While some people seem to deal with any type of social gathering with ease, others are unsure of what they should and should not do. For those who have recently lost a loved one and will be attending a Funeral in Deltona FL for the first time in their adult lives, there may be some question of how to dress, what to say, and how to act. Here are some tips that will make it easier to know what to do.
Choosing Appropriate Attire
In the past, there was a rather rigid dress code for attending any Funeral in Deltona FL. Dark clothing, preferably black, was considered the right choice. For many people, this type of clothing is still considered to be one way of showing respect for the departed and for the close relatives and friends who are mourning.
The key is to wear something that is considered acceptable in most social situations. Unless specific instructions are provided to the contrary, opting for standard business attire is a safe choice. That means a coat and tie for men and a dress that is at least knee length for women. Even if there is a variety of attire worn by those in attendance, the business attire will fit in with ease.
What should be said to spouses, children, and other close relatives of the deceased? Some people think they must come up with something profound to include in their condolences. Rest assured that no one is expecting those in attendance to provide pearls of wisdom to make everything better. Keep the remarks simple and to the point. Something as simple as expressing sorrow for the loss and saying one nice thing about the deceased is sufficient.
During the Service
Before the service begins, silence the phone. That means turning off the ringer and making sure that text messages do not result in a little ditty playing to announce their arrival. Turning the phone off until the service is over is the most effective solution. In terms of what to do, follow the lead of the individual conducting the service. Kneel when prompted, stand when appropriate, and don’t talk during the eulogy.
