Funeral flowers are a traditional way to pay tribute to the deceased; however some people hesitate to send flowers to a funeral because they are unsure of the proper etiquette.
Here are some things to consider when choosing flowers for a loved one.
• Flowers for the coffin/ casket are chosen by the immediate family.
• Graveside Roses tribute – some members of the immediate family may wish to place a single rose in to the grave with the coffin as a final tribute before leaving the cemetery.
• Other relatives and close friends have a wide range of options and may choose from wreaths, hearts, cushions or custom tributes to honour the personality of the deceased.
- Friends and colleagues may choose a small spray arrangement.
