Nobody ever desires to be faced with a situation where they have to choose a coffin for their loved ones. When the time arises below are a few guidelines to help you choose the right coffin befitting the final send off for your dearly departed loved one.
Personality of the Loved One
The coffin you choose should reflect on the personality of the loved one. For example, if the deceased had a preference for a particular style or his favorite color is well known to you, then you would make them happy by choosing a coffin in their favorite colors.
How the Coffin Will be Used
If you intend to cover the coffin with lots of flowers, then there will be no need choosing a grandiose coffin. But if it will be an open funeral coffin, then you might desire that the color and the design should be in tandem with the aesthetic preferences of the final presentation of the dearly departed loved one.
Morals of the Departed
The morals of the departed should also be considered when choosing the coffin. For instance, if he or she were someone who was environmentally conscious, it would be an insult to them if the coffin purchased and made from rare and exotic woods.
Cost and Budget
It may sound unrefined to think about funeral costs at this time, but you should exercise caution and be aware of your budget when selecting a coffin for your loved one. The fact of the matter is that your beloved is no longer with you and most likely would understand any budget limitations. Therefore, choose a coffin that you are happy with and is reasonably priced so that the ones responsible for the funeral cost doesn’t plunge in debt after the funeral is over.
