How to Organize a Funeral

The Ultimate Guide for Emotional Support

When someone close to us dies, it’s hard to know what to do. The natural instinct is often to try and take care of everything ourselves, but this can be incredibly difficult – and it’s important to remember that you need time to mourn, too. Matt Manske will walk you through the process of organizing a funeral, from start to finish. We’ll also discuss some ways to get emotional support during this difficult time.

The first thing you need to do is decide who will be responsible for the funeral arrangements. This is typically the surviving spouse or partner, but it could also be a close family member or friend. Once you’ve decided who will be taking care of things, you need to start making some decisions about the service.

Do you want a traditional funeral service, or something more unique? Would you like to have the service at a church, or another location? What kind of music would you like played? These are all important questions that need to be answered before you can move forward with the arrangements.

Once you have a general idea of what you want, it’s time to start contacting vendors. You’ll need to find a funeral home that can provide the services you’re looking for, as well as a caterer, florist, and anyone else who will be involved in the service. Be sure to get quotes from multiple vendors before making any decisions – and don’t be afraid to negotiate!

Now that you have all of the logistics taken care of, it’s time to start thinking about the more personal aspects of the service. Who do you want to speak at the funeral? What kind of readings or poems would you like to have? These are all things that need to be decided in advance so that everything can run smoothly on the day of the service.
