During times of great loss or tragedy, it can be difficult finding the right words to say.

Whether it's for a close friend or distant relative, it can sometimes be difficult understanding the etiquette for sending sympathy flowers online. To help you express your deepest condolences and sympathies, we’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions around sympathy flower delivery. 


What do I say with sympathy flowers? 

Sending a comforting sympathy message alongside a floral bouquet or arrangement is a beautiful way to let your recipient know that they’re in your thoughts. For sympathy messages, it ultimately comes down to the nature of your relationship to the deceased or bereaved. So during times of tragedy or loss, it’s important to take the time to plan what it is you’d like to say. 

If you’re in need of some inspiration, you can always start with a sympathy poem, quote or phrase that perfectly expresses how you feel for you. If they’re a close family member or friend, you could write about a dear memory shared that you shared with them and hold close to your heart. Writing only a few short, but meaningful sentences has the power to make someone feel a great sense of comfort and support. 


What are good sympathy flowers? 

The true beauty of flowers lies in their ability to reflect a loved one’s personality or express their own special symbolic meaning. Traditionally speaking, white lilies are the most common sympathy flower as a symbol of innocence and rebirth. There are also a number of other appropriate flower types to express your sympathies, such as roses, tulips, orchids, chrysanthemums, or flowering plants like a peace lily. 

When it comes to choosing the right sympathy bouquet for your loved one or friend, it’s always a nice idea to send a more personalised arrangement with either a selection of their favourite flowers or florals that are representative of their personality. Not only will this make for a more memorable gift, but will also show you have put additional thought into their wellbeing. 


When do I send sympathy flowers? 

There’s no right or wrong time to send someone a thoughtful sympathy flower arrangement. Depending on the nature of your relationship to the deceased or bereaved, you can choose to send flowers the moment you feel it is an appropriate time to show your support or express your deepest condolences. It’s important to remember that it’s never too late to let someone know that they’re in your thoughts. 

In times of loss, you may also wish to send sympathy or funeral flowers directly to the funeral home. In this case, you would need to specify the specific date and time of the funeral.
