Proper Attire For A Funeral


If you had a loved one that had passed, and we are now at the funeral and I walk in wearing a tank top too tight showing all of my tattoos and in shorts that are way too small for me, how would that make you feel? You’d be offended, right? Right. I know for a fact if someone wore something like that to my loved ones funeral I’d be highly peeved and disrespected. But a lot of people don’t know what to actually wear that is considered appropriate.

what to wear:

Wear something that covers all of your skin, you’re going to a funeral, not a bar. The last thing you need is to try and look sexy for a corpse.

Wear darker colors. Doesn’t mean you have to be in all black. Colors like dark greens, navy blues, plum purples, etc are acceptable. If you’re going to wear a bright color, don’t wear too much of it unless stated otherwise.

Nothing too flashy. Once again, this isn’t about you.

Its better if you do not wear heels, no one wants to hear you clacking your stilettos all around the funeral home. If you must wear heels, nothing higher than 2-3″

Nothing, and I repeat, NOTHING TOO TIGHT. You want to be able to breathe and relax and also, of course, not pop someone’s eye out because you decided you wanted to sit down.

Be sure to be formal unless stated otherwise.

So I’ve given you the run down, and hopefully you have an imagination to still make an outfit work. The reason being why we must dress nice is because when you’re honoring someone’s life, that isn’t taken lightly. When we honor our troops, do you see how they are dressed? In a perfect uniform where not even a stitch is out of place. Now we don’t have to be that dressed, but you get the idea. Besides, the whole point in going to a funeral is to pay respects to the deceased and beloved family.

Why do we have funerals?

That’s a really good question. When someone that you love dies, you need closure. No telling what your last words them may have been, but I’m sure for some of you it wasn’t too nice. We need closure because we need to know that our loved one is going to a better place. That they are no longer suffering. That they are free. And having a funeral is one of the more traditional ways to do it.

I hope this has helped you, as sometimes not everyone has the advantage as others to gain knowledge in there own home.
