What types of flower arrangements are there?

Let’s first set things into perspective. Knowing what types of flowers to send to a funeral is of crucial importance so as to avoid any mistakes. For starters, you can check out our guide on choosing funeral flowers to give you a better idea of what flowers are suitable for funeral wakes or processions.

What does each floral arrangement mean?

Understanding what each floral arrangement means would also help in deriving your selection. Typically, close family members or relatives would opt for the bigger flowers for the funeral service. These include funeral flower stands, casket spray, large sprays on stands, or even wreaths. On the other hand, other attendees at the funeral often opt for smaller flower arrangements like funeral flower bouquets. Ultimately, do consider your relationship with the deceased, as well as their religion, to decide which flowers and floral arrangements are best. Here’s a quick look at each of the funeral flower arrangement types and what it usually stands for —

  • Flower stands/sprays: Standing sprays are displayed on an easel and are typically displayed near the casket. Commonly sent to a funeral home, flower stands or sprays 
  • Wreaths: These larger, prominent floral arrangements are displayed near the casket on an easel and are appropriate for family and close friends. The circular shape of a funeral wreath is a poignant way to represent eternal life, while funeral crosses represent faith and the heart stands for love. They are often delivered to a funeral home and may be taken to a gravesite.
  • Bouquets: An assortment of flora that is carefully arranged in an accenting fabric wrap, our range of funeral flower bouquet is a humble gift for the bereaving family.
