Funeral flower service stabilizes business

For those who are planning to have their own floral shop or want to be a floral designer, learning funeral floral decorations is so important. I can say it is as important as wedding flowers. Most of people pay attention to wedding flower arrangements seemingly because wedding is a very exciting and happy events. On the other hand, when it comes to funeral ceremony, it has a sad image and miserable image and people are apt to stay away from such event. This is quite understandable.

However when we think about funeral flowers as a business, we cannot ignore this decoration because there is a big demand for funeral floral decoration and regardless of a season, we MAY expect constant business. As far as "Man (and  Woman) is mortal", we cannot avoid funeral ceremonies. Suppose you offer only wedding flower services, during winter season, your business usually slows down although it is quite active during spring season. Old people are apt to pass away during winter season. If so, there is stable demand for funeral flowers in the winter when wedding business slows down. In this sense funeral flower business COULD compensate loss of floral business in the winter season.

Also we can find may couples who get married without holding any official wedding ceremony/party. However once somebody passes away, they usually hold a funeral ceremony that usually needs floral decorations. In this sense funeral floral decoration has much more stable demand than wedding flowers.

Generally speaking funeral related business is not very affected by economy. One more thing I would like to add is that when somebody dies, a family member usually gets paid by insurance company (Lots of people effect life insurance or burial insurance). Therefore funeral expenses are often financially supported by insurance unlike the expenses of a wedding.

Another advantage of funeral flower business compared with wedding floral business is as mentioned below:
As far as wedding flower business is concerned, many customers spend time for making price negotiations. This is because they have lots of time available until wedding is held. However when it comes to funerals, most of people pass away without any schedule. Therefore customers are pressed for the time and they do not have enough time for price negotiation. This situation MAY help flower decorators make their job much easier.

As seen from above, funeral floral decorating business is so important and if you are planning to do floral business in the future, you should earn skills of funeral flower decorations.
