Planning a funeral in Dallas
When planning a funeral in Dallas, there are dozens of funeral homes to choose from, so there’s a great chance that you can find one that feels right for your family’s preferences and budget. When evaluating your options, consider things like location (especially if you want to host a viewing or funeral service at the funeral homes), your connection with the staff, online reviews, prices and more.
In Texas, burial is still more popular that cremation, although cremation rates are rising quickly and have surpassed burial on a national level. Consider which option feels right to you. Burial is more traditional and some people prefer the notion of leaving their loved one’s body whole. Cremation, on the other hand, is more environmentally friendly and is generally much more affordable.
There are many beautiful Dallas cemeteries to choose from, if you’d like a traditional burial or to bury your loved one’s ashes. It’s often a good idea to visit a few to get a sense of which spot you’re most likely to go back and visit.
During the summer, some people planning a funeral in Dallas may want to forgo a graveside service, due to the heat. You can choose to do an indoor funeral service, graveside service, or both. The most important thing is that it feels meaningful to your family.
