How to Plan a Funeral Wake

When the funeral service is over, when the solemn words have been spoken, tears shed and songs sung, it’s time for the wake or funeral reception. Traditionally the wake involved the deceased’s loved ones staying with them until they were taken to the service. But in modern times, a wake is the post-funeral gathering of family and friends to support and comfort each other. It’s a vitally important part of the funeral day, so organising a wake is a huge responsibility, which comes at a time when you are suffering greatly from bereavement yourself. This article attempts to make your task easier, by covering some important considerations, with advice on aspects that will help make the event memorable and fitting, such as venues and catering. Your first consideration is how much the funeral wake should reflect the personality, beliefs and lifestyle of your deceased loved one. It is a phenomenon of modern times that everything in our lives should reflect who we are and how others should view us, and recently this has come to include funerals and funeral wakes. Many people want their funeral wake to be minutely planned and personalised. Choose a venue that creates the right atmosphere and it is possible to create a moving, memorable and fitting day of celebration and remembrance that represents the deceased’s wishes. It doesn’t have to be an unhappy gathering of sombre mourning, though, of course, if that is what the deceased would have wanted, it can be. The funeral wake venue is probably your most important consideration. It is no longer necessary to host a wake at a relative’s home, especially if large numbers are expected to attend. There are hundreds of venues that can accommodate funeral wakes of all sizes, and able to create the most fitting environment for friends and family to relax in, while they feel a connection with their departed loved one. When it comes to the funeral wake venue, the options are almost endless, make your task easier by first searching online to make your shortlist, you’ll soon find the perfect wake venue.
