Discovering The Facts Of Hosting A Funeral Wake

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.

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 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.

The parlor may provide a guestbook to sign as individuals enter the facility. Do not forget to consider the catering including light snacks and drinks for those who have made the time to attend the visitation. The facility may not provide the foodstuffs and therefore alternative arrangements will have to be made.

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.
