I am feeling quite a bit of pressure from both sets of parents to do something “nice” (whatever that means) I guess for the sake of appearances. I feel like we could accomplish “nice” without all the trappings but I am wondering if I will regret not really making the most of the occasion, if that makes any sense. I feel like the hardest part of this process is dealing with other people’s expectations.

Sleeveless is perfectly ok so long as you have an equally conservative (black/gray/navy/dark cranberry even, solid colored) cardigan or blazer. Just don’t go bare-armed into the funeral home or place of worship. That’s all.

Signed,
I don’t own a single dress with sleeves, and I’ve been to many conservative, traditional funerals for my extended family and network and done just fine.

I don’t be think people would be reacting the same way if this was a white Christian man. I can’t really articulate why, I just have a hard time believing there aren’t racial/ethnic issues in play.
