Funeral attire that isn't black?

Hello all,

Got a funeral to go to this week and just been told this afternoon that the dress code is "nothing black".

Pretty much everything "smart" I own is black, so I need to go shopping tomorrow. I'm guessing the other usual funeral guidelines would still apply? Would you say? Knee length and shoulders covered?

Also, would you still go for muted colours? I don't have very much to spend at all, probably max £25. Would something's be like this be acceptable?

I went to a funeral with a 'no black' dress code recently - there were all sorts of outfits in varying levels of brightness. I wore a patterned skirt with smart boots and and a duck egg blue jumper - so not bright but colourful. It was fine and I felt it was just right. There were others there in brighter tones but nobody was really smartly/formally dressed.
