I'm going to a christening on Sunday and have no idea what to wear!? I usually have it all planned ages in advance but been so busy lately its crept up on me!

I havent been to a christening for years and years so abit unsure what the etiquette is for christenings? Is it like weddings?

Also need to dress the girls but im sure I can find something for them amongst their hundreds of dresses!

Trouble is I have NO time to go get anything, need to make a cake this afternoon for mums 60th party tomorrow that's miles away!- Oh and supervise 2 toddlers!
If anything then its order from NEXT for next day delivery.

Size 12/14

think long or 3/4 sleeves

budget of about £40?

Thing is I don't really want to be 'too' dressed up as straight after we are heading out for DH's Nans birthday meal where I know BIL and wife will be in jeans. Dont want to look silly IYKWIM.

How about:




Order by 6pm and they will do next day delivery.

Oh I like the 2nd one but fear my flabby tummy wouldnt! Good to know they do next day delivery too!

Would black trousers and a nice top be ok do you think? Are christenings a very dressy affair? I was a child the last time I went to a christening!

I think black trousers could be a bit officey. What kind?

How about this top?

In my experience christening are not super dressy affairs, definitely not like a wedding. Dressing smartly is the norm, rather than in a showy/glam way. Trousers and top would be completely fine. Men usually wear collar and tie to these things - if that gives you a guide.

Really just being there and making a fuss of the baby afterwards is what counts.
