While cremation services in Daytona Beach, FL start out much lower in cost than funerals, their costs can add up and go well above and beyond the amount you wanted to spend. When you are planning services for a loved one you adored, of course, you want nothing but the best for that person. Plus, you are making decisions in an emotional state and that might lead you to choose things that are more expensive than they need to be. Here are some things that can really add up and through the cremation services you are planning above the budget you had in mind.
An Expensive Urn
There are so many urns on the market that you can find any type and style you want in any material. You can also customize urns in a variety of ways. While there are inexpensive urns that work just fine, you might go above and beyond those urns to get something you feel is really special. It’s your loved one’s final resting place and it’s important. But you will want to be practical about it as well and not spend so much that you can’t afford other important things for the services.
Memorial Services To The Max
Memorial services can be whatever you want them to be. It’s nice to know that you can spend very little on a memorial and still honor your loved one with your family and friends. But there are also plenty of expensive things you can do with a memorial service that can throw your budget off. You can book an expensive venue, hire caterers, and do all sorts of things that you might not really have to have for the event.
Burial Or Resting Place Options
With cremation in play, you can do a variety of things with your loved one’s remains. Many of those things are free or very inexpensive. But if you decide you want to bury them, that can get the costs going again. When you bury a loved one, you need an urn vault, a cemetery plot, and a headstone. Each of those things can add up and perhaps ruin the budget you have crafted.
Memorials In Place
Even if you are careful with the budget through the services, you may ruin things on the other end if you decide to erect a memorial for your loved one somewhere. Again, there are so many options that it’s hard to figure out what to do. But everyone can find something they appreciate—and something that fits their budget. So be careful about choosing something that you like, but is way above what you feel comfortable spending. Your loved one can be honored by things in your budget, too.
