When ordering funeral flowers for a friend or loved one, keep in mind funeral customs differ among various religions, or even nationalities. Most religious funerals will incorporate flowers into the funeral, however, some religions, such as Judaism, generally do not incorporate flowers into the ceremony.
Other Christian religions, such as those of the LDS faith, prefer to avoid the Cross on funeral arrangements.

Before ordering flowers, be sure to double check the religious customs of the family before placing your order.
