Can’t seem to find a venue for your next event? Have you exhausted every possible location and have come up short? Well, I have a solution for you…the local funeral home!!
Yes, I’m serious….
There is a growing trend of funeral homes marketing their space as not just a place to mourn the dead but as sites for events celebrating the living, including weddings, birthdays, holiday parties and proms. I know, this may be too morbid for some tastes, but many people are falling in love with the elegant rotundas and marble floors of today’s funeral event centers.
Champions of this shift attest that its no different than having a wedding in a church, where caskets and newly married couples are a regular occurence. A chapel here is a chapel there, correct?
Many tradional wedding and event facilities have been forced to shut their doors because of the economy, but the heart of the funeral business keeps on ticking….
