  • Planning a Post-Funeral Reception

    When arranging a funeral service, it can be difficult to make plans for traditional customs that typically occur after the funeral service, such as a post-funeral reception. Oftentimes, funeral homes can provide support to mourning families by helping them plan a funeral service, burial service, and subsequent memorial service or reception.

    When speaking with the funeral services director at your funeral home, find out if the funeral home provides rooms for families to use for post-funeral receptions. The funeral services director should also be able to help you arrange catering services, and will make sure that information about the memorial or reception is included in the program for the funeral service.
