Funeral Flower Advice for Family Members
When buying funeral flowers for a family member, please consider the following:
CASKET ARRANGEMENT - Will the casket be open or closed?
Closed casket arrangements are generally larger to cover two-thirds (2/3) of the casket.
The length of the viewing will determine:
- How open the flowers should be – Fresh flowers open up over time and depending on the surrounding temperature. Short viewings should have more open flowers. More extended viewings will have a mix of open flowers and flowers that will open up over time.
- The type of flowers that may or may not be used – Some flowers do better out of water than others. If you have an extended viewing planned, we can recommend the types of flowers you should consider.
FAVOURITE FLOWERS & COLOURS
If known, please notify us of favourite flowers/colours of the deceased. Some fresh flowers are not available year-round. We will advise of suitable substitutions that match the other flowers and colours chosen.
