Why Do I Need Funeral Programs?

The funeral program is the only tangible item handed out at the final celebration of life. Some families choose not to have one, but it is important to include since it is a kept and cherished keepsake, even long after the service.

Funeral programs do not have to be elaborate. They can be as simple as a letter size paper, or as elaborate as a program with multiple pages. Although it isn't necessary to have a funeral program for all memorial services, there are many reasons why it is desirable to do so.
If the memorial service is of a religious nature or theme, it can serve as a form of instruction, helping people who are unfamiliar with the order of service to find their way easily and comfortably through the service. The funeral program can also include the words for songs, or hymns, Prayers, and Scripture Readings.
If the service is a secular or a non-religious ceremony, it will inform people of the flow and order, like who will be presenting, delivering the obituary, and what the title of music and lyrics will be played.
For more complicated services, funeral programs are a necessity. For example, if a funeral service were to take place on a boat, the funeral program could explain how the ashes would be scattered, by whom, locations of the boat's destination points and order in which they will arrive.
It helps keep the attendees informed and notified of the events. It serves as a guide for the attendees who may not be familiar with a religious service or have not been at a funeral service before. It helps them to know what to expect. The programs also give people a summary of the loved one's life by capturing the milestones throughout their life. Essentially, the funeral program can include anything you would like to share with attendees that highlights the deceased life.
Remember, it is a celebration of their life, their accomplishments, and the people they have touched. Sometimes, funeral programs can contain more information or photos and can be put together in booklet format. There are no bounds in creating funeral programs. You can make it as elaborate as you'd like depending on how much time and assistance you may have to devote to the project.
Because not everyone has the time to devote to creating more detailed and elaborate funeral programs, there are funeral program templates that can be purchased with the design foundation already done. You only need to enter text and the photos. Whatever type of funeral service you have, a funeral program will be looked upon as a memento each attendee can take with them.
