First I am very sorry for your loss.

Either outfit sounds appropriate. What would you wear if the funeral was at a Methodist Church? It isn’t any different. Pants are completely acceptable. As long as your outfit is modest and tasteful you should be fine.

@kansas_nurse:  I’m sorry for you loss. As for your question, I’d wear the black dress, and you can pair it with a black cardigan if your worried about modesty. However, I don’t think the dress by itself sounds inappropriate for a funeral. Be sure to stay hydrated day of.

Will there be a viewing?  Because I think either outfit would be fine for the mass/funeral.  I wore a brown skirt and off white sweater when my gramma passed away so don’t worry about the grey pants.

I’m sorry you are going through this. Attire varies based on parrish, but I would say either outfit sounds perfectly fine. Perhaps you could wear one to the wake and one to the funeral itself.

Sorry to hear about your grandma. My fiancé is catholic and his grandpa passed away last month I was in a similar situation. I wore a black knee length dress (think Audrey Hepburn dress), black panty hose, black closed toe pumps, and a black cardigan to cover my arms. Oh and I wore a string off pearls cause I felt way too black ya know? I think both of your outfits sound appropriate, wear the one you’re more comfortable in

Either would be fine. Pants are 100% fine in a Catholic church for a woman to wear. At my grandfather’s funeral only my grandmother and I were in dresses. This is especially true for a winter funeral.

Our rule (ie my grandmother’s rule for her family) is don’t wear all back (that is for her closest kin, so her husband or children), cover your legs to the knees and make sure you can’t see your underwear lines in your pants or skirt, and cover all cleavage and your shoulders. 

If my grandmother passed away today, I woud probably wear a black and white tweed skirt with stockings or black pants, an olive green tank top, and a black sweater.
