When my Mum in law passed we went to the funeral to celebrate her life and a lot of us didn't wear black. It tended to be the older generation that wore black. Wear what you feel comfortable in , your Uncle would appreciate you being there not what you looked like. Take care.

I agree with Ellen. Being there is more important than what you wear ((hugs))

did he have a favourite color or had you worn something before he particularly commented on as liking on you?

I wore black trousers which had a red pinstripe and a red top to my Dad's and just about everyone else mixed and matched brighter coloured clothes a darker colour.

I doubt anything would be said about whatever you decide to wear, just being with your family is the most important thing at a time like this.

i went to a funeral in december it was stricktly no black, so i wore my blue jeans and a white shirt.
I agree with ellen it was the older people who went against the wishes of my dead cousin and wore black, but out of 80 people well over half wore bright coulors.
There was also a ban on crying so it was a FUNeral they way my cousin wanted it, remembering all the happy and fun memories it was the happiest funeral i've ever been to.

Sam you'll find something xxx

Quatermass - i meant that wearing Black to a funeral is outdated now!!!!
- Not wearing black normally - to be honest i have all black shoes, bags and trousers.
Although having said that a lot of the older people still see it as respect to wear black, and close your curtains as the hearse goes by.
The younger generation dont really mind what you were or what you do as long as you are there.
