Following Proper Funeral Etiquette

Funerals give surviving family and friends a chance to say goodbye to someone that they have lost, so observing the etiquette for these occasions is important. If you have been invited to attend a funeral service, then watch this video to learn about proper funeral etiquette.

First, make an appearance at the visitation or wake that is held before the burial, and plan to stay for about 15 minutes. Then, attend the funeral service and offer your condolences to the family before mingling with other attendees. Following the burial, attend any meals or gatherings that have been planned.
