Planning a Celebration-of-Life

While it can be a challenge to put together an event that both pays tribute to and celebrates the life of an individual, it's also very rewarding. Celebrations-of-life focus on the unique lifestyle and personality of the deceased.

Steps in Planning a Celebration-of-Life

Who will be invited? The number of guests define the where, when, and how of your celebration-of-life.

When should the event take place? Consider the most ideal time for those who may have to travel to the event.

Who wishes to speak at the event? Some family members or friends will volunteer to make a presentation while others may need to be asked. Select those people who have shared a close relationship with the deceased and have something meaningful to contribute.

What group activities would be appropriate? There are countless ways to celebrate a life. Think about what your loved one liked most about their life and give everyone an opportunity to share memories, laugh, and cry together.

What food or beverages should be served? What you serve may depend on the theme of your celebration-of-life or may be based on your loved one's favorite dishes. It's entirely up to you.

What readings and music should you include? Music is a major part of life for many people and a celebration-of-life can showcase any selections. You may also decide to  read spiritual or literary selections.

What details of your loved one's life do you want to share with guests? Tell anecdotes or stories that describe your loved one's character.

What decorations will you have? Many families create a tribute video while others choose photographs and other memorabilia.
