5 flowers that represent goodbye/ I miss you/ loss

some flowers have particular symbolic meanings and are frequently sent to show sympathy. Let us explore five of the most popular farewell flowers for colleague or funerals. Hopefully, by the time you’re done reading, you’ll understand the flower language:

  • Lilies

Lilies can be a powerful symbol of the spirit of a loved one that offers hope and encouragement to the grieving family. The lily flower meaning is farewell and goodbye. You can choose to have the lilies mixed with other flowers or foliage to show warm memories.

  • Chrysanthemum

This gorgeous flower is often used as an expression of support or an encouragement to “get well soon.” In many European countries, the chrysanthemum is placed on graves and viewed as a symbol of death.

  • Hyacinth

The purple hyacinth meaning is sorrow and regret. When sent in a funeral setting, these flowers let the family members know that you’re aware of their suffering and you care.

  • Roses 

Different types of roses may be used to communicate sympathy to a family that has lost a loved one. White roses represent purity and innocence, peach roses represent sincerity and gratitude, while yellow roses are a symbol of friendship and express your support. It’s always important to know the symbolic meanings associated with different roses.

  • Carnations 

Some people believe that the word carnation came from the word “incarnation” which is a Latin word meaning “God in the flesh.” This means that carnations can be given to a family to honor a life well-lived.

Etiquette when Delivering Farewell Flowers

Before sending farewell flowers, you need to know about what is appropriate to send and where to send them. So many people avoid sending farewell flowers because they’re not sure about what is right and what isn’t. This section takes the mystery out of sending farewell flowers by giving you a list of dos and don’ts:

  1. It’s okay to send the flowers to the family’s home
  2. You can ask the florist to include the deceased’s favorite flower. The flower for the dead could also be something of significance to the family – they will appreciate the extra though
  3. It’s okay to send a potted plant to the family instead of flowers
  4. Send the sympathy flowers as soon as you hear the sad news
  5. You don’t have to send white flowers. Other acceptable colors include yellow, lilac, and pale pink. All these express flower language goodbye.
  6. Don’t send farewell flowers if you’re not sure of the family’s religious beliefs. For example, sending flowers isn’t considered appropriate in Hindus and Jewish traditions. Instead, you can send a fruit basket – a simple text or email would also work great. If you can, always ask the opinion of someone close to the family.

Conclusion 

Whether or not you send farewell flowers depends on the type of relationship you had with the deceased or the bereaved family. Getting a farewell gift for the bereaved family shows that you’re thinking about them and they will appreciate the support. In case you get them a farewell bouquet, include a heartfelt message in a card and let them know that they’re in your thoughts. This kind of support enables the family that’s grieving the loss of a loved one to eventually move on with their lives.
