Once you decide on cremation services in Frankton, IN for a loved one who has passed away, you can rest easy that the memorial service has no timeline on it. You can organize whatever you want for your loved one on whatever timeframe you want it on. It can be nice to put things off a bit to let family have a chance to plan and travel and to give you time to plan something really special. Whenever you decide to hold the memorial, if you want to do so outside, there are things you will want to think about to make things go smoothly. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Wind Conditions For Scattering
If part of the service is a scattering ceremony for your loved one, you will want to take the wind into account. If winds are high and gusty, it might not be the best day for a scattering. If the winds are blowing a certain direction, you want to make sure you scatter downwind of your guests out of respect for both them and your loved one. Winds are very important and play a part in any scattering you are going to do so be sure to check weather reports.
You will want to try and choose a time that has decent weather, but that can be hard as you never know what that’s going to look like from day to day. If you find that you have chosen a day, and as it nears, rain is likely, you will want to be prepared. Either have a tent, lots of umbrellas, an indoor backup location, or another date that you can move the services to. The weather could be lovely and everything could work out great, but you’ll want to prepare for alternatives in case things sour.
Think about where you are going to have the services and what could occur because of that location. If you are having the memorial on your own private property, you can organize things however you want and it should be fine. If you are having a service in a public park, there might be people playing frisbee nearby or a dog wandering through. Think about what the location is like and how you can work around the things that might happen because of where you are.
