Are you supposed to wear black to a funeral?
January 24, 2014 at 11:52 PM
My grandma's funeral is tomorrow and I don't really have anything black to wear that is nice-looking and warm. How important is it really that you wear black to a funeral? Is it a big deal?

     No. Just dress nice. I am wearing a dark pink dress shirt and black slacks to my grandma's funeral tomorrow.

    You dont have too. I would wear her favorite color if you have something like that to wear. Depending on if the funeral is inside or outside wear what you will becomfortable in.

    I always have. I froze my ass off at the most recent funeral though. I would suggest any dark clothes that are warm.

    Depends on what country you live.

    Black or dark gray if you can. My BFF wore a dark blue to my dad's funeral a few months ago and stood out. Her dress was cut but she was self-conscious about how much she stood out.

    not really, heck white is considered the funeral colors of the Chinese.  Some people dont want people to wear black but a dark color is generally preferable.

    I'm sorry for your loss.  I don't think that black is necessary.  I would just wear something nice, like something you could wear in a nice office without looking out of place.

    Navy Blue will work too. Just something dark & not frilly.
