When you lose someone you love or close to you, it is quite a complicated process. While you are grieving, you will also need to take care of the funeral arrangements. Preparing for a funeral includes many steps, such as planning the venue, date and time, and planning a funeral reception invitation. All these formalities can be overwhelming when you are already burdened by the loss of someone near to you. With our funeral service template, we hope to make this process a little easier for you.
Let’s get to the basics first. A funeral reception is organized during the funeral. It gives everyone a chance to attend the funeral and pay their last respects. To this effect, an invitation is sent out requesting everyone to participate in the funeral. A funeral reception invitation not only informs everyone about the person’s death but also tells about the reception details.
A funeral service invitation ensures that everyone close to the deceased person has been informed and gets a chance to attend the funeral.
Traditionally you are required to include the following details:
- Full name of the deceased person and date of death.
- Date, time, and venue where the funeral service will take place.
- Names of immediate family members.
- Any music/hymns that will be played/sung at the event
- Any request for flowers or donations to a chosen charity.
Some people may also choose to include sections such as a biography of the deceased person, notes from people close to the deceased, favorite quotes, etc.
With so many details to be included in a funeral reception invitation, it is good to take help from other family members and friends.
The first crucial step is to plan and gather all the details printed in the funeral reception invitation. When you are already grieving, doing this task all alone can be cumbersome. You can talk to your family to plan all the details to be included.
Then, you can ask volunteering members to gather information for you. Once you have all the information on hand, you are ready to get the invitations finalized and printed.
Many websites are there to help you with this task. You can log in to a website that specializes in funeral reception invitations. Generally, most sites provide choices for layouts, design, font, text, etc. You can finalize all the aspects to your liking and place an order.
Once you have finalized the order, the websites will get everything ready and deliver them as per your requirements.
Passing of a loved one, while heartbreaking, is also an opportunity for the family and friends to come together and celebrate the life and times of the deceased person.
