Funerals are a sad affair and yet are a part of our lives. In the event you have lost your loved one, it is very difficult to make decisions of whatever kind but the tasks must still be done. The task of choosing flowers is one such instance. It simply can’t be avoided. Flowers do have a way to brighten up the funeral though and they brighten up the occasion despite the ongoings. The challenge is then how to choose the funeral flowers. Find below how to choose funeral flowers.
The first thing you need to do is to identify a great flower shop where you shall get the flowers from. The funeral home you are working with can guide you on this or even take up the challenge at an extra fee into picking a vendor that they have worked with before. If you opt not to spend on this and do it yourself, let the funeral home give you a top three list of you can use to check against. Ensure you confirm their existence by making a call or even sending an email. When you contact the flower vendor, take that opportunity to gauge if the vendor is capable of handling such an order and do it in a timely fashion.
A budget is always mandatory when you want to save some money because it gives you limits. When you have not determined how much money you can put into buying the flowers you will easily go beyond what you can pay for. Before you even find a company to supply you the flowers, you need to have to have planned and set apart money specifically for the flowers. This will guide you on the type of flowers to get and how many you will be able to afford. Not everyone that attends the funeral has to put a flower on the grave, so to reduce on the costs you can limit the number of flowers.
Think of the religious practices of the overseeing body. It is only considerate to do what is right by the religion even if you don’t hold the same views because some religions may limit the use of flowers while others may not. In order not to offend anyone, ensure you have confirmed the same before purchase.
There are different flower arrangements that can be used in the funeral, there are casket sprays, standing sprays, bouquets among many more. Consult the family on the preference they feel comfortable with and then choose accordingly. Put in mind the fact that either or all the options on the table can be used in the funeral and therefore this decision should not cause strife amongst family members. Ensure the flower vendor send over samples or diagrams of the arrangements so that it is be easy to make the choice for all with the visual aid provided.
