Hi all,
Going to a christening today.
I'm wearing a black/white polka wrap dress and black ballet pumps (flats as 7 months preg and can't walk in heels).
I brought a black mini stachel from accessorize thinking it would look ok but looks like I'm off to the office so my choices are a black patent clutch -looks ok but outfit is all black and clutch keeping hold of toddler not practical or I have a little bright yellow mini stachel which I think looks good with outfit but worried maybe too casual for christening?
What do you think?

Yellow satchel.

Christening are Sunday best not full-on occasion dress-up.

I don't think clothes and accessories are as important at christenings as they are at weddings. As a church goer I have witnessed many christenings and the christening party always look far more dressed up than the congregation.
Just take whichever bag you want to. No-one is going to judge you.

It's a christening. Not a wedding

Agree with bunny. Overdressed christening attendees stand out as SO unused to church.

Thanks all smile I'm sorted then.
I'd told DH to wear his suit with bright tie now thinking that's too overdressed or is that ok?

And while I've got your help- I'm wearing same outfit to wedding in 2 weeks- register office wedding with relaxed reception (no top table, speeches etc).
Can I wear the black flats again and just get a bright dressy clutch or do I need coloured different shoes too?

Suit and tie for Christening is perfect.

If you are pregnant stick with the flats and be comfy - weddings involve lots of standing around.

Dh now thinking shirt and trousers better? Is this ok
