While it is appropriate for immediate family to order any type of floral tribute they desire, some types of funeral flowers and some display locations are generally considered to be strictly for them. Flowers placed directly on or inside the casket almost always come from immediate family members.
Typically, the casket spray comes from the spouse, children, siblings, or parents of the deceased. Wreaths or pillows laid on the end of the casket usually come from the children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews of the departed. Pillows or floral swags to go in the lid of the casket are most often provided by the children, grandchildren, parents, or grandparents. Flowers held in the hands of the deceased also traditionally come from immediate family.
Immediate family members often order standing sprays or easel arrangements, or other funeral flowers to be displayed close by the casket.
