Funeral Flowers Buying Guide

After suffering the loss of a loved one, it can be overwhelming to try and make all the important decisions regarding their funeral. When it comes to choosing the right flowers to represent them on the day there are a lot of options to choose from.

Here, we go through the most popular arrangements available for funeral flowers and the different options within them, to help make your decision making a little bit easier.


Flowers arranged in the shape of letters is one of the most popular types of arrangements for funerals. This is because you can request for them to say exactly what you would like, from arrangements that describe their relationship with you such as ‘Mum’ or ‘Grandad’ or ones with your loved ones name on it. These types of arrangement are a perfect way to personalise the day.


Wreaths are a stunning way to pay tribute to someone you love as they tend to represent the idea of eternal life. They are designed with a few different types of flowers and foliage combined to make a truly unique tribute.


Sprays tend to cover the top of the coffin and are a mix of different types of flower. The flowers types can be chosen by you to reflect the deceased. These arrangements are the perfect send off for any funeral.


Tied sheaths are a touching and thoughtful gift to bring along to a funeral. They are a simple and elegant collection of flowers that can be laid alongside the grave or placed next to the casket.


Posies are a beautiful and respectful gift to send along to the funeral or to the bereaved family. They can come in a variety of styles, some more traditional and some more contemporary. These circular arrangements are filled with flowers and foliage and can be admired from all angles.


If you are looking for something a bit more tailored to your loved one, then this is something that we can help you with. Shaped arrangements, such as those in the shape of a heart or shaped as something that represents the deceased, are popular choices.

We work with you to design arrangements that really make the personality of your loved one shine through.
