With the world easing back into a new ‘normal’ this year, our social calendars are already starting to fill up with dates and events that are long overdue. Weddings, christenings, and baby naming ceremonies are all catching up. Whilst most of us know the general dress codes of weddings, it can sometimes be a little more complicated when it comes to christenings and baby naming ceremonies.
Luckily you don’t need to worry anymore! We’ve got all the tall christening outfit inspiration you need right here. From FAQs to do’s and don’ts, we have put together the essential guide on what to wear to a christening.
Tips for Christening Outfits
- Colours: Deciding what to wear to a christening can be difficult, but don’t limit your wardrobe even more by cutting out colours. Unlike at weddings, it’s completely appropriate to wear white and even black, just as long as your outfit goes with the whole feel of the day.
- Denim: Depending on the tone of the event and how strict the parents are hosting, jeans can sometimes be appropriate even if they are a bit informal. However, we definitely recommend keeping ripped and baggy boyfriend jeans firmly away from the church as these will seem more casual than you might intend.
- Skirt/Dress Length: It may seem obvious but we recommend dresses and skirts hem lines falling at knee length and below, anything shorter could be deemed inappropriate especially in a church. If you do decide to go shorter we recommend pairing with some high denier tights to go with your outfit.

Best Footwear for a Christening Guest
What footwear you choose to wear with your outfit can really impact the day you have.
