Tips for Sending Flowers to a Funeral

Since most people don’t attend funerals often, it can be difficult to know what to bring or how to console the grieving family. You may not know how to prepare for a memorial service or funeral as a guest. Not only that, but the gift-giving etiquette may change based on each family’s individual culture or religion. At Baldwin Brothers Funeral & Cremation Society of Florida, our professionals are experts in funeral and memorial planning. We can provide education and resources about sending flowers to a funeral. 

Flowers are a wonderful way to pay tribute to the life of a deceased friend or family member. Bouquets let people know that you are thinking of them in a personal and expressive manner. While some funerals require people to bring the flowers themselves, some venues allow families to send gifts ahead of time. To learn more about funeral flowers and how to plan for a memorial event, contact the team at Baldwin Brothers. Our staff hopes to help ease the pain of losing a loved one. 

What to bring to a funeral or memorial service 

Sending flowers is a common way to remember and honor someone who has died. Flowers have been used to celebrate life for years and it is still a valued tradition in most cultures. If you are wondering whether you should bring flowers or a gift to a funeral or memorial service, sometimes families will list their preferences in the funeral announcement. Although a gift is not required to attend, it is considered polite not to arrive with something in hand. 

Flowers are normally sent on the day of the funeral or memorial service. It is important for the florist to know the date and time of the funeral so the arrangement is not delayed. When a family has requested such gifts instead of flowers, financial donations to a charity or organization of choice are an excellent choice. A handwritten note or card is another way to express your condolences and is a welcome gesture. 

Sending a sympathy arrangement 

Along with our cremation services in Florida, Baldwin Brothers offers traditional funeral and memorial services as well. We often answer questions about sending sympathy arrangements for events. Sometimes clients in Orlando, Ocala, or Fort Myers ask about where to send flowers. In addition to sending flowers directly to the funeral home, individuals can also bring them to the gravesite with permission from the family. If you were very close with the deceased, you can send the flowers to a family member’s so home so they can appreciate them for longer.
