How do you dress for a christening?
Last Updated: 2nd April, 2020
- Never wear black - it's not a funeral.
- Grey is a great colour - go for a wool or Prince Of Wales check.
- Navy is also a good option - nothing too over the top.
- In summer, go for a lighter coloured suit - stone or tan is always good and you don't need to wear a tie.

White dresses are ideal for baptisms, but—location permitting—feel free to switch things up with a pair of statement kicks. Keep a cardigan on hand, just in case. Don't be afraid to add a pop of color to neutral-hued dress. Just like at weddings, pastel-colored dresses can be worn at baptisms.

What do you wear to autumn christening?
Most christenings take place between spring and autumn, so you can opt for floaty dresses, lightweight skirts and linen suits. If you're invited to a christening at a church, you should cover your shoulders for traditional reasons, but also to keep warm as they can be extra draughty too.
