Buy Funeral Flowers Online: Advice On Choosing The Perfect Flowers

By Clinton Porter

Choosing the right flowers can be difficult at the best of times but when selecting funeral flower arrangements it is made more difficult. Particularly if this is the first time you are buying funeral flowers or even if this is the first time you will order flowers online when you are still trying to come to terms with your loss. It can be both momentous and trivial at the same time when deciding how to best reflect your feelings towards your loved one. We hope this simple guide can help make choosing sympathy flowers an easier process.

Consider the Sentiment:

Sending the right message is perhaps the most important consideration when choosing a funeral arrangement. Funeral flowers honor the departed, comfort the bereaved, and express your personal feelings of loss. Think about the interests and hobbies of the person who has passed away and how you will always remember them. You can pay tribute to the patriotic with a strong display of red, white, and blue, or let the bereaved know that their loved one was a ray of sunshine in your life with an arrangement of yellow blooms. Religious sentiments can be expressed in a number of ways, from the form of the arrangement to the message on your card, but should only be sent if you have knowledge of the family's religious affiliation. Casket sprays are only appropriate when requested by the person responsible for the funeral arrangements. Be honest with your selection -- don't go overboard just because you can. Unless you are sending as a group, large arrangements should only be selected if you are a close friend or family member. If you are true to your feelings and consider the wishes of the departed and the bereaved, your arrangement will always express your sentiments appropriately.

Consider the Setting:

Wakes, visitations, and funerals happen in a number of different locations. If you intend to send flowers to a service, consider the size and style that would work best for the setting. Large, elaborate displays like funeral wreaths and funeral sprays are ideal for funeral homes, churches, and outside services, but might look out of place at the home of the bereaved. For arrangements delivered to a residence, flowers in a vase or basket are an excellent choice. Be aware that some vase arrangements might be quite large and therefore better suited for churches and funeral homes.

Consider the Source:

Generally, flowers delivered by a local florist are the best choice for funeral arrangements, because they can be delivered same day and arrive ready for immediate display. Local florists often work with funeral homes in the area to ensure arrangements arrive on time according to the location's specifications, and are usually on familiar terms with their policies. However, if you are sending your flowers to the home of the family, flowers delivered fresh from the grower are also a suitable choice, particularly because arranging these flowers can be a soothing activity. Grower fresh flowers are also generally lower in price and will tend to last longer than arrangements from a florist if given the proper care.
