What Should I Write on my Mom’s Funeral Flowers?

When writing a funeral flower message for your mom it’s best to keep it short. Messages are usually a few touching words or sentences that express just how much you will miss your mom.

If you’re writing a note to go with flowers or a wreath then it’s tends to be small anyway, not leaving much room for a longer message. But you should be able to find enough space to express what you truly feel about losing and saying goodbye to your mom.

  • As just mentioned, try to keep it as short as you can. It’s understandable to have a lot to say after losing your mom but in these circumstances it’s best to go for a shorter message and save something longer for a eulogy.
  • In your message you may want to consider some of your most treasured memories of your mom and possibly sharing those.
  • If you and your family had a strong faith or were religious then it’s perfectly normal for your message to reflect this and talk in a way she would have been happy with.
  • However, if your mother wasn’t religious then stick with a regular message and avoid one with any religious overtones

The following example messages should help you to find the right words if you’re struggling with what to say or write in either a flower or wreath message.

Sending funeral 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 funeral flowers. If you decide to include a card it can be stressful trying to find the correct words to say for funeral flower messages.

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 sympathy messages for flowers 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.

Do you Write your Name on Funeral Flowers?

Yes, you sign the card with flowers or ask the florist who is sending them to sign your name for you. If it’s from just you then sign your full name. If it’s from your family then sign it as ‘The Smith family’.

If your flowers are part of a group, from a workplace for example, then you would sign it as a group rather than each doing so individually.

Are Funeral Flowers Addressed to the Deceased or Family?

If you are sending flowers to the Funeral then those flowers should be addressed to the deceased and not the family.

Flowers sent to show your sympathy after a loss should be addressed to the family of the departed.

When Should you Send Funeral Flowers?

Flowers intended for the funeral should, ideally, arrive on the day of the service. However sending them a few days before is also acceptable. As long as they arrive before the service itself. Flowers sent to express sympathy and offer condolences for a loss can be sent before or after a funeral.

Where Should you Send Funeral Flowers?

If your flowers are a larger arrangement (a wreath or standing spray) then they should be delivered directly to the funeral home or wherever the service is service held.

If you have sent a bunch or bouquet of flowers to offer your condolences then they are addressed and sent to the family home where they can be displayed.

What Kind of Flowers do you Send When Someone Dies?

There are many choices that work well as sympathy flowers after a death. White Lilies are a popular option and won’t be controversial. A mixed arrangement is also a good choice. If you aren’t sure then ask for advice from your florist. They will be able to offer help and guidance, and in some cases put together the arrangement for you.

What to send to a Funeral Other than Flowers?

Flowers are the traditional choice but there are many alternatives.

  • A donation in the deceased or families honor
  • A gift card for a house cleaning service to do the chores and cleaning whilst the family of the bereaved grieves
  • A food gift basket
  • A Sympathy plant or tree/shrub
  • A candle

For more ideas see our selection of sympathy gift ideas.

Hopefully the message examples here will have helped you if you’re struggling with what to write on a funeral card.

Remember that your words and what you say is far less important than making sure you say something.

You should always try to make the effort to send a card or flowers to a funeral. But whatever you choose to write the grieving family will appreciate you having taken the time to reach out and won’t be concerned with your message not being perfect.
