Celebrations of Life Service Venue

Planning a Celebration of Life Service

A celebration of life service is typically held in lieu of a memorial service although it is becoming more common to host this type of gathering in place of a traditional funeral.  Instead of being a somber event, guests use this time to talk, laugh and share the good times they had with the person who died.

Celebration of life services are either intimate with close family and friends or larger and include business colleagues and extended family members. The size depends on budget, as well as the personality and lifestyle of the deceased person.

The service is not typically convened in a church or funeral home, but rather an outdoor garden, rented venue or even a close family member's home. It is assembled soon after the person died or weeks or months later when the timing is more convenient for out-of-town guests.

There are no set guidelines or rules to follow when planning a celebration of life service, although it typically is what you and your family are most comfortable with presenting. A religious officiant can preside over the service, which typically lasts for about an hour to 90 minutes, or host it yourself.

Many people are now choosing celebrations of life over traditional funerals. Similar to a funeral or visitation, a memorial service gives family and friends a time to come together to honour memories and celebrate life.
