FUNERALS are mostly sad, dark and depressing but it really doesn´t need to be that way. They can be warm-hearted, wonderful, wacky or just wonderfully weird, personalisation is a great way to turn a funeral into a celebration of life.
One of the most common requests from people who talk about their funeral plans is ‘no black’. While some will just ask for people to wear their favourite colour or their favourite sports team’s kit, many have more specific requests, such as Hawaiian shirts or even multi-coloured wellies. One Glastonbury fan had the wonderful request everyone who attended their funeral wore wellies in honour of a shared love of the festival.
Arrive in style
