I think black is always a safe bet. You could always pair it with brighter accesories if you worry about it being too dark.

Is it something you could wear a colorful cardigan or fun accessories with?  Black wouldn’t be my first choice for a baptism, especially if you are a god parent but black can be easily jazzed up with accessories.

hikingbride :  Gotcha.  In that case, I would probably just wear the black dress.  I’m a cardigan queen so that is my default to add to an outfit if I want to change it up.  It does not make sense, in my opinion, to go out and buy something specific for the occasion especially if you are in the middle of losing weight.  Save your money and buy something you LOVE when you’re ready.

hikingbride :  I think your black dress will be fine! I’m also the godmother in a baptism coming up and I have several friends on Facebook who have posted pictures of their family at baptisms. One of the colors a lot of people wore were black. My own sister is the mother of the baby and she’s wearing black lol. Sometimes people get too hung up on different colors having different meanings, but I say if it looks good, wear it!

Black is timeless and always classy in my opinion!

hikingbride :  As much as I love black dresses – they can be so elegant – I just can’t see a black dress as a good option for a baptism. You still have time to consider other alternatives within a reasonable price. The dress below, for example, is from Target, at $29.99:

Queen of wearing BlacK!!!! BUT I wouldn’t wear an A black dress to a baptism. Can you go to a local thrift store and find a dress or outfit? I am not saying to spend a lot of money but I’m sure you can find something a little brighter for the occasion

I don’t think it’s a problem to wear black. Could you get a colourful scarf to brighten it up and still wear after further weightloss?
