What’s the difference between a funeral spray and a funeral wreath?
Both a funeral spray and a funeral wreath is a decorative arrangement of flowers that’s displayed by the casket. Typically, a “standing” spray or “standing” wreath is ordered, which means that the arrangement is placed on a 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 ring 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 funeral flowers or funeral plants. The size of the spray or wreath 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.

What do you write on a funeral wreath?
If you’re going to send a wreath to a 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.
