When you plan your own cremation services in Las Vegas, NV, you have the luxury of time on your side. You have the time you need to think things out, decide just how you want everything to go, and the ability to make special requests. You can put whatever plans you want into place. While some people want a traditional memorial service, others want their loved ones to celebrate their life in a unique manner. When you go through the options, consider some of these ideas to turn the standard cremation service into more of a celebration over your life. 

Bring Out The Inner Child With Bubbles 

Age is just a number and if you always felt like you were just a big kid, even as you grew into an adult and perhaps even an elderly individual, you want to showcase that spirit in your memorial service. Allow your loved ones to have a little fun and celebrate your kid-like spirit by playing with bubbles at your service. Have an outdoor cremation service and ask people to blow bubbles in your honor. It’s a fun way for them to remember your spirit and it can turn a standard service into a celebration in a heartbeat. 

Suggest Icebreakers 

Cremation services can be whatever you want them to be and as you think about the people who will likely attend, you may realize they don’t know each other very well. Your family members may not know your former co-workers or even some of your acquaintances. You want all of the special people in your life to gather together to show their respects and to comfort one another. One way to encourage them in forming relationships and being less uncomfortable with those they don’t know is to suggest an icebreaker as part of the service. It’s an impactful way for people to share memories and get to know one another at your memorial service. 

Request An Open Mic 

There can be one speaker presiding over a memorial service, but there might be others that have something to share as well. Allow everyone to have their say by asking for an open mic at the event. People can share stories, or even songs, and create a celebration in the name of love and your life. It can be a nice time for even those close to you to learn about something in your life they didn’t know of before the event. 

These are just a few ways you could create cremation services in Las Vegas, NV that are more celebrations of your life when you plan in advance. Think things through and consider what you want and what your family needs.
