Cremations have become increasingly popular in recent years. Cremations can happen before or after a ceremony, allowing families to offer friends and other relatives a chance to say their final goodbyes before having the procedure done. Cremations that occur before a memorial service is another suitable choice, as the person may no longer be there in body, but he or she is still there in spirit. Honor a loved one's passing during a memorial ceremony following a cremation with a flowered wreath that can surround the urn that holds the ashes. Consider what colors will be on the urn, if it is going to be a single color, many flowers will go nicely, however if there is a pattern, it may be best to select neutral blooms like white flowers, greenery and one other hue.


A memorial picture of the lost loved one offers a warm touch that really helps bring out the best of a person's life. Not only will this help to add a special touch to the ceremony, but it will remind guests coming to pay their respects that life is everlasting, as seen with the beautiful blossoms. It may be a good idea to figure out what type of flowers a lost relative loved the most, as selecting the person's favorite blossoms will help to honor him or her even more.
