Choosing Funerary Urns: The Process

The first step toward choosing the right funerary urn is to go through a process where you consider exactly what you're looking for in an urn. Depending on your loved one's wishes, you may have specific instructions that you can work from. If not, here are the things that you need to keep in mind during the initial process of choosing funerary urns for ashes:
  • Budget: Before you begin choosing funerary urns, be sure that you have a clear understanding of what you have to spend, and then choose an urn that fits within those guidelines comfortably. No matter what your budget or your specific needs, you can always find beautiful funerary urns at
  • Personality: This can be one of the easier parts of choosing funerary urns. When looking for the right funerary urn for someone you love, consider what he or she loved most. Look for urns that match this person's favorite color, interests, or personality. Like a gift, you'll know when it's right for someone you love.
  • Use: Where will the urn be kept? Will it be buried or displayed? Does your loved one wish to have their remains scattered? Choosing an urn for ashes depending on use is one of the easiest ways to narrow down your selection. Urns for display are usually much more ornate and can feature decorative detailing that makes for a moving tribute. Burial urns could be specially designed and are usually sturdier and simpler. For scattering, there are many scattering urns or biodegradable funerary urns that could meet those needs beautifully and respectfully.
