I am a celebrant, creating bespoke wedding and couples celebration
We’re sorry for your loss and here to help you during this difficult time. Arranging a final wishes event can be a tough task, even if you are well prepared and had discussed wishes with the recently deceased.

It may well be that you have a list of requests provided by the deceased. If this is the case, you may find some unusual or unexpected requests. Speak to your funeral director or humanist to discuss these details. Although it is a nice idea to abide by all wishes, you need to know that these are feasible as soon as possible.
Ask friends and family…
This might be the first funeral you are arranging, or you might not be in the right headspace to be thinking clearly enough to arrange this event. Delegating parts of the organisation might be a wise route for you to take and friends and family are likely to be able to help you at this difficult time.
Use the expertise of the professionals…
Professional suppliers can be there to advise and manage any element of the day to ease your mind. A florist may be able to deliver and set up a venue prior to your arrival. A caterer is likely to come in useful, so that you don’t need to cook and prepare food on the day. You may want to arrange some serving staff so that you’re not busy making cups of tea all afternoon. Although they will come at a cost, the money might be worth it to save you some time and effort.
