The Question Club
One of the regulars at my boyfriend's work has passed away. I didn't know him very well, but I have met him a few times. He was a fun-loving, light-hearted man; always cracking jokes and what not. My boyfriend asked me to come to the funeral, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what to wear, and my boyfriend isn't being very helpful: "wear whatever!". There isn't really anyone else I can ask, because I don't know the family all that well, and any mutual acquaintances aren't going to be there.
The funeral is on Friday, at 2 PM. The obituary didn't mention the word "funeral," but instead called it "a celebration of his life." I'm planning on wearing a dress, and I'm almost positive black would be out of place at this particular funeral. What colours would be appropriate for an afternoon celebration of life? Any links to dresses would be greatly appreciated! I don't have any good pictures of me to show y'all, but here is one that kind of shows my colouring and body shape.
I know I'm seriously over-thinking this, but I was very overdressed at the last funeral I went to and felt very uncomfortable the entire time (ironically, it was my boyfriend's grandfather's funeral - my boyfriend failed to mention that nobody would be wearing black!).
