A Guide To Funeral Flowers

Funerals can be difficult times for everyone. Losing a loved one is heartbreaking and planning a funeral while grieving can be especially hard. 

Something you want to ensure when planning a funeral is that it reflects the beauty your loved one had in life. Choosing flowers for a funeral can be a big decision as there are so many options available, but it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it seems. 

There are many options for floral arrangements, such as sprays, sheaves and wreaths. You can also have words created out of flowers in memory of your lost one. These are often placed atop the coffin or alongside it as decorative pieces and can be as simple or as extravagant as you wish.

A tribute arrangement is a lovely way to remember those who have passed and can often be crafted to specific styles. These can commemorate hobbies, passions, their relation to you or just simply spell out their name. 

Some of the most commonly used flowers at funerals are lilies, roses and chrysanthemums. 

Lilies are beautiful flowers and most commonly used are white lilies. These represent innocence and purity and are a lovely way to commemorate a loved one who was lost.  

Roses are another beautiful choice and come in an array of colours, each with their own meaning. Having an arrangement of roses in different colours is a lovely way to express all the many ways a loved one was important to people. 

Choosing flowers in the deceased’s favourite colours and incorporating their favourite blooms can add a personal touch to funeral floral arrangements and can create a bespoke and personal send-off that commemorates them in a beautiful and distinctive way.
