As much as flowers are a part of weddings, they are also a part of funerals. However, the context they are being used in is different. Therefore the kind of flowers you would use too varies in these two situations. So its essential that you are able to comprehend this fact and choose the right flowers for both situations without messing the two up. Here are some mistakes you need to be wary of when it comes to selecting flowers or in this case wreaths, for funerals.
Address them right
When you are gifting or sending funeral flowers to a funeral parlor or the deceased’s home, make sure that you address them right. The flowers should not only be addressed to the deceased but also to his or her family. After all, it is a remembrance of their (the deceased) life. And so it is only right that the family too is addressed in this. So do it right!
Make it personal
Rather than picking out something that catches your eye first or something that the florist Claremont suggests, think of gifting a bouquet or wreath that is much more personal. Look back at the times you might have spent together and if there has been a particular flower of significance or if it is the deceased’s favorite, and use that as a base to put together something that would have more value and meaning even if it is store bought! Then again, its not like you can walk in a meadow and pick a fresh bunch of flowers when you are living smack in the middle of the city!
Add a card
Something that adds even more value to a wreath or a bouquet of flowers is a card that is personal. You don’t have to have the best handmade card or put in the biggest effort, but if you simply write something that is genuine with the intention of comforting whoever it is addressed to, then it would make a whole world of difference. So don’t be lazy and copy something off ‘Google’, instead take time, sit down and truly think about what you are writing and what you should be writing in this!
Pick the right flowers
If you are randomly picking out flowers that have no relation to any favorites of the deceased, you should know that different flowers have different meanings. So when you are picking out these, think twice!
Keep it personal in every way and avoid the above mistakes to gift the best wreaths or flowers to the deceased and his or her family!
