Wreath for Funeral in Malaysia: How to Choose the Best Funeral Wreath?

Funerals, a celebration of one’s life, and also mournful occasions. It is an appreciation to express our thoughts and feelings to the deceased and his loved ones, and also an opportunity to reach out and show support, as you grieve collectively with the deceased’s family.

One traditional way of expressing thoughts and love to someone who has just passed, is through the giving of flowers, or wreaths in particular. This has been a long-running tradition in many parts of the world, and remains an appropriate way to pass on condolences.

However, choosing the correct and most appropriate funeral wreath can be a challenge. There are various colour schemes and different styles to choose from, and different cultures and faiths may have different preferences.

Funeral wreaths most commonly come in the shape of a circular design, and are most suitable to be sent directly to a funeral house or wake location.

Funeral wreath recommendations

There are a number of funeral wreaths to choose from, including an array of designs, shapes, and colours. Wreaths are usually created and arranged upon order, using fresh flowers, including common options of lilies, roses, carnations, chrysanthemums and gerberas. 

Here are some common options, and their meanings.

  • Classic white wreath: A common, popular and safe option. It boasts an elegant design, often comprising carnations, white roses and wax flowers. It represents eternal pureness and sanctity.
  • Classic pink wreath: A classic pink wreath is similar in style, with the addition of pretty pinks and purples. carnations, chrysanthemums and roses often make up this funeral wreath. There is a message of love and hope that comes with it.
  • Rose trio heart: This is a good option for those looking for a more personalised design, due to the heart shape of the wreath. Roses in hues of pink and white are usually used,  and aim to lift the mood of those in mourning.
  • White lily wreath: Oriental lilies, carnations and chrysanthemums make up this elegant wreath, which boasts an abundance of fresh flowers. This symbolises purity and rebirth, wishing for a good afterlife for the deceased.

What to say in a funeral card

Equally important is the message on the funeral card, accompanying the funeral wreath.

Sending a funeral wreath to a friend or a family member during a time of loss is a wonderful act of kindness, and one that shows you care and want to wish them well throughout a difficult period. 

Finding the right words to say is a challenge and must be considered wisely. With your message, try to raise the spirits of those mourning and show them that they are not alone. Offering a sense of understanding and support is a great way to do this.
