Funeral flowers

Choosing flowers for a funeral can be a daunting experience, as you are trying to choose the best to commemorate someone dear to you. Below we explain what options are available, how you can order and from which providers, as well as how much will funeral flowers cost you.

What options are available?

As with flowers for any other occasion, there are lots of options here. First you need to decide which flowers to go for – some people choose flowers that remind them of the deceased whereas others try and understand the meaning of different flowers before making a choice.

For example, lilies are a very common choice for funeral flowers as they are associated with innocence and peace.  Roses are another popular choice, as they symbolise love. The colour of the roses you pick can have different meaning – red roses are believed to convey respect and love whereas white roses symbolise innocence and humility. Carnations are also a good choice when it comes to funeral flowers as they symbolise pure love and admiration, and just like roses, they come in a variety of colours. Orchids can also be a good option, especially if the deceased was someone really close to you – they are long-lasting, elegant and truly beautiful flowers.

Once you have chosen the flowers, you will have to decide how would you like them to be arranged. Florists nowadays can arrange flowers in any bespoke shape but when it comes to funerals, wreaths or crosses are the traditional options most people go for.

 

How to order

This works the same way as ordering flowers for any other occasion. You can walk into your local florist and order, you can call them and give instructions, or you can just order online.

Funeral flowers can usually be delivered straight to a memorial service, funeral service or the family’s home, or you can always go and pick them up then deliver them yourself to wherever they need to go.

 

Price ranges

Depending on what flower arrangement you choose, how big it is, what type of flowers it has, expect to spend between £40 and £200.

For example a small sheaf of lilies can cost £50 whereas a large garden rose wreath can cost £120.
