Getting the right funeral arrangements can be difficult. Finding suitable flowers for the occasion without it overwhelming the rest of the presentation is a perfect medium. Here’s a few tips on getting the right arrangement for your funeral.


Favorite flower of the loved one as a start


The arrangement should begin with the favored flower of the loved one. This will give it a personal touch from them that allows for the ceremony to be beautiful and unique to them. Then, from there you can pair flowers that are in a similar color palette. Remember: don’t overwhelm the primary flower.


For example, if tulips were the favorite flower of the loved one, they should be the most overly present flower in the arrangement. If other colors cast a shadow over the primary, it depreciates the value of that flower in the arrangement.


Again, all this goes into presentation for the ceremony. This can be impacted by the guest list and who will be involved with the ceremony, but remember to prioritize the loved one’s wishes.


How should the arrangement be presented?


It can be presented as a part of the ceremony in a limited or major role. Whichever the case, you should plan this portion most judiciously. Also, this will depend on the color palette chosen. Most often, darker colored flowers are more easily worked into the ceremony at higher volume. Lighter colors need to be more subtly involved in most instances. To enjoy them both most easily, try getting a bit of both. With both involved, then it’ll be easier to not overwhelm the ceremony’s presentation.
