Few Advices For Planning A Memorial Wake

The traditional hosting of wakes involved relatives and close friends having remained with the body until it has to be transported to the relevant church. Once it was removed, the body would be prepared for the burial or the cremation. Today, a number of factors need to be considered for those who are interested in hosting a funeral wake.

Should a close friend or family member pass away, it places a great deal of emotional and financial strain on relatives. To host a memorial ceremony, those who shared in the life of the deceased should be notified including an obituary. Contacting the relevant guests should include the date, time, and the place for the service.

The funeral home is often responsible for the hosting of such a ceremony. The facility should be notified of the number of guests that will attend and the preparation required for the body. Flowers and similar decorations can be placed in the room for an honorable service.

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.

Guestbooks may be included by the parlor as an opportunity for guests to write personalized messages to the family. Food and drink should be provided for the guests who attend the proceeding. Not all parlors will include catering costs in a quotation and should be made provision for.

A funeral wake is a traditional procedure that is held to remember and honor the person who has passed on. It can focus on the celebration of life or a mourning process in which guests are able to offer their condolences and share fond memories. Careful planning and consultation with a parlor can aid in making the most suitable decisions.
