Planning the funeral of a loved one is never easy especially when we are still in grieve. In order to ease some of the emotional burden, this guide on Christian Funeral Packages will help you to plan the funeral of the dearly departed.
Tips on Choosing Christian Funeral Packages
Consult the immediate family members first to get a better understanding of how the funeral should be best conducted. Remember to also check if the dearly departed has any will stating how he wants his last rites to be conducted or any insurance policy that might help cover his final expenses which would include the Christian Funeral Packages.
Start with the Right Attitude
You should begin the process by having the proper mindset. Making decisions related to the Christian Funeral Packages will not feel overwhelming if you think that it will help the family members to overcome the process of grieving. Think about something that will highlight the life of the deceased. Choose something that is respectful and dignified but make sure that it won’t be overly morbid or depressing. Aside from mourning, the theme of the funeral wake should also have a theme of joy and hope.
Choose The Most Apt Funeral Home
Before you even choose your Christian Funeral Packages, you should first choose the funeral home offers such packages. In case you are finding it hard to find a reputable funeral group, you may ask your church for their recommendations. Their staff would support and guide you through the entire process. Sometimes, they would help prepare the legal documents, choose the casket for burial or cremation, write the obituary and all elements related to the funeral wake.
Set Your Budget
Set aside a reasonable amount of money you would be willing to pay for a decent funeral package. A decent basic funeral would cost a minimum of about four thousand dollars. Work your requests and wants around the budget that is set so as to optimise the use of your money.

You have to choose the person responsible for directing the funeral service; he can be a pastor,a minister or a funeral director. The place where the funeral service will be held is also a crucial part.

Wanting to hold the funeral at a void deck?
You would probably need a canvas tentage to be set up in the vicinity in order for the funeral to be held at a void deck.
Holding wakes at void decks is a popular choice for Singaporeans as funeral parlors can sometimes be inconveniently situated for family members. Coupled with the limited amount of land in Singapore designated as parlors that translates into high occupancy rates, parlors are not always available whenever needed.
A full tentage set up costs S$1,380 for 3 days.
This makes the final cost to be $4,360 for a 3 day funeral held at the void deck, without any hidden costs.
The above package includes everything that is needed for a simple, dignified funeral.
