What is a Funeral Wreath

A funeral wreath is a floral tribute for someone who has passed away. It is an accompaniment to the deceased as they make their way to the funeral and will follow them from the service to the graveside. This is opposed to flowers that are sent to the bereaved family or friends as a way of expressing sympathy or condolences.

Funeral wreaths originate from Ancient Greece and were worn as signs of power by important members of society. When used for funerals they signified the circle of life.

When used by Christian’s to commemorate martyrs they would be made from evergreens which because of its ability to survive the harsh winters represented victory of the soul over death.
