Sending flowers and funeral messages to someone in the funeral planning stage can be a comforting gesture. It shows that you care and want to wish them well in times of sadness. However, finding the right words to say can be challenging when given the option to include a funeral flower card and message with the flowers.

Funeral flower messages have the power to raise someone’s spirits and show that they are not alone. If you’re unsure how to summarise your sadness and offer your support in a few short lines, don’t worry. We’ve put together a guide with a few ideas to help you get started.

Short Funeral Flower Messages

There’s no harm in keeping your funeral flowers message short and simple. Just a few words can be enough to show your support and offer real comfort to anyone going through tough times after losing a loved one. Some short, sweet examples of sincere sympathy messages to consider include:

Religious Funeral Flower Messages

  • Wishing you God’s grace during this challenging time
  • May God comfort you in this difficult time
  • Peace, prayers, and blessings
  • In God’s arms, may you gently rest
  • Wishing you God’s care
  • Praying for you and your family during this difficult time
  • Praying that God will bring peace to your spirit and comfort your heart during this difficult time
  • I hope you find strength in God’s love during this time of grief

Sympathy Card Messages

Often the sympathy flowers you buy come with a small card that you can write your heartfelt condolences on. However, if you want to say more than just a short, simple sentence or a couple of lines, you can buy a funeral card and send it with the flowers.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when writing your funeral card messages:

  • Speak from the heart and be sincere
  • If you’re looking to share a slightly longer funeral flower message, try to share something personal about the deceased—possibly a memory of them. Alternatively, explain how the deceased was a wonderful person or write just a simple prayer.
  • Be mindful of the bereaved family’s beliefs. If you aren’t sure about the kind of flowers to send when someone dies, consider asking for advice from your florist. They will be able to offer help and guidance.

While there is no perfect flower you can purchase, our funeral and cremation experts can give you a few tips that would help you choose funeral flowers. Always try to make an effort to send flowers or a card to a funeral. Rather than focus on your condolence flowers message being perfect, remember that the grieving family will appreciate your gesture.
