I’m going to a celebration of life service for my favorite grade school teacher who passed away recently. It is being held at my grade school, I don’t know if it’s indoor or outdoor on the field because it didn’t specify. I have a feeling it would have to be outside on the field as the multi-purpose room is being used for a salad/dessert reception afterwards, and it wouldn’t be big enough to accommodate the large crowd expected, anyway.
What is the dress code for such an event? I’ve never been to this kind of service, I’ve only ever been to funerals at churches. I’m really hoping it’s not a dress-up occasion, since I have very limited dress wear (even limited dressy-casual), it’s outdoors in the heat, and plus we all have to walk a distance to get to the school since parking is awful in that area. My teacher was definitely a casual guy too, if that makes a difference.
I’m thinking about wearing a blouse, jeans, and non-sneakers. Is this appropriate for this kind of event?
