About Funeral Flowers
As a rule of thumb, funeral flowers go to the funeral home, while condolence flowers can go anywhere. Funeral flowers are typically larger and more formal arrangements generally arranged by immediate family members with the intention of honoring the deceased and celebrating their lives. These are also designed specifically and built to be large enough around the casket so that they can be seen from any point of the funeral or memorial service, no matter where a person may be sitting or standing. As well as offering a final farewell to the deceased, funeral flowers will show how much the person meant to you, their personality and appreciation of their distinguished contributions to life.
Funeral flowers may vary according to religion, customs, and personal preference. The deceased’s religious beliefs, traditions, likes and dislikes are usually taken into consideration and incorporated into the arrangements.
Here are some of the most common Funeral Flowers to send as a tribute to the deceased:

Floral wreaths are a great way to celebrate the life of your loved one at their service.
