Most of us will have to attend a funeral at some point in our lives. And it can be a stressful and difficult time. But memorial flowers or plants are a fitting tribute to the person who has passed away, and are a thoughtful and traditional way of paying final respects to someone who has had an impact on your life.
If you’re sending funeral flowers, the first step is to know where they are to go, since they can be sent to the cemetery or funeral home. Equally, it would be a nice gesture to have flowers delivered to the family after the funeral, to let them know you are still thinking of them. You could also send sympathy flowers to the bereaved if you are not able to make the funeral. It’s probably better to send smaller arrangements if you are sending to a private house.
Bear in mind that, usually, the casket sprays are only given by relatives and close friends. So don’t order these without checking with the family first. Also an individual church may have certain limitations on flowers, so, again, check first.
If you’re wondering what flowers to send to a funeral, think about the deceased’s favourite blooms, and ask if you are not sure what these were. Or think about the personality of the person who has passed away. White may be a traditional choice, but perhaps the person whose life you are celebrating was particularly vibrant and would appreciate bright colours?
If you want flowers delivered for a funeral, it’s now easier than ever to do so online, and this can be done very quickly, giving you one less thing to worry about. It’s also comforting to know that, despite the sadness, you can do something positive.
