Does That Answer Your Question?

What type of flowers to bring to a funeral?

The most commonly chosen flower to bring to a funeral is lillies. White star gazer lillies specifically symbolize sympathy. Another good option is chrysanthemums, which can also symbolize sympathy, and of course, roses.

When white, they all symolize innocence, which is an important factor when departing the deceased and they can be either placed on the casket, or given to the immediate family.

However, it is important to note that there is a difference between "funeral" flowers and "sympathy" flowers. If you opt for a large and formal floral arrangement, it should be sent directly to the funeral home where it will stay, instead of taking up room in the deceased's family's home. If you would like to give the flowers directly to the family, look for a smaller bouquet that can be placed on a table or window sill.
