Sending flowers to someone during a time of loss is a lovely thing to do. It shows you care and want to wish them well throughout such a difficult time. However, you will often be given the option to include a card and message with your flowers. If you decide to include a card it can be stressful trying to find the correct words to say in it.
Take the time to consider your wording, as funeral flower messages have the power with only a few lines to raise someone’s spirits and show that they are not alone. A sense of understanding and support can be conveyed which will be greatly appreciated when they are struggling through a loss.
These flower messages will be suitable for the card you wish to accompany the flowers you send or you can adapt so they are most suitable for your situation.
What to Write on Funeral Flowers
Your flower message needn’t be too long or a literature master work. A few words of sympathy, acknowledging their loss and maybe offering comfort is all that is needed. Often the flowers you buy come with a small card that you can write your message on, and because of it’s size that doesn’t leave much room to write a lot. But a short and simple sentence or couple of lines is more than enough to express your condolences. Alternatively if you want to say more, and it’s absolutely fine to do so, you can buy your own card and send it with the flowers. As long as you speak from the heart and are sincere though then your message will be warmly received.
You can stick to these few simple tips when writing your own:
- Keeping your message short and simple is the way to go if you’re struggling with what to say. As said above a short few words or sentences are enough to get your feelings across
- If you can, and if you are going for a slightly longer message, share something personal about the deceased. Possibly an anecdote or memory of them. This personalisation of your card can
- Be mindful of the beliefs of the deceased and their family. For example if they aren’t particularly religious then you should avoid a religious message in case they take offence to it or find it uncomfortable
If you are still a bit unsure or not confident of what to say in a funeral flower message then the examples below should give you an idea and hopefully some inspiration to write your own. Many of them are also perfect for a funeral wreath message if you are sending one as opposed to a regular bouquet of flowers.
