To want an 'Interactive' type of funeral?

One evening recently a programme on the television prompted me to start a discussion with my DH about my funeral (which is hopefully still a good few years away, but you never know...). I want a Humanist service, cardboard coffin, no flowers (wicked waste of money), and no arguments over the choice of music which is Going On Up To The Spirit In the Sky on entry to the Crematorium and Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye as the coffin disappears behind the curtain. As each person takes an order of service they will also be given a small Union Jack and I want them to wave this as they sing. DH is horrified at what he regards as a total lack of respect for the occassion. What do others think?

Love all the songs and ideas - especially the fireworks - great ! BUT I want a willow coffin and want flowers everywhere! In fact I wish to be laid on flowers - just love them!! We have decided on a woodland burial so its back to nature for me!
