What You Need To Know About Hosting A Wake Funeral

The tradition of the wake dates back to having relatives and friends remain awake with the body before being transported to a church. The churches would take over the burial process allowing loved ones to grieve and honor the person who has passed away. There are a number of factors to take into consideration when planning a funeral wake.

When a family member dies, it can be an extremely difficult and emotional time for close friends and relatives. If you are planning on hosting a formal ceremony, notice has to be provided concerning the death in newspapers and public sources. All members should be notified of date, time, and location for the visitation to make the necessary arrangements.

The proceedings often take place at a funeral home. One should prepare sufficiently by notifying the facility of the ceremony and have the body prepared for viewing purposes. This will include the placement of flowers and related decorations in the room that the visitation is going to be held in.

Individuals often prefer to place a picture of the deceased near the entrance or the casket. It serves to honor memory and appearance as it reflects the positive moments of life. One needs to be present to greet the guests as they arrive who will be allowed to share their condolences and empathy.

A parlor will often include a guestbook to sign and leave messages of support. The catering will need to be taken into consideration including the provision of snacks and drinks for the visitation. Not all facilities include food for guests and therefore it should be discussed with the business.

Hosting a funeral wake requires a fair amount of planning with a focus on honoring the memory of the deceased. It can involve sessions of grief or a time to celebrate their life. Parlors can assist in providing for such an event and in making the best possible decisions.
