Your choice can be a dress, skirt suits, trouser suits or coordinates. You can mix and match your outfits to suit your taste, but be aware that your hemlines must be low to make your outfit suitable for the church environment. The vicar or the pastor is not interested in your sexy outfit, but the focus is on the child being christened.
