Attire?

Do you think any of these dresses are appropriate for the funeral? (These are the ones I have, not that I think would necessarily be the best choices for a somber occasion...) I'm not sure if I need to go get a black maternity dress....




I think I'll bring the blue one and the brown one and see what people think- my mom said that I shouldn't be afraid to wear color- my grandma loved flowers- but I don't want to be "that person" with the flashy outfit at the funeral....

Maybe the last one.

The last one would seem the most appropriate.

I agree, the last one is prob best. I don't see a reason to go out and buy an all black one though.

Meg said...

Definately not the red.

I like the last one as well. Do you have a little black sweater to go over maybe? I have a little shoulder shrug thingy that is cool enough for summers that I use to fancy up spaghetti strap dresses...

I'd say the last one or the red one. Really though, it depends on the formality of the funeral - some funerals are more of a "celebration of life" - and honestly, any of the dresses would be fine then!

Yeah, I agree with everyone... the last one definitely seems the best. All of them are cute. With a shrug or something they'd all potentially work. I definitely wouldn't go and buy a black one. In fact, for my dad's funeral all I could find at the store was all black and I felt SO out of place in it, like I was trying too hard to be somber. Haha. I guess you can't win.

I think the last one is probably the most appropriate. Don't go out & buy a black dress, I mean if you want to sure...but the last one is a good choice.

I was saddened to read about your grandma. My thoughts are with you and your family.

I am so sorry about your grandmother. I'm going to go complete opposite of everyone else and say the blue flowered one. At first I thought last one, but I think you're mom is right. If your grandmother liked flowers it seems appropriate. I know it's cheerful, which is opposite a funeral but it should be a celebration of her life. But I would bring both and get opinions.

So sorry for your loss. I think the last one is appropriate but if your grandma loved flowers, that dress would be fitting too. Thinking of you.

I think any of them would be fine. I rarely wear black to funerals anymore.
