How to Choose the Most Appropriate Flowers for a Funeral

Flowers have always been a traditional portion of the mourning process. Not only will they be able to add a sense of vibrancy to the event, but these arrangements serve to remind us of the transformation process associated with life itself.

This is why choosing the most appropriate flowers is an important step. Let's look at some of the most popular options as well as how to make an informed decision.


Most experts recommend that lilies are excellent choices, as these flowers are said to highlight purity and a sense of innocence.


While lilies come in numerous colours, the majority of individuals will choose a variety known as white stargazers.


While we are all aware that roses have been the traditional symbol for love, different hues can represent unique emotions. Here are some examples:


  • Yellow: Friendship
  • Pink: Gratitude
  • Orange: Passion and commitment

The colour of rose can also be determined by what is contained within any gravestone inscriptions if you choose.


Sometimes known simply as "mums", these flowers are very popular choices; particularly in regions such as France.


Mums are associated with the afterlife and they have been used to commemorate All Souls Day for centuries. Gold, pink and red are common colours to consider.


These flowers have a strong connotation with innocence and purity. Daisies can likewise be used to celebrate an individual who had a great sense of humour.


They are also quite popular if the funeral will be taking place in a more rustic atmosphere (such as within a woodland environment).
