Creative ideas to personalise a farewell

Less formal than the funeral service itself, a wake provides a more relaxed and social atmosphere for people to remember the person who has died.

  • Cook your loved one’s favourite recipe to serve to guests.
  • Play a tribute slideshow featuring photos of important times and significant events.
  • Serve a signature drink or cocktail and ask guests to raise a glass in farewell.
  • Encourage people to share stories and memories with everyone gathered.
  • Play favourite board games or participate in much-loved hobbies.
