My friend at school just died in a car accident last Saturday. It's also on the newspaper. And I have to go to her funeral ( I am not sure if it's call funeral) at the church on this Friday but I am not sure what color shirt should I wear on that day? Must be all black only or can be white or grey? As for Thai traditional we can wear black white or grey to the funeral .. but this is British culture, so I am not sure if I could wear white or grey.

As the ceremony is in Thailand, you could of course wear Thai traditional. But if you want to show some extra respect to your friend's culture, I would suggest you wear decent colors, such as grey or black and I would not suggest white. My condolences!

Yes you can wear trousers (pants) to a funeral. In Britain it is normal to wear black or dark grey to a funeral., HOWEVER, there is an increasing trend for a funeral to more celebrate someone' life than to mourn their death. I have been to 2 funerals in the last year or 2 where everyone dressed as brightly as possible to remember the person as they were alive.

Would be worth your while to talk to your friend's family and friends and see what they are wearing. Otherwise, a black trouser suit with white blouse would be traditional and respectful.

Sorry to hear you have lost a friend

Agree about the change in focus from mourning to celebrating but I still tend to go with black as a matter of respect. You can still celebrate their life if that is the format of the funeral but black is a safe color because it is both respectful and you can't go too far wrong wearing black.

Black suit, white shirt.

Some people, if they don't have black, wear dark grey or maybe even dark blue (think sombre colours), and then wear a black armband as a sign of respect.

When I have been to funerals, its been black suit, white shirt, black tie.

things went well today and people at the church were not really wear black .... many of them wore colorful dress with the flower print ... ... and one of them wore red trousers... (o_O)

This is my first time go to different culture funeral ... after the church they went to the bar ... for drinks... of course I joined them ...

it's quite different from Thai funeral ... I saw their tears but in the same time I also saw the smile on their faces.

Sort of reflects what I mentioned. A lot of funerals here are moving away from the more sombre mood and are celebrating the person's life. The 2 friends I have lost in last 2 years would definitely have appreciated the colour more!

Glad it went as well as it could
