  • Think about how you wish to incorporate your likes and preferences in the chosen ceremonies.
    • Would you want friends and family to follow a specific colour theme in all the arrangements?
    • Is there a favourite song, poem, musical instrument or personal belonging that defines you and should be part of the rites or events?
    • Wish to add any specific photos or flower arrangements to the ceremonies?
    • Prefer a particular venue where friends and family should gather for these events?
  • Specify the way you want your friends and family members to remember you.
