“These days everyone wants to express themselves and show the world their individuality. With the population of the planet at an all time high people feel the need to stake out their own personal space by being unique. In many cases the families of these people like to see them off to the next plane by making unique funeral arrangements after they have passed. Things like unique funeral arrangements can be a designer casket, a special way that the ceremony could run, or even how people should be dressed at the funeral.
For some people unique funeral arrangements may mean trying to let people remember the deceased as he was in life rather than mourning the fact that they are gone. To many people that make unique funeral arrangements they are doing so to try and change the traditional sentiment that funerals need to be depressing. If someone insisted that people have fun when they were alive then they will more than likely want people to remember them as someone who brought a lot of happiness. These days, with the way funerals are traditionally set up, you would need unique funeral arrangements to make a funeral that is a happy celebration of someone’s life rather than a mourning of someone’s death.
Many people make the mistake of saying that unique funeral arrangements are cheap funeral arrangements. Just because a family insists on unique funeral arrangements does not mean that they are trying to save a buck on a funeral. In some cases unique funeral arrangements can cost more than standard funeral arrangements and depending on the arrangements it can get quite expensive. But it is the family’s way of trying to remember the person as they lived and in some cases if that costs a few extra dollars then that is just a small price to pay for someone that brought everyone so much happiness.
Sometimes There Is No Choice
Many people put unique funeral arrangements in their will as their final request and you cannot ignore someone’s final request. In some cases the family is unaware of the unique funeral arrangements until the will is read and that can sometimes be a big surprise to the family. But when someone holds so tightly to their individuality while they are alive it is not uncommon that they want the last great ceremony held in their honor to have unique funeral arrangements that will remind everyone of what the person accomplished while they were alive.”
