Florists and funeral service providers often go hand in hand, as many funerals involve flowers either as decorations or gifts. Funeral homes like Embrace Funeral Services will usually have some recommended florists that they work with regularly.
With this many florists in Singapore, it can be tough to decide who to go with for your floral needs. Especially so since it’s for such a sensitive and poignant purpose as condolence flowers.
All so often, we just go with the household names that we know, without considering other florists who may offer a more catered service or value-for-money prices.
In this post, we will explore 6 solid artisanal florists in Singapore that offer a wide array of floral-related services including condolences flowers. We think these florists deserve more attention because they are solid. Solid to us means quality, not overly flashy, and a little bit underrated.
What are condolence flowers?
Condolence flowers are usually sent to the bereaved family soon after the death of a loved one. They can be sent in the form of a wreath, a bouquet, or a basket of flowers.
Sending condolence flowers is a way to show your support and sympathy for the bereaved family. It is also a way to honour the memory of the deceased.
There are many different types of condolence flowers, but some of the most common ones include lilies, roses, orchids, and chrysanthemums. Such flowers used are typically more subdued in colour, avoiding those garish and lavish flowers that are usually reserved for more celebratory occasions.
However, it might be worthy to note that some bereaved families might prefer certain types of flowers or that funeral services for some religions might also lean towards certain flowers. You might want to ask the bereaved what kind they prefer first.
Now that we know a little bit more about condolence flowers, let’s take a look at some of the boutique florists in Singapore who sell them.
