Things to Consider Before Purchasing:

  • Has the family of the deceased requested a color scheme?
  • Do you know if the deceased had a favorite flower?
  • How large of a funeral are you attending?
  • Are close to the deceased through friendship or business?

Funeral Color Scheme

On the rare occasion the family of the deceased may request that attendees meet a color scheme. Don't be alarmed by this if you're not sure. If the funeral is to have a color scheme then you would already be aware of it. Someone in the family would be sure to notify friends of the family if it was important enough to them. It's very rare to witness such a request, but they do exist and are more prominent in certain geographical areas.

Favorite Flower of the Deceased

Funeral Size Flowers

If the family is having many people at the funeral then imagine them needing to take all of those standing sprays home with them, or even trying to give them to other people due to lack of space. If you're anticipating a gathering of 50 or more people than a small but pretty sympathy bouquet will suffice.

Friendship of Business

This is the only exception to our rule about not over-spending on funeral flowers. If you're a good friend of the family or relative then you need not worry about this. If however you are a business partner or the family itself has business dealings with you, a bit more or a robust offering should be given. If someone is investing a sizable sum of money with you then they will expect to see a bit of that sum spent on them in consideration to your business relationship. This doesn't mean that you pick the most expensive standing spray. Opt for something robust or in a medium spray size, and remember, carnations are great "filler flowers" to bulk up funeral bouquets for delivery without also become filler for the price.
