This check list below may assist when planning a wake.
- Inform friends and family of the passing of the loved one.
- Let the funeral home know when you wish to have the wake.
- Display a guest book for people to sign. Have someone prepared to be with the guest book and greet individuals as they arrive.
- Gather pictures of the deceased for display. Some pictures may be set in frames or in a collage.
- Others may be prepared in a multi-media program.
- Bring mementos or other items of importance to the deceased and family.
- Plan on being present during the entire time of the wake to greet guests and support the immediate family.
- Provide beverages and light snacks for the family and close friends. If the wake is held away from the funeral home and in a less formal setting alcoholic beverages are often accepted.
