    So my grandads funeral is next monday. I've never ever been to a funeral before, have no idea how they work or anything.

    We're all on strict orders NOT to wear anything overly black or formal ( black suits ect), he wants people to wear what they feel comfortable in. All the men have been ordered to wear birmingham city football shirts lol.

    I have no idea what to wear? my mum just said to go in my casual jeans and a top, but i can't turn up to a funeral in a pair of jeans and a top!

    I was thinking maybe a dress or something? I really don't know what to wear?

    Anyone got any ideas? Im not sure if i would of had the baby by then so im not buying the outfit untill thelast minute. If anyone has any suggestions of things that arn't too formal but not too everydayish either.. id really appreciate it!

    I'd say smart trousers and a colourful top TBH - unless you would usually wear jeans or something - I think the suggestion is that you go as you, not a dressed up you?? If that makes sense?
