Read on to learn more about how cultural differences can affect your choice of funeral flowers:
- Christian Services: Flower arrangements are a common and appropriate expression of condolences throughout most Christian faiths, such as Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, Lutheran, and Baptist denominations.
- Mormon Services: Like the other Christian denominations listed above, flowers are a welcome sympathy gift during times of mourning. It is important, however, to avoid any cross-shaped flower arrangements or accessories, as those are not permitted by the religion.
- Buddhist Services: In the Buddhist tradition, white blooms are the traditional choice for funeral flowers. Please note that red flowers are considered inappropriate for mourning and should be avoided.
- Asian Services: In the traditional cultures of Korea, China, and Japan, chrysanthemums in white and yellow are considered classic funeral flowers. They symbolize grief and mourning in support of the grieving family.
