Virtual Funerals & Life Celebrations

In this day and age, many families live in different parts of the country and even world, so getting together for a funeral, memorial service, or life celebration can be a challenge. Technology developments have fortunately allowed us the ability to create virtual versions of these services as well as incorporate virtual elements into more traditional celebrations.

A celebrant can help you understand all your personalization options and create a meaningful and inclusive virtual service for your loved one.

Why Do Families Choose Virtual Funerals and Memorial Services?

There are many reasons why families choose to have a celebrant officiate their loved one’s funeral, life celebration, or memorial service.  Distance, timing, safety, mobility.

Distance:

Many families are very spread out across the US and the world and traveling to a funeral, life celebration, or memorial service is not always possible.

Timing:

Due to religious or family preferences, funerals sometimes need to take place very quickly, not allowing enough time for all loved ones to come together in person.

Timing Icon

Safety:

Many people are still hesitant to gather in larger groups due to the presence of illness. Virtual events allow family members to still participate from the comfort of their homes.

Mobility:

Not all family members may be physically or financially capable of attending or traveling to a funeral or memorial service. Virtual options can help them still be present and feel like part of the family.

What Is A Virtual Funeral, Memorial Service, or Life Celebration?

A virtual funeral, life celebration, or memorial service is a version of these events, but is conducted online. Interaction generally takes place through video conference software. It is also possible to create a hybrid version of these events, where family members and friends unable to attend the service can watch the event take place from the comfort of their own home. Here are some different ways that virtual technology can be used in honoring your loved one:

  • Virtual gatherings of family hosted by a celebrant
  • Video and photo slideshows
  • Funeral, memorial service, or life celebration live streaming
  • Recorded poem readings, musical tributes, religious text readings, or eulogies
  • Virtual activities done together, such as cooking or painting
  • Social media or online tribute pages

A celebrant is trained in how to work with today’s challenges and technology and can help your family create a meaningful, personalized, and accessible tribute to your loved one.

What Should I Consider When Planning a Virtual Funeral, Life Celebration, or Memorial Service?

What Should I Consider When Planning a Virtual Funeral, Life Celebration, or Memorial Service?

If you are considering a virtual funeral, life celebration or memorial service to honor your loved one, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

Event date/time: Family and friends of the deceased may be widespread across the globe and have work and school commitments during the week, so it is important to take time zones and dates into consideration when planning a virtual service.

What Should I Think About When Planning a Virtual Funeral, Life Celebration, or Memorial Service?

Sensitivity of others: It is important to keep in mind that not everyone may feel comfortable with the use of cameras or video recording around the deceased and their grieving attendees, so having approval from family members is advised.

Accessibility: We recommend testing the software you are planning to use with all people that play a role in the service ahead of time to prevent any technical issues from arising on the day of the service.
