5 Cremation Ceremony Ideas for Your Loved Ones
When someone important to us passes away, we need to grieve and mourn their passing. We hold a ceremony to honor their life, and we try our best to make it special and meaningful.
While most of us tend to think that the traditional funeral is about death and sadness, cremation, on the other hand, allows us to have a more celebratory way to honor our deceased loved ones.
So if you are thinking about putting a cremation ceremony to celebrate and remember the life of someone you love, here are some fantastic cremation ceremony ideas. (Related: What To Do With Cremation Ashes)
A Memorial Ceremony At Home
Back in the day, memorial ceremonies are usually held at the deceased’s house until funeral homes started handling memorial services. If you want to keep it simple, have a memorial ceremony at your deceased loved one’s home.
Scattering Of Ashes
The scattering of cremated remains has become popular. And you can have a memorial service in the same location where you plan to scatter the ashes.
But whatever way you choose for your loved one, the location should never be a limitation of memorial ceremonies. (Related: 7 Creative Ash-Scattering Ceremony Ideas)
The Traditional Flowing and Sky Lanterns
Another popular method of releasing ceremony is using a paper lantern. The use of a Japanese flowing lantern and the Chinese sky lantern both symbolizes light and hope. They believe that all humans originally came from water, so the paper lanterns guide the spirits in returning to the elements.
A Memorial Community Service Event
If your dearly departed is very much involved in the community, then why not put a memorial community service? Most people are used to memorial ceremonies where guests sit the whole time reminiscing. Organize a memorial community service event where not only it makes a lovely tribute to your loved one but also does a good deed for the community.
A Memorial Party
While throwing a party as a memorial ceremony is not usual, some people now prefer it to commemorate their dearly departed. People call it a “celebration of life.” So, instead of grieving and focusing on your loved one’s death, you can focus on the joy that the person brought to others.
