How to dress for a baptism?

The ideal christening outfit for mums

Along with the child, the parents take center stage during a baptism. So don't skip any details! If you want to be a princess for a day, nothing prevents you from dressing in a coordinated way with your child. If wearing a white piece is a tradition for the mother during the baptism, avoid however the total white look, too connoted marriage. If you like very light colors, prefer off-white or ecru. Depending on your style, you can turn to a cocktail dress, a chic suit or flowing pants combined with a bustier. In terms of material, lace, silk or organza will dress you with elegance. Are you flirtatious? The christening ceremony is an opportunity to wear your best celebrity hats:take advantage of it!

If you are invited to the ceremony

As a guest, unless you are the godmother (in which case, you can dress like the mother), the objective is not to overshadow the parents and the child. It is therefore necessary to find an elegant outfit, but rather sober. Also ask about the style of ceremony:if the atmosphere is relaxed like a birthday party at home, you can keep it simpler than for a reception in a formal place. If you hesitate between two outfits, always opt for the most elegant:it is better to be too well dressed than too neglected. Of course, avoid plunging necklines and mini-skirts, which are unsuitable for a solemn ceremony. If in doubt, bet on a little plain black or pastel dress worn with pumps. If you want to accessorize your outfit, forget the hats, and bet instead on a pretty scarf worn on the shoulders or on a fancy necklace.
