When someone you know has passed away, you may want to let the family know that you're thinking of them and their loved one. Funeral flowers serve as a reminder of the spirit of life and are the perfect gesture for this purpose.

Choosing the right floral tribute can depend on a number of factors. Here's a helpful guide from Elliza Wade Florists on making your selection for funeral flowers:

  • Always consult with the family before you order any flowers. In some cases there are requests for no flowers other than the family flowers, with donations to charity requested instead. It's advisable to check with the family before you order anything.
  • Casket Sprays or Funeral Crosses are usually selected by close family members or by those undertaking the preliminary funeral arrangements. If this doesn't apply to you, then a posy or bouquet is a better choice.
  • Sometimes the deceased may have had a favourite colour or there may be a colour theme or specific flower type for the funeral. Be sure to check with the family if this applies.
  • When you place your order you'll need to give Elliza Wade information about the deceased, the bereaved and the service day, time and location. Remember to plan your message that you'd like the floral card to say, which will be attached to the arrangement.
If you need help with choosing the right floral arrangement, then give Jan at Elliza Wade a call - she's be more than happy to help.
