Selecting Funeral Flowers at Premier Funerals Sunshine Coast

Posted by Premier Funerals

Flowers play a significant role in funerals, serving as a symbol of life, beauty, and expression of sympathy. Choosing the right funeral flowers can be a comforting activity during grief, as they reflect the personality and preferences of the deceased. At Premier Funerals Sunshine Coast, we guide families through the process of selecting appropriate funeral flowers, ensuring they add beauty and sentiment to the service.

Types of Funeral Flowers

  • Wreaths: Symbolising eternal life, wreaths are one of the most traditional and popular choices for funerals.
  • Casket Sprays: These are large arrangements placed directly on the casket, usually selected by the immediate family.
  • Standing Sprays: Displayed on an easel, these arrangements provide a visual tribute at the service.
  • Bouquets and Baskets: These can be sent to the family’s home or the funeral service as a sympathy gesture.

Choosing the Right Flowers

Consider the favourite flowers or colours of the deceased when selecting funeral flowers. This personal touch can make the arrangements more meaningful. Additionally, different flowers often carry symbolic meanings:

  • Lilies: Represent the restored innocence of the soul of the deceased.
  • Roses: Different colours signify love (red), reverence (white), and friendship (yellow).
  • Orchids: Denote eternal love, making them a poignant choice for someone significantly close.

Cultural Considerations

Be mindful of cultural sensitivities and traditions. Some cultures prefer certain colours or types of flowers at funerals, which can influence your choice.

Eco-Friendly Options

For those concerned about environmental impact, consider sustainable choices like locally sourced flowers or live plants that can later be planted in memory of the deceased.
