Slant Memorials for Couples
Ornate & Thoughtful
When you have to build a memorial for your loved ones, slant memorials for couples are a unique choice. They bring the tradition of an upright headstone a modern twist. Slant headstones stand out in cemeteries because they are a contemporary style. Monuments for couples are unique because three stories are pictured, those of each individual and their story together.
Slant monuments come in standard sizes and granite colors but are easily personalized.
Size and Basic Information
Slant headstones for couples stand 16 to 18 inches tall. This is a medium height in many cemeteries with taller uprights and discrete flat markers. Double slant markers are 36 inches wide to allow space to honor two souls. This space is more than single slant headstones so that much more personalization can be added. The base of a slant is usually 10 inches thick, taking up less width than many upright memorials.
With it’s slanted face, slant monuments can use engraving techniques to give a more 3D look to the images that are etched. This adds another level of complexity to your monument that other headstones cannot provide.
A couple’s memorial is a loving way to honor the lives and love that your family members lead. Some choose to memorialize their love with clear images like hearts and wedding bands while others choose a favorite place. Both parts of the couple have space for their birth and death dates, and some couples choose to add individual epitaphs.
Buying a slant memorial for a couple is an important decision that requires careful consideration. By designing your monument with a memorial designer, you can ensure that you’re getting a high-quality, meaningful, and lasting monument that will honor the memory of your loved ones for many years to come.
