Exploring The Facts Of Hosting A Wake At A 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.

Most people place a single enlarged photograph of a deceased member in the the room as a sign of respect and honor. It should reveal the positive aspects of personality. It is important that you remain at the entrance to greet all guests who attend the ceremony.

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.

A funeral wake serves to respect on honor the memory of the deceased. The more traditional approach allows for sharing in the grief process while others wish to make it a celebratory event for the life of the person who has passed on. Finding the right parlor can ease the process and offer the most valuable options.
