Flowers are only provided to those in the wedding (attendants, parents, and grandparents, and officiant if you chose).  They are not necessary for other famliy members.  Some people like to denote them as family and provide flowers, but you don’t have to (we aren’t).  Whoever is paying for the flowers should have the final say in if they want to do the extras or not.  But it’s not customary or traditional to do so.

We don’t have any siblings as part of our wedding party. It was too hard to pick some and not the others. We are close with our siblings and they have been instrumental with helping out. We are giving them flowers to wear on the big day because it feels like a good way to recognize them and let people know they were a big part of everything.

It sounds like they are expecting flowers and feel like they deserve automatic recognition. It doesn’t sound like they have done much to help or be supportive. Yet they want extra recognition? I vote no flowers for them.

I think the best is to just leave it to parents grandparents and the wedding party. Even though it was very nice it was really awkward that my cousin gave me flowers to wear for just designing the invites.
