5 Things to Keep in Mind While Buying a Condolence Wreath in Singapore

The circle of life goes on and on. Therefore, the funeral also represents the circle of eternal life. If you are reading this blog, it’s highly possible that someone in your family or your loved ones might have recently passed away. We understand that it can be challenging to choose a condolence wreath while dealing with grief. However, when you buy one, you just can’t pick it randomly and present it at the funeral. That’s right; you must consider some crucial factors while buying these wreaths because every size or colour holds a meaning.

So, let’s dig straight into it.

  • Your relationship with the deceased

No matter how you relate to the deceased, expressing grief and sympathy is a good gesture. In most cases, the size of the flower arrangement also demonstrates how close you were to the deceased. It is quite apparent while purchasing funeral flowers that close family members would buy a larger wreath. On the other hand, it is wise to pick smaller wreaths and flower arrangements in vases if you are not a family member or closely related.

  • Faith of the deceased family

Singapore is a multicultural country with people from different faiths. There are instances when one object might be considered appropriate by one but not by the other. For example, cross-shaped flower wreaths might be ideal for Christian family funerals, but flower garlands are more suitable for Hindu families. Thus, it’s always recommended to research before choosing one.

  • The right combination of flowers

A condolence wreath is made from different kinds of flowers. Daisy, chrysanthemum, gladiolus, aster, carnation, gerbera, etc., are typically used to create a traditional funeral look. The colour of the flowers also matters big time. The most common shades for condolence flowers are white, yellow, deep purple, and light pink. Here, white flowers symbolize innocence and purity, while purple represents respect, sympathy, grief, and so on. Loud and bright colours are never used in such floral arrangements.

  • Type of arrangement

Do you know that wreaths are not the only type of arrangement you can get? Condolence flowers can be in the form of stands, crosses, bouquets, and baskets. Based on your requirements and other factors, you can choose among them. For example, big casket wreaths aren’t suitable for everyone to buy. They are large and are typically placed by the deceased’s family members.

  • Time and occasion

Are you heading to the funeral the following day, or do you want to sympathize later at their home? Whatever you think is right according to the situation, you can make it easier with online orders. Several online florists let you send the flowers directly to the venue.

Final Thoughts

Considering the abovementioned points, you can find the perfect condolence flowers. If you still have difficulty deciding, get in touch with a trusted florist like Prince’s Flower Shop. Along with offering a wide range of floral arrangements, they can surely guide you in picking the appropriate ones. They are a reliable online florist known for their unmatched same-day flower delivery in Singapore. Looking for fresh and high-quality floral bouquets and wreaths? Order today.

one of my most fav nurseries out of many i’ve explored in SG. it’s conveniently located near bukit panjang mrt. above all, the prices are reasonable (esp various types of soil mix, fertilizers, pesticides & pots). i’ve bought many plants here; on my lucky days i managed to buy a few rare caladiums and begonias! 😀

Bought my Valentine's bouquet here via instagram. The staff was friendly and patient in explaining the different types of bouquets available and worked well within my budget. They have both delivery and self-pickup options which made it very convenient for us buyers. Needless to say my special one was very pleased with the bouquet. Will definitely come back here again for my flowers.
