New York, NY (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Baby boomers are driving new trends in the funeral industry, CNBC reports. According to the article published this week, baby boomers are known to express their individuality and personal tastes in all areas of their lives, and are bringing that attitude to their own funeral planning as well. Funeral Financials comments on the top two trends that boomers are creating in the death industry.
Distinctive caskets and urns are a new, growing trend in the funeral industry. Funeral Financials notes that the sky's the limit when it comes to custom caskets and urns. Baby boomers, in increasing numbers, are choosing idiosyncratic coffin designs for themselves. Caskets can be painted with flames to match the details of the deceased's beloved motorcycle, for example. Some caskets look like classic automobiles. One baby boomer, as a child of the 60s, chose to customize the interior of his casket with a tie-dye design.
Baby boomers who want to be sure their memorial service suits their individual preferences are causing an increase in pre-need sales in the funeral industry. Pre-need sales result when, during the planning process, people choose and pre-pay for their coffin, urn, burial plot, funeral service amenities, or other burial expenses. FuneralFinancials.com recommends planning for one's funeral in advance as a proactive way to save money and to ensure the deceased's wishes are honored to the fullest extent.
Funeral Financials knows that planning for a funeral can be a challenging task, but it’s one that people of all ages are well-advised to do. Baby boomers, with their cultural drive to proclaim their individuality in life and death, are showing that planning for funerals in advance can result in a humorous, celebratory service that can be paid for ahead of time and tailored to an individual’s unique financial situation.
Baby boomers are driving new trends in the death industry due to their desire for unique, individual funeral services. Funeral Financials comments on these trends and applauds baby boomers for taking control of their funeral service planning in advance.
