Do you have a funeral to attend and have no idea what floral arrangement is appropriate to send? Unsure whether to send flowers or take them to the funeral? Where are you suppose to send them anyway?
It wasn't until I had to send some flowers on behalf of my family to bereaved friends that I realised these questions and more needed answering first. Here's some tips from what I learnt.
1 Should you send flowers?
2 Does it matter what type of arrangement you send?
3 What type of arrangements are there?
Now this is where it becomes complex as some arrangements seem to have different names. I hope to simplify this for you. Some you're probably already familiar with, but others might be new to you (as it was for me).
4 Where do you send the floral tribute?
HOME OF THE BEREAVED
5 When do you send the floral tribute?
Condolence flowers can be sent at anytime to the home of the bereaved family even after the funeral of the deceased, to let them know you're still thinking about them.
Tribute flowers which are being sent for the deceased should be ordered 48 hours before the funeral, at the latest.
