At the end of October my husband and I are attending the christening of his 7 month old cousin and he is going to be Godfather. This is the first “family event” that we will have attended together as a married couple and I feel that as the newest member and wife of Godfather, I need to have an appropriate outfit. I have already planned on getting a new outfit as I am also attending a civil ceremony in November and I have dropped a dress size so need something anyway.
If anyone has any suggestions on what to look for would be lovely.

So I just Googled, “What to wear to a Christening,” and I think pretty much every example in google images is ridiculous. They’re all either very informal or super “sexy” aka trashy. Who wears a skin-tight dress to a Christening??
I went to a baptism service at a Lutheran church in August, and I wore pants, a nice top, a necklace, my hair down, and flats. I was dressed similarly to everyone else.
For a Catholic ceremony…I would probably hide, but I don’t know. Not something like this:
A site called the fashion police says these outfits are okay, but I think they all look like they’re going to nightclubs with those shoes on…
Mary’s always stylish, of course:

When my Godson was Christened a few weeks ago, I work a coral, sleevless, A-line dress that came to the knee and some tan espadrilles. FI (bf @ the time) wore an oxford, tan slacks, and a tie. I know some churches look down on women wearing pants (I know I know…but I think you’re trying to fit in) so I would wear a modest dress if it’s a traditional congregation.

i suggest dressing on the modest side. i think pants would ok, but stay away from denim. keep dresses/skirts around knee length. sleeveless tops are fine, but your back and shoulders should be covered (so no halters, spaghetti strap, etc). when i was growing up those are the rules that were enforced (by my mom) for dressing for anything at a church and i still follow them.
