What to Wear to a Buddhist Funeral in China

What to Wear to a Buddhist Funeral in China

-Dark clothing is not required at a Buddhist funeral, though the color red should be avoided as it is regarded as a sign of disrespect at a funeral. White is the color of mourning in Buddhism, consequently family members will wear white clothing. Non-family members should avoid wearing white, the way one would avoid wearing white at a Western wedding.

-If the funeral takes place in a temple, attendees will be required to remove footwear. Presentable socks, therefore, should be worn.
