FUNERAL FLOWERS BUYING GUIDE
Choosing flowers for a funeral can be tricky and many people become anxious at the thought of getting it wrong. The following is our guide to commonly chosen floral tributes:
These elegant arrangements, also known as coffin tributes, can be single or double ended and are traditionally placed on top of the casket. For this reason, sprays are normally chosen by a spouse or immediate family member.
Traditionally round in shape, funeral wreaths can be placed on top of the casket but can also be sent by friends, family and acquaintances to be placed on display at the church or crematorium.
Sheaves are a naturally beautiful and more affordable alternative to a spray and can be placed either on the casket or at the altar during the service.
These simple but pretty arrangements can be used as simple tributes at the altar during a service or can be sent by friends and family.
For a religious ceremony, the family or spouse of the loved one may choose an arrangement in the shape of a cross to underline the deceased’s faith.
In some cases, a spouse or family member may choose to design a bespoke tribute to honour their loved one; for example, a photographic tribute or a lasting memorial.
