The main purpose of flowers at funerals is to celebrate life but can symbolise many different emotions such as love, sympathy, eternity and immortality. They’ve always played an important part at funerals as their beautiful comforting qualities, remain one of the most graceful ways to express our support when we can’t find the words to.
You can choose from a large range including heart arrangements, wreaths, funeral letters and even custom funeral flower arrangements that have been made to order. Custom funeral flower arrangements are special flower designs that capture your loved ones personality or highlights something they were known and also loved for.
Traditional Funeral Flower Arrangements
It can be hard to know which funeral flowers to choose so here are a few pointers to consider when you’re choosing your flowers. These are commonly used arrangements:
Wreaths – Circular floral arrangements that represent eternal life.
Floral arrangements – Any type of floral arrangement, from cut flowers to basket and container arrangements.
Sprays – These flower arrangements allow viewing from one side only.
Casket sprays – These are usually organised by direct family members and sit on top of the casket.
Inside pieces – Items that are placed inside the casket (such as small floral sprays).
Tip: Always include a handwritten note. Whether the floral arrangement is formal or informal, including a handwritten note can help lift the spirit of the family members of the deceased. Kept brief and heartfelt, the words in the message will make the arrangement even more meaningful.
