Traditionally, mourning the loss of someone can be done through sending funeral flowers, condolence wreaths or a funeral flower bouquet. Even with the movement control order (MCO) easing up, the Malaysian authorities have instructed that only close family members are allowed to attend funerals. In addition, religious people have shared that people can mourn from home if they cannot attend funerals. No doubt, traditional ways of coping with loss have to be changed, the psychology of loss does not. Choosing ways to cope with grief like purchasing funeral flowers and condolence wreaths are a way for friends and family members to process this. Apart from limiting those who can attend funerals, five sectors have been allowed to operate are industrial and manufacturing, construction, services, trade and distribution, as well as plantations and commodities. While plantations continue to operate, condolence florists in Kuala Lumpur like us, SG Florist, will continue to provide condolence flowers and flowers for funerals through this MCO. Rest assured, even though you are not able to attend a funeral, you can still send funeral flowers and condolence wreaths.
While you’re at home, here’s a quick guide on how to choose the best condolence wreaths and funeral flowers for your budget.
What to look out for?
Before sending flowers, knowing what type of funeral service — wake, funeral or memorial service will help you to choose the type of funeral flowers to send. You can also check with the family of the deceased if there are any constraints or what they would like. If you are attending a funeral during the MCO, observe all rules and regulations to or like this funeral parlour quips, “Stay home or stay with us”.
When choosing funeral flowers, the rule of thumb is to go by the colours first, then they type of flowers. Here’s a guide to funeral flower colours and what they signify:
- White and yellow chrysanthemums are widely used in our funeral flower arrangements to say goodbye in Asia.
- Green, white and pink carnations are also often used to symbolise ‘I miss you’ in remembrance of a deceased loved one or friend.
- White and pink lilies symbolise sympathy, we use them in the majority of our premium funeral sprays.
