Creative ideas to personalise a farewell

Involvement doesn’t have to be limited to reading a eulogy or being a pallbearer. There are lots of ways to encourage people to participate in the service and they’ll appreciate having an outlet to express their grief and make a final gesture.

  • Provide coloured post-it notes for people to write messages and place them on the coffin.
  • Ask guests to wear your loved one’s favourite colour.
  • Invite everyone to form an honour guard to say a final farewell.
  • Encourage guests to join in a rousing rendition of a special song.
  • If your loved one was known for their mismatched socks or quirky ties, ask people to follow suit.
