Can I plan my own funeral?

You can plan your own funeral via a funeral directive or as part of your list of last wishes, but the document isn't legally binding. While your family and friends may have the best intentions in honoring your funeral plans, some things may not be possible to arrange. For instance, a pallbearer you request may be unable to attend, or the place you want your ashes scattered may be off-limits for this.
