At Westridge florist we know that flowers are not only for celebrations and love, they are also used to bring comfort and condolences at funerals and sympathy occasions. Funeral and sympathy flowers really do make a difference to the grieving process that friends and family go through at these times.
Every person is unique, and we truly feel honoured to assist in creating a personal and significant gift for your loved one. It is quite often the last physical act you will do to show love, sympathy and respect. It can be a challenge for people to know exactly what to send or even what to say and we are quite used to helping people to find the exact flowers and words that they want to say. So please call us! At Westridge Florist we are here to help for your funeral or sympathy flowers.
One of the questions we often hear is, “What flowers are suitable to send to someone who has lost a loved one?”.
Our years of experience in this area give help and assurance to those who ask this question. It can be a very daunting experience if you have never been through this before. At Westridge Florist we take a very personal approach to your situation, to make sure we help you express your sympathy and condolences in a way that reflects those feelings.
We will ask you a couple of questions to help us to advise you of the most suitable arrangements and flowers for you to express your condolences. Some people like to send some conservative and traditional funeral flowers, such as white lilies or other white flowers, while others choose to send bright and colourful blooms. We can help you choose flowers that reflect the personality of your loved one, while expressing your feelings at the same time.
We can also help you to decide if you want the flowers to go to the home for the family or to have them delivered to the funeral. Sometimes you will want them to go to the funeral, and then for the family to take them home after the service.
We can inform the funeral director of your wishes so that this is carried out. We deliver the funeral flowers to the venue for you if you wish. While you may be attending the funeral, you may not want to take the flowers yourself.
Many of us struggle with the card message for a funeral or other sad event, especially when you yourself are grieving over the loss of a loved one. Here at Westridge Florist, we can make a few suggestions so that you can find the exact words to use to express your condolences, and your own sadness and love. We will help you choose the best floral arrangement to match your situation, and we like to believe the flowers will truly convey your condolences.
However, the words can be hard to find, and we are happy to assist with the wording so that your flowers and heartfelt message are true expressions of your feelings. So please know that we understand the difficulty that you may feel at such times. We are here to help you. The recipients of the funeral flowers and sympathy flowers often remind us what a help it is through the grieving process to receive flowers and kind messages.
And when it happens in your own life, when you lose someone you love: know that we will be understanding and sympathetic to your needs.
Again, we understand that the flowers are going to be the last physical gift you give your loved one and we know how important that is for you. In the times that follow the funeral, the flowers are such a great comfort to people; because, well, flowers just are. So please ask your local florist, Westridge Florist, to help you and we will be honoured to give you our absolute best service.
