I'm old so I still wear mostly dark colored dress pants and blouse or skirt/dress, but I see people dressed in jeans, shorts, and flip flops all the time here. It doesn't seem to bother anyone and it doesn't bother me.

You should dress up to show respect to the dead.

It depends a lot on the culture and location, and possibly the religion. Is there a service in church or synagogue, at the funeral home, or graveside?

More info is needed to answer the your question.

I'm not sure what you mean by "super nice", but if I said "church clothes" or "Sunday best" would you know what I mean? Preferably dark colors.

Unless the funeral is Jewish orthodox, that's a different deal.

For immediate family I wear a dark colored dress. For friend's I wear black slacks, a nice blouse, and sandals.

Last funeral I went to I wore a dark skirt & blouse. The one before that, I wore a dark purple, floral print dress.

When I die, I want people to wear pink clothes to my funeral. I want it to be a party atmosphere. Not something somber & depressing with dark clothes, sad faces, & crying people. I want smiles & laughter.
