Considerations when choosing your wake venue:

  • Venue capacity
  • Parking facilities
  • Ground level venues to provide access for elderly guests
  • Wheelchair access
  • Can you provide your own alcohol
  • Travel distance from the funeral venue
  • How to estimate potential guest numbers

It can be tricky picking a wake venue when you have no idea on the number of people expected to attend. From our experience we suggest that you start with a list of people you expect to attend the funeral venue, then half it. This is only a guide, as every wake brings different circumstances.

Solutions for large groups

If you’re expecting a large number of guests, finding a suitable wake or funeral venue for 300+ in your chosen location can be tricky. Consider a family friendly local council park with a marquee. Ultimo will happily be able to arrange a marquee and the council land booking too.

I have to commend Ultimo on their great food and service. I specifically requested the afternoon to not be a sad time but more of a celebration, and that really filtered through on the day. From the staff’s friendly attitude to the venues they were able to recommend; all located 5 minutes from the cemetery, the wake couldn’t have run more smoothly. Thanks again
