When you’re planning cremation service in Springfield, TN
for a loved one, it’ll feel like you have to make a million and one
decisions. It’s easy to overlook some of these decisions and wait until
the last minute to make them. But there is one decision that you should
not take lightly—deciding what your loved one is going to wear when
Some people don’t realize this, but families have the option of
dressing their loved ones up in whatever way they want just before
they’re cremated. They can put any outfit on them and let it be the last
thing that they wear. Check out how to go about choosing what your
loved one will wear for their cremation services below.
Decide if you want your loved one to wear something special.
You don’t have to put your loved one into a special outfit if you
don’t want to. While some families choose to do it, others choose to do
little more than put a sheet over their loved ones. They can’t bear the
thought of parting ways with clothing that belonged to their loved one.
You and your family will have to decide if you want to dress your loved
one up at all.
Consider what your loved one would have wanted to be cremated in.
In some instances, a person who pre-plans their cremation services
will indicate what they want to be cremated in. Or they’ll tell their
family members what they want to be wearing when they’re cremated ahead
of time. If your loved one did one of these things, great. But if they
didn’t, it’ll be up to you to think about what they would have wanted to
be wearing at the time of their cremation. Try to consider which
outfits of theirs held some significant value to them.
Think about putting your loved one into an outfit that meant something to you.
If you can’t find an outfit that was special to your loved one, how
about an outfit that was special to you and your family? Maybe your
parent wore a certain suit or dress to every wedding and other special
occasion that they attended. Or maybe they wore a certain jersey and
sweatpants every Sunday to watch their favorite sports team play.
Outfits like these would be perfect for cremation services.
Make sure you deliver the clothing that your loved one will be cremated in on time.
Regardless of which clothing you decide to outfit your loved one in
for their cremation, it’s important for you to deliver the clothes to
your funeral home as soon as you possibly can. If you wait until the
last second to make a delivery, it could complicate things and even
delay the cremation process.
