What is the appropriate attire for a woman to wear to a funeral or memorial service?
My mother died in February; we are finally having a memorial service in our hometown church in August. I was under the impression that a conservative, dark colored dress/skirt/suit would be the thing to wear.
So far the only dress I have found that I like is dark brown, sleeveless (but not strappy) with small cream colored flowers embroidered here and there on it. DH thinks it's not somber enough. I'm going to poll some friends but wanted your advice as well.
