DH, DD and I have been asked to a friends DSs christening. DD is 18mo, I am 16wks pg and will be 19wks for the christening.
What should I put DD in for the christening? Invite says "Cordially invited to" insert info about christening "and afterwards for champagne and luncheon at" insert name of posh residence. If I have to dress her nicely for church (no idea, not a churchgoer) can I change her later in the day or should I be going for practical and pretty combined?
Also what can I wear? I have no mat dresses and am currently in normal tops and mat trousers - don't own a mat skirt. I might eb in mat tops by then, don't know though - am not 'growing' much at the mo. Do I need to get a dress? Or can I get away with trousers, a smart top, a jacket and nice shoes?
Yes, nice trousers and smart top will be fine for you. Christening is only semi formal attire IME - church wear Went to a christening recently, followed by meal in nice hotel, and there was a good mix of different clothes.
Up to you for DD - something pretty and nice, but could be practical wear too. And yes, can definitely change. I'd be tempted to go for a pretty summery dress - jut because I love girly little dresses
