Sending Sympathy Flowers To A Loved One After A Loss

Blog

When a friend or other loved one has suffered a major loss, sending sympathy flowers can be a thoughtful way of showing your support and love to these individuals. Yet, many individuals can feel very uncomfortable with buying and sending these flowers. Not surprisingly, this is often due to a lack of experience with this process or knowledge of the best practices that should be followed.

Decide Where You Will Send The Sympathy Flowers

A major decision that you will have to make early in the process of sending sympathy flowers is deciding where they will be sent. For example, if the loss was due to a death, some individuals may send the flowers to the funeral home. In cases where someone is seriously ill, the flowers may be sent to the hospital where they are staying. If you are planning to send these flowers to one of these locations, it can be worth the effort to contact these facilities ahead of time to make sure that you are sending the flowers to the correct address, during the appropriate times and while complying with any other restrictions that may be in place.

Be Mindful Of Space Limitations

It is understandable for individuals to want to send very large bouquets of flowers. However, this may not always be ideal. In particular, it is often the case that there may be strict space limits that will have to be followed. Additionally, you may not want your bouquet of flowers to overshadow the other thoughtful gifts and arrangements that loved ones may have sent. For this reason, it is often advisable to limit yourself to medium-sized bouquets. These arrangements will be large enough to still have a powerful impact on the recipients, but they will also be small enough to comfortably fit into the space that may be available.

Put A Lot Of Thought Into The Message That Is Included With The Flowers

The flowers that you send will be temporary, but you will have a chance to include a note or letter with the bouquet. When the flowers have to be thrown away, it is common for individuals to keep these notes as mementos to remember the outpouring of love that was received following their loss. As a result, you should spend time to make sure that this note is thoughtful and meaningful. In addition to being a nice touch in itself, this can also increase the emotional impact that your sympathy flowers have when they are received.
