What To Wear To A Christening In Autumn

Whether you have attended a christening or baptism before or not, the basic requirement for what to wear to a christening in autumn is to dress appropriately without showing too much flesh. Christening is somewhat a formal occasion and takes place mostly inside a church. Depending on your status, for example if you are a royal, the ceremony can be elaborate. Otherwise, it is a church event that is similar to getting married in a church; but less glamorous to attend if you are a guest.

Check out some of my picks for this autumn, they are cheap and affordable without breaking the bank:

This satin stripped dress is superb to wear because the colour is soft and the prints denotes autumn season; in a vibrant red and black leaf pattern, with shiny golden thread along the bias lines of the dress . This is the appropriate dress to wear as a guest to a church baptism because the length is below the knees. Though it is short-sleeved, you can either wear a blazer or a coverup over it.

Inspired by vintage, this Fever aubin jersey dress is a must-have for the season. Yes, you can wear an outfit with flower on it, even in autumn. However, in response to a question asked by someone “can a baptism outfit have a flower print”? If this question relates to the baby’s outfit, then it will be a personal choice if you want your baby’s outfit to have flowers or not. Mind you, the baby’s dress doesn’t have to be a full long dress. Many years ago, my daughter’s christening dress had flowers on it, and it was not a full gown. It was a lovely dress nonetheless. This dress is also available to buy from Amazon.co.uk
