This is my first wake also, I'm going with my friend and her mom. Would it be weird if all three of us went up to the casket to pray at the same time? Thank you (I know this isn't normally a topic you'd see on here but I needed to ask this simply because I've been nervous all day that three people going up is bad or weird, instead of two).

It isn't bad or weird. Wake's can make people feel awkward and anxious. Just keep in mind that everyone is grieving. I will typically pay my respects alone unless someone asks me to go with them. Just do whatever feels comfortable for you at the time.1
