Funerals can be a painful experience for the majority of people, especially if it’s one of your loved ones that have recently passed away. Although funerals can be a great way to show how much you respect the deceased by giving them a good send off. Funerals are an event to honour and respect a person who has sadly passed away.
There are many things to consider before attending or planning a funeral, which is why you should always research these things so you can deliver the right message when attending.
The main thing to do is not draw attention to yourself, but rather pay your respects and offer condolences and support to the family members of the persons who have sadly passed away. Because of this, it is vital that you choose the right dress sense so you blend in with the other people who are attending. Keep it formal and simple, the best choice will always be black or dark brown. It is advisable to wear a simple white dress shirt, a black suit with a dark coloured tie to go with the shirt.
The worst thing you can do when attending a funeral is wear casual clothes, this can be anything from bright shirts, checkered shirts, jeans to bright trainers. If you do not have a appropriate suit to wear, don’t worry, there is other options available such as a dark coloured dress shirt with a matching tie and dark dress trousers with dark dress shoes. Wearing casual clothes just shows disrespect for the deceased as well as the people who are attending.
The other thing to think is about is flowers, the best flowers to choose are roses, lilies, gladiolas, carnations, irises and chrysanthemums. These types of flowers are always a good selection and reflect somber sympathy. Although it may seem as easy as that, but it’s always to consider things such as the colour of the flowers, for example pink flowers for a male funeral would be silly. Simply use common sense when choosing flowers for a funeral, or alternatively ask a florist for advice.
Follow the advice and tips above then you are good to go.
