Prepare

Whether you are planning a virtual funeral service for a loved one or attending one yourself, it’s always a good idea to properly prepare ahead of time. What we mean by this is that you should be more than ready for everything that comes along with a virtual service. For example, if you are planning a virtual service, then you’ll definitely want to spend time ahead of time planning who will be speaking during moments within the service. To make this process a little easier, we recommend that you reach out to those who will be in attendance to ask who’d like to say a few words. Once you’ve come up with a concrete list of speakers, then it will then be up to you to designate each person a certain amount of time so that the service runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Additionally, if there will be guest speakers or officiants speaking at the service, it’s always a good idea to have a general idea of a set schedule so that everyone knows when they should be present. Also, if you’d like to have songs sung during your virtual service, then this will all need to be thoroughly planned out ahead of time to avoid any hiccups or confusion. If you are struggling with planning this virtual service yourself, there are many funeral homes around that have a designated team to help with planning virtual services.

Dressing

While you may not think that a virtual service would require a dress code, this is not true. Whether you are in person or online, ensuring that guests are dressed appropriately is a huge factor in holding a successful and memorable funeral service. We recommend sticking with tradition and having guests wear neutral or black clothing that is formal in style. To make sure that you and all of the guests are on the same page, we recommend that you send out a letter, email, or message to everyone informing them about how they should present themselves during the service.

Mute

When attending a virtual service, one of the first things that you’ll want to be sure of prior to the start of the service is that your microphone is muted. If you keep it on, you run the risk of noisy feedback playing throughout the service which could be distracting and viewed as a sign of great disrespect.
