[quote=Mikenamy01]Thanks - someone told me that red was an appropriate/incouraged color to wear and I didn’t know if I was supposed to wear red in my tie or something. Sounded kinda strange to me as I’ve always considered red as specifically not a color to wear. Any truth to wearing red or should I correct my friend on their choice?
Did you see “My Big Fat Greek Wedding?” Remember when Toula’s brothers told the groom how to say in Greek, “Let’s go into the house!”? Telling someone to wear red at a funeral would be the equivalent.
Wardrobe decorum at funerals is pretty loose these days, except maybe on Park Avenue. If you wear a black suit, you are likely to be dressed in deeper mourning than the principal mourners. It’s more a sociological thing than a religious thing.
