How to Plan a Wake

In the context of funeral services , the wake is a time for family and friends to come together and have private time with the deceased before the ceremony. Arrangements for the wake should respect the deceased’s wishes and offer comfort to loved ones.

In this video, you will learn some wake planning tips and ideas. For starters, the wake doesn’t have to take place at the funeral home. You can invite loved ones to the family’s home or somewhere else that bears significance to the deceased. Public locations that represent a lifetime of dedication are excellent choices.
