  • I don't think it matters what color you wear as long as you look presentable. You're going to pay you repects and that's all that matters.

  • I think they wear that as a celebration of life. White and creme are colors of peace.

  • I agree with usmc0351wife!! White and Creme are very Peaceful Colors! I would want my friends & family to come in Bright Beautiful Colors!

  • Hmmmm....I guess I'm traditional. I'd stick with black or navy. Even if YOU are comfortable in cream, why upset the old ladies there by wearing something non-traditional.
