What Flowers Do You Get For A Funeral?  

It is during times like these when the knowledge of flowers and symbolic meanings behind them come in handy. Emotional occasions such as funerals and wakes in the Philippines require a certain finesse when it comes to crafting flower arrangements, so it is important to know your flowers first before shopping for ones that can perfectly convey your feelings of respect for a loss. Some sympathy flowers to opt for would be those like:-

  • White Lilies - You can never go wrong with bringing a gorgeous bouquet of white lilies to a funeral. This is the most common type of flowers during the time of grieving, as white lilies symbolize the purity of a soul once it has left this world. Innocence and simplistic elegance is reflected onto every stalk of a white lily; so if you’re looking for something minimal and yet strong in meaning, you’ve just found it.
  • Roses - Although roses are most commonly associated with romance and relationships, pastel colored roses can be the perfect addition to your funeral bouquet. Roses remain to be the foolproof flower to send out to a loved one, and funerals are certainly no different. If the occasion requires, you can opt for darker roses to convey your emotions of sorrow and grief.
  • Chrysanthemums - Perhaps another symbolic flower for funeral arrangements, the chrysanthemum comes as the perfect way to leave something simple and sweet when offering condolences. In many parts around the world, the chrysanthemum is widely known for giving out the message of grief -so keep this flower in mind if you ever have to attend a funeral service.

Keep in mind that even though funerals are a time to grieve and mourn over the loss of a loved one, it can also be a time for many to celebrate the life of the dearly departed. If he or she was joyous in their life, it would make sense for some people to prefer sending brightly colored flowers! Depending on every personal preference, the dedicated team at Flower Chimp will be delighted to aid you in this process of sending funeral and condolence flowers to ease your burden -whether or not it’s to sensitively remember a life or to celebrate one respectfully.
