When a person passes away, the most delicate and adequate way to remember him passes through many manifestations, but doing it through the etiquette of flowers to be sent for a funeral has always been the most poetic way to celebrate a person’s life.
The etiquette for sending flowers for a funeral
In such a delicate and painful event as a funeral, care must be taken with funeral etiquette, and be careful in evaluating the most suitable flower and decoration to choose.
In fact, whether it is floral decorations intended for the funeral ceremony, such as crowns or coffin covers, or whether it is instead of compositions to be given as a gift to the family of the deceased, some very precise rules must be followed, since there is an etiquette exclusively dedicated to this ceremonial.
What flowers should I send for sympathy?
A particular focus concerns the floral decorations, whose purpose is to pay homage to the missing person, but usually this type of compositions are reserved for close relatives or long-term friendships.
In the type of decorations intended for this function we find:
wreaths of flowers of different shapes for a man’s funeral, or coffin cushions and mixed vase compositions, for the deceased mother.
These compositions are intended to decorate the funeral home, mortuaries and in some cases even private homes.
As for the most suitable flower species for condolences, we find:
roses and calla lilies, which express affection for the person no longer among us, while the flower that more generally represents mourning is the chrysanthemum.
As for gladioli and white lilies they are usually used in the case of a disappearance at a young age.
In the choice of the color of the flowers it is customary to attribute the color yellow to men and pink for women, but the password in these cases always remains sobriety in not exceeding in particularly bright colors and preferring simplicity, with a single valid exception:
the personal choice expressed by the deceased.
In this case, the homage of the color and favorite flower overrides what is prescribed by the etiquette of flowers for a funeral.
