    Default What to wear to a funeral?!

    Help!

    My dear Gran has just passed away and I have no idea what to wear to her funeral. I struggle with funeral attire at the best of times but I will be 36 weeks pregnant so nothing fits me. Does anybody have any suggestions?
    Also it will be about 30 degrees on the day, I think I may have found it easier to dress if it was cooler.

    I'm very sorry for your loss.

    Do you have some black maternity pants or leggings? Either of those with a loose, dark top might suffice. A loose fitting, dark colored dress would be fine too.

    Failing that, I doubt anyone will be judging you for what you wear on the day hon. The main thing is that you are as comfortable as you can be, and I think as long as you avoid cheery colors you should be fine.

    So sorry @Em9.
    I had a funeral when I was 34 weeks pregnant and wore a black dress that wasn't maternity it was just a flowy knee length sleeveless dress I had. As @Blossom74 says black leggings or pants that you can perhaps hold up with a hair tie through the button hole and then around the button iykwim? Then a longer top over to hide that. Even if you could buy a Kmart oversized black t-shirt and wear with leggings or harem pants.
    I don't think (hope) anyone would be judging you on your funeral attire when you've got a big bump happening.

    My FIL passed away when I was 32 weeks pregnant and I just wore a black stretchy dress. I wore heels but left a pair of flats in the car. As PP's have said I don't think anyone will judge when you're that far along

    Hugs, it's hard xx

    Could you wear her favourite colour? That way you can just say that you've dressed that way for her. For my grandfather's funeral we all wore colour, my grandmother insisted that she didn't want to see a sea of black and she demands that we won't wear black to her funeral.

    I agree with @Pcos30 I would wear her favourite colour. When my late granny passed as I called her I wore a dress that was filled colours and had butterfly's all over it she also loved the dress and didn't want anyone to wear black either

    a lot of people dont wear black these days. Its perfectly acceptable to wear any colour you like ... and celebrate her life

    Thank you for you're help everyone. I went and bought a dress that is black with a floral print on it, midi length so am happy with it. It had two splits up the front of it that I got sewn together as my bump was making them sit a bit too high. The joys of buying normal clothes when this pregnant but atleast I'll be able to wear it again
