Funeral Flowers

Sending flowers to loved ones is the most common and popular way of showing love, care, respect, and sympathy. And that is why people prefer sending flowers to funerals and grieving families to show their love, support, and sympathy. However, choosing the right condolences flower is critical because flowers have their own language and every flower has its own meaning. So, always check meaning before sending condolences flower to the grieving family.

Do you know nothing about flower meaning?? Here is a brief guide to help you choose the right meaning flower for condolences flower or flower arrangements at a funeral.

1.  Lillies

When you think of flowers for condolences or for funeral flower arrangements, lilies would be the first thing that will cross your mind. Lilies are widely used across the world to show that the deceased is at peaceful rest.

2.  Carnations

Carnations are another popular choice for condolences flowers. They come in a range of different colours and every colour has its own meaning. However, white, pink, and red carnations are appropriate choices for funeral flower arrangements. White carnation shows pure love, pink carnation is a symbol of remembrance, and red carnation shows admiration and affection.

3.   Chrysanthemums

Another flower commonly found at funeral flower arrangements. Chrysanthemums are a symbol of grief and rebirth in Asia and truth and mortality in America. However, they are widely used in funerals in both cultures.

4.   Gladioli

The tall and majestic flower is another choice that is perfect as condolences flowers. They represent character and strength and if you want to show the character of the deceased, Gladioli is a good choice to include in funeral flower arrangements.

5.   Roses

Roses are a symbol of love and red roses are widely used on Valentine’s Day for expressing love. But you can also use them as funeral flowers to express your love for the deceased. Different colour roses have different meanings so choose accordingly. Yellow rose is a symbol of friendship, white roses symbolize innocence, deep crimson rose depicts grief, and a single red rose shows your never-ending love.

6.  Orchids

Orchids are frequently found in funeral flower arrangements. Orchids come in many colours but only white and pink orchids are considered appropriate for funerals. White orchids symbolize purity, humility, and reverence. While pink orchids represent grace, innocence, and loveliness.

7.   Tulips

Tulips are also commonly used across the world in funerals. They are also considered sympathy flowers. White tulips depict heaven and eternity, pink tulips show love and affection, cream white and red tulips symbolize forever love, and maroon-black tulips are popular for military funerals as they depict strength and power.

8.   Hyacinths

Hyacinths are a very fragrant spring flower and it means deep sorrow. A combination of purple and white hyacinths is a popular funeral flower arrangement. Blue hyacinths are used at military funerals they depict true friendship. Yellow, pink, and red Hyacinths are not appropriate for funeral flower arrangements because of their playful meaning.
