Funeral flowers are usually placed on top of the coffin by family and close friends. You should know how to choose the right burial flowers so that you do not bother yourself or the deceased's family.
Funeral flowers are either shaped like a diamond or a traditional cross. The size of the burial flowers depends on the size of the coffin. But today, florists are equipped to make the flowers of different lengths so you don't have to worry about it. But you should definitely find out the size of the coffin before ordering the funeral flowers.
If you are looking for sprays, choose lilies along the green foliage. This will look beautiful and peaceful. While crosses should be made of chrysanthemums and other seasonal flowers, or you can ask the florist to make a cross only with chrysanthemums and green foliage.
Many close relatives also choose designs such as circular, square or heart shaped. These patterns are usually made of chrysanthemums or roses lined with green foliage or complementary flowers. You can also ask the florist to make special tributes such as angels or the deceased's name from flowers. If you are looking for something classic, choose wreaths. Wreaths are always circular because it is symbolic of eternal life. You can ask the florist to use white Calla lily sprays in the wreath to give it a more modern look.
Remember that funeral flowers are usually subtle in color and most always choose white flowers with green foliage to stand in peace and eternity. They represent your gloomy mood and sadness.
