funeral flowers arrangements, live plants, and cards showing that a charitable donation was made in honour of the deceased. After someone passes away, whether it’s a friend, family member, or the loved one of a friend or family member, you may still want to send funeral flowers, even if you make a donation in the person's memory. Knowing what type of floral funeral arrangement to send depends on a number of factors, including your relationship to the deceased or family. Although there are no hard and fast rules about sending funeral flowers in Essex anymore, there are some guidelines that can help you decide what to do.
Regarding FaithYou will also want to take the faith and culture of the deceased into consideration before sending flowers funeral. What may be appropriate for one culture may be inappropriate for another. If you aren’t sure, ask the closest family member you know.
Common practices according to faith:
Catholic – Most flowers and arrangements are acceptable.
Protestant Christian – Most flowers and arrangements are welcome at both the memorial service and the funeral.
Mormon – Most flowers are appropriate. However, avoid arrangements on a crucifix or cross.
Eastern or Greek Orthodox – Most flowers are accepted, and white flowers are favoured.
Jewish – Although you may send flowers to the family members’ homes, flowers at the funeral home are not typically displayed. Some of the more contemporary Jewish funerals allow flowers at the entrance of the synagogue. If you are in doubt, you should probably refrain from sending flowers and opt for a fruit basket sent to the home of the family instead.
Baha’i – Most flowers and arrangements are appropriate.
Buddhist – Most flowers and arrangements are appropriate.
Hindu – Although floral arrangements are acceptable, garlands are more common at a Hindu funeral.
Muslim – The appropriateness of flowers varies in the Islamic religion, so ask family members before sending them. Many people of this religion prefer that you send money to a charity in lieu of flowers. If you choose to order flowers for an Islamic funeral, keep the arrangement simple and elegant.
Members of the Immediate FamilyHusbands, wives, children, sisters, brothers, parents, and grandparents may order any type of floral arrangement they like. However, there are certain types that are reserved for immediate family members. Keep in mind that funeral flowers from family are typically placed closest to the coffin during the viewing or wake. In some cases, they may be inside the coffin with the deceased.
A coffin or casket spray is generally from the immediate family. Other arrangements from the spouse, children, or parents may also include spray arrangements, funeral flower letters, pillows and cushions, and heart shaped arrangements.
Extended Family Members
Other members of the family such as aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and even close friends also have a wide range of options. The traditional spray is often chosen along with funeral flower letters for the most impact. Sometimes, informal arrangements are good options because they can go home with the immediate family or taken to the cemetery.
Close Friends and Business Associates
Close friends and business associates of the family of the deceased may want to send flowers funeral to show that they are thinking of them during their time of grief. Some of the best floral arrangement for friends to send to a funeral include sprays, wreaths, basket arrangements, sheafs. Friends have the option of sending the flowers directly to the funeral home, Essex crematorium or to the home of the family member.
