Funeral Floral Etiquette

Funeral Floral EtiquetteSending a floral tribute when a friend or relative has passed away is a considerate and thoughtful gesture of sympathy. When choosing a tribute for the family of the bereaved, it can be helpful to take a short time to consider the personality of the person who has passed on. This can help you to select a tribute which will include their favourite flower or a style that reflects an aspect of their personality. This type of arrangement can be a fine way to capture the essence of the deceased’s life and is a very thoughtful way of remembering them.

There are many different types of funeral tributes available, such as wreaths, crosses, coffin sprays, funeral sprays and sympathy bouquets. Wreaths are the most popular floral tribute as they symbolise the cycle of life. Lilac, white and pastel shades are the colours most traditionally associated with funerals, although there might be times when a deceased’s family may request a colour theme to reflect the individual taste of their departed loved-one. Funeral wreaths usually consist of a single colour such as yellow or white, although sometimes mixed-coloured wreaths are sent when the deceased is not well known to the sender.

Funeral Floral EtiquetteDifferent cultures have different traditions and customs at funerals. If you are not too sure about a family’s religious etiquette, then sending a general mixed array of fresh flowers may be the best option. Knowledgeable Florists are the best source of advice for choosing floral arrangements to suit all types of funerals.
