Choosing flowers for certain occasions requires careful consideration, especially when it’s a funeral of a dearly departed person. The sympathy flowers offer some level of comfort to the deceased’s family, and it’s a fond way of saying goodbye to the deceased. The video gives tips on how to choose funeral flowers.
Immediate family members usually choose the flowers that are to be laid on the casket, or for the church arrangement. Close friends or colleagues usually choose to have the flowers delivered to the home or the church.
You’ll want to make the flower arrangement or wreath personal, by choosing the types of flowers and colors that were the deceased’s favorite. However, ensure the color is somber, and white is usually the preferred color. If it’s a celebration of life, you can add vibrant colors to the arrangement.
Also, consider the size and shape of the flowers. Note that some flowers are seasonal, so you may not always get your preferred choice.
Get a trusted florist who can best advise you on what would be suitable for a funeral. The wreath or arrangement should represent the person’s personality, and it’s a great way of honoring them for their unique qualities.
