Song Selections

Many families today prefer more informal funeral services instead of the traditional format. The idea is to add something special and unique. People find that this also helps them heal better and come to terms with their grief faster. One of the best ways to create a more personalized ambiance at the funeral service is to play music.

Use Music to Personalize the Funeral

At George Darte Funeral Home, we believe that it is crucial to select the right kind of music for the event. It can change the mood at the funeral service and help bring back memories of your loved one. Here are some valuable tips:

  • Play songs that your loved one preferred. It’s the simplest way to create a personal feel at the funeral. Select pieces from artists that the person listened to often and enjoyed.
     
  • Choose the songs that bring back fond memories. For example, pick something that has special meaning for your loved one, like a song played during the first dance at their wedding. You can also encourage other family members to share a few words about the decedent during the funeral.
     
  • Make sure that the lyrics of the songs you pick have some meaning and not contain any profanity. Pick something lively rather than melancholy, as it is a way to celebrate that person’s life.
     
  • You can also discuss this with your family and get their inputs. If they have some specific song recommendations, listen to them first before adding them to the list.

Talk to a funeral director and request them to make arrangements for playing the music. If you want to know more about pre-planning a cremation or funeral service or need to book one, contact George Darte Funeral Home. You can call 905-937-4444 or use our contact form.
