    Modest, but “fun.” Nothing sleeveless, too short or too low cut. Something similar to what you would wear to an afternoon wedding.

    Wear something comfortable, tasteful and dressy. No jeans! Business casual with a bit of flare is always safe. Think of how you might want a friend to dress for one of your family member’s special occasion. Wear comfortable shoes as there might be dancing!

    I agree with gerdi … something modest and “church/synagogue” appropriate.

    That being said, is there a party or reception afterwards? If so you might consider something sleeveless you can put a shrug, sweater or jacket over at the service but remove later.
