Pre-planning for your own funeral may seem like an unpleasant task, but it allows you to make all your wishes known and saves your loved ones the task of arranging funeral plans. Choosing a casket is one funeral pre-planning decision you can make ahead of time. If you are ready to choose a casket, let the funeral directors at West Cobb Funeral Home & Crematory in Marietta, GA, guide you through the process.

There are a lot of options when it comes to choosing a casket, and their experts say that making your decision based on the following four choices will ensure you find the right fit:

  • casketCremation or Burial: When choosing a casket, decide if you are going to be cremated or buried. Once you make that decision, you can pick a casket that is specific to your wishes. Cremation caskets are generally less expensive and ornate because they go through the crematorium. When it comes to burial caskets, you have many more options in terms of style, selection, and customization.
  • Material: Caskets come in wood and metal options. Each one is crafted with care, from the high-quality staining process on wood to the precise seam welding and rust protection on metal. Wood is a great option if you prefer a classic look. A metal option offers durability, quality finishes, and is a great option if you are looking for a range of color choices.
  • Customization: There are many custom finishes and options available with caskets, from the exterior and interior colors to personalized finishes. These finishes will adorn your casket with meaningful symbols, words, and reminders of your interests. They include drawers for keepsakes you wish to be buried with or where family members can leave letters and cards. You can choose personalized medallions to reflect affiliations, hobbies, or meaningful dates and events in your life. Customized options ensure your casket is one-of-a-kind and a true reflection of the life you have lived.
  • Price: Caskets have a wide range of pricing options. It is important to determine your budget and work within it to find a casket of your choosing without feeling like you have spent too much money. Luckily, there are many beautiful choices in all types of finishes, making it easy to find one that is budget-friendly and fits all your needs.
