    My boyfriends grandmother just passed away a few days ago and his mother wants me to go to the funeral. I've never been to a funeral before and I was wondering if I'm supposed to wear black or color, or what? I have no idea how to dress for this. And I don't want to be dressed in a way that the whole family is going to look at me funny or dislike me.

    Sorry that this is kind of an odd question. Any suggestions are welcomed!
    Thanks in advancee.

    Ask the family - it depends. My Dad did NOT want black or white and wanted his funeral to be a celebration of his life.

    His family will know. We have no way of knowing.
