What to wear to a funeral

I have a funeral to go to in a week (my grandma's) and I plan on wearing a black suit with white shirt, but I'm not sure what color tie. Here are the options:

Light Blue
Dark Blue
Charcoal
Black

Oh and does anyone have a black tie I can borrow?

Thanks guys, but I was kidding about borrowing the black tie I have one. I think I'll go with that just to play it safe.

It's doesn't matter on the tie....a suit is professional/respectful way to go.

I had people showing up in jeans/polo shirt at my Dad's funeral last year.....you look like a douchebag doing that.

The Charcoal would also be ok. You don't want to look like MIB, and it is still a color of mourning.Sorry for you loss.

Wakes and funerals are quite casual nowadays. But, I guess family traditions will dictate the dress code. Black suit, go with a pale colored tie with a small print if you don't want to look like a Blues Brother.
