Honouring Loved Ones: A Guide to Meaningful Funeral Flowers and Arrangements

Losing a loved one is a profound experience, and selecting the right funeral flowers is an important way to pay tribute to their life and offer solace to those mourning. At Sarah Ashleigh Designs, your trusted flower preservation artist and florist in Buckinghamshire, we understand the significance of choosing funeral flowers with care and compassion. In this guide, we explore different types of funeral flowers and arrangements, while also discussing the option of preserving these precious blooms in resin as a lasting tribute.

1. Traditional Wreaths:

Traditional wreaths are timeless symbols of remembrance and honor. Typically circular in shape, these arrangements are often adorned with a variety of blooms and greenery. Common choices for funeral wreaths include classic white roses, serene lilies, and delicate chrysanthemums. All of these flowers can be preserved in resin beautifully. Ensure you keep your flowers cool and out of the elements (including rain!) before sending.

2. Elegant Casket Sprays:

Casket sprays are designed to adorn the casket or coffin, serving as a beautiful tribute to the deceased. These elongated arrangements typically feature a mix of flowers and foliage arranged in a cascading manner. Soft pastel tones such as pale pink, lavender, and ivory are often chosen for their soothing and comforting effect. Bright colours such as reds yellow and pinks can also offer comfort and serve as a celebration of life. Brighter colours look wonderful preserved in resin, although reds darken when dried, they still look beautiful. Preserving funeral flowers is a wonderful way to honour a loved one.

3. Heartfelt Bouquets:

Bouquets are a heartfelt way to express condolences and sympathy to grieving friends and family members. These smaller arrangements can be placed on the altar, displayed on pedestals, or given as personal tributes to those closest to the departed. Consider incorporating meaningful flowers such as forget-me-nots, which symbolize everlasting love and remembrance and are stunning preserved resin. At Sarah Ashleigh Designs, we offer a range of beautifully crafted bouquets that convey your deepest sentiments with sincerity and grace.

4. Personalized Tributes:

Adding personal touches to funeral flowers can make them even more meaningful. Consider incorporating elements that reflect your loved one's personality, hobbies, or interests. Whether it's a miniature guitar for a music lover or a cluster of seashells for someone who adored the ocean, these thoughtful details can add a unique and personal touch to the arrangements. Our team at Sarah Ashleigh Designs works closely with you to create personalised tributes that celebrate the life and legacy of your loved one in a meaningful way. We always welcome bespoke resin designs too, and offer resin letters and hearts as well as paperweights and blocks. But if it'd something different you are looking for for your memorial flower preservation, get in touch.
