Funeral Sprays & Funeral Wreaths FAQs
What’s the difference between a funeral spray and a funeral wreath?
Funeral spray flowers and a funeral wreath are both decorative arrangements that are generally displayed by the casket. Typically, a “standing” spray or “standing” wreath is ordered, which means that the arrangement is placed on an easel so that it can be prominently displayed at a funeral service. A wreath is a design in which the plants and flowers are arranged in a circular shape. A wreath may sometimes be used as an adornment for the grave. Memorial wreaths are wreaths that may be displayed in the bereaved person’s home for any span of time after the funeral; it’s a bittersweet memento of the departed person. A spray is an arrangement of flowers that can take a variety of shapes and is not necessarily ring-shaped. Typically, it’s crafted in the form of a solid emblem or shield. Whether a wreath or spray is displayed at a funeral service is entirely a matter of preference.
How much do funeral sprays and funeral wreaths cost?
Sprays and wreaths are the most luxurious floral decorations that are displayed at funerals, and they cost more than traditional funeral flowers or funeral plants. The size of the wreath or floral spray for funeral service does not necessarily determine its price. Price often depends on the types of plants and flowers that are used in the arrangement, and whether they’re in-season and readily available. FTD works with the best local florists to craft the highest quality funeral sprays and wreaths. While many believe that no expenses should be spared for a funeralflower delivery, our wide network of FTD florists ensures that you’ll get the most competitive prices on your arrangements.
What do you write on a funeral wreath?
If you’re going to send a sympathy flowers delivery for the funeral service, you might want to include a personal note or message. Consider writing a few kind words about the person who has passed away. Poems are a popular way of expressing your grief and reverence for someone you were close to. Remember, though, that it’s also important to express your heartfelt condolences to the immediate family members and close friends of the deceased person. Your note could include an expression of sympathy for the mourners.
What flowers are best for a funeral casket spray?
The type of blooms you send for a casket spray is very much a personal decision. Any florist will tell you there is no right or wrong decision for flowers that are incorporated in a casket spray or funeral wreath. However, there are some flowers that are more commonly used in casket sprays than others. Partially because of their appearance, symbolism, and longevity. These floral arrangements – whether for a burial or cremation service, also play a more functional role. A bright spray of fresh blooms brings warmth and cheer to any space. Funeral wreaths and cremation flowers can elicit tender memories of years past. They can lift the mood and spark conversation about amazing moments spent together.
A funeral spray or wreath is a gift of compassion and care. At FTD, you will have a wonderful selection of arrangements featuring lilies, roses, daisies, irises, and other stunning flowers that will be appreciated by the recipients.
What do you do with casket spray after a funeral?
Families of the deceased are often inundated with a large amount of funeral flowers. After the service, they may choose to take the arrangements home, but larger wreaths and casket sprays are unwieldy and usually left on the grave. Some funeral homes or churches may offer to donate the flowers to a local nursing home or other families in need.
When should funeral wreaths and casket sprays be delivered?
If you are sending the arrangement to the funeral home, it is best if you have it delivered on the day of the service, so the flowers are at their freshest. If you need same day or next day funeral spray delivery, ensure the wreath or casket spray you select is eligible for this service. At FTD, you can shop all flowers with confidence, knowing the arrangement will be carefully prepared, transported, and delivered on the specified day.
