How To Organise a Wake in Oakey QLD

While the process of organising a wake might seem daunting to some, it can be a relatively easy and straightforward process with a bit of organisation and planning. This guide will provide you with all the information you need to hold a wake in Oakey QLD, from choosing the right venue to catering for your guests.

So if you have lost someone close to you and are looking for ways to say goodbye, read on for everything you need to know about organising a wake.​


Notify the deceased’s family and friends


We all know that death is a difficult event to process, but it doesn’t have​ ​to be inconvenient. There are many different ways you can choose for your wake or funeral service announcement such as local newspaper ads in Oakey RSL.

You should also remember that a wake is a time to remember the person in a more palatable way. People might choose not to go if they were too sad at their own funeral, but some guests will come just for this reason and also get an opportunity see friends again who didn’t attend before hand or have any knowledge about what happened during the persons life events.

Private wakes might also suit some people’s needs so if this sounds good and private enough then just send out invites at whatever time works best for those close enough without putting too much pressure onto them.


Choosing the time and place for the wake


You are free to decide the time and location of your wake. If you would like it postponed or held at a later stage, this is no problem! But make sure that everyone who would like attend knows about any changes beforehand so there aren’t any surprises on race day morning when they turn up without warning.

The wake is a time for friends and family to come together. It’s important that everyone knows what they need before the service, so it doesn’t disrupt any plans of yours or anyone else’s who may want attend but were unaware there was going be an event happening soon (and please do let us know if there are more details needed).

If you want to decorate the venue with flowers or photographs or set up entertainment, just tell us in advance. We are always here to ensure the funeral wake program runs smoothly.


Adding Entertainment to the Funeral Wake Program


Wakes are traditionally seen as very formal occasions. However, it is becoming increasingly common for people to celebrate their loved ones life at the wake with music and picture slideshows that display what they enjoyed during retirement years- this includes anything from watching football on TV or listening rock n roll after dinner hours.

If you’re planning an upcoming event , consider whether there will be entertainment put up depending how much sense your deceased liked things along these lines.

We’re happy to help. Share with us your thoughts.

There are many different options for funeral wake foods in Oakey QLD, and it is important to choose something that will reflect the personality of the person who died.
