What to wear to a christening

Christenings are a beautiful occasion where friends and family can come together to celebrate an important step in a child’s life. You may think that dressing for a christening is similar to a wedding in that you must dress up smart and enjoy a party after the main ceremony. However, there is a little bit more of a grey area when it comes to christenings. Fortunately for you, NADINE MERABI has all the answers you need!

What to wear at a christening

Christenings are quite straightforward in terms of clothing choices. It’s a special occasion for the family whose child has been accepted into their local church, so it’s advised that you dress up well for the event. At NADINE MERABI, we have a wide range of christening guest outfits for you to choose from, including dresses, jumpsuits, skirts and more.


For men, figuring out what to wear to a christening is fairly simple. A smart shirt with a pair of smart trousers or jeans normally does the trick. But for women, it’s much more difficult. Often, there isn’t a dress code, so choosing what to wear for a christening is tricky. Fortunately, we’ve got some fantastic occasionwear tips for you.


If you’re struggling to work out what to wear to a christening, the easy decision is always a dress and, luckily for you, we have lots of them at NADINE MERABI. 


The first dress that springs to mind for a christening is the delightful OLIVIA mint dress. This stunning dress is lined with our exclusive satin and has a corset bodice that cinches in your waist, providing a close fit that enhances your figure. It’s also pleated with layers of mesh underneath from the waist, creating a show-stopping look that’s made to mesmerise.


Another stunning number that you could choose to wear to a christening is the VICTORIA hot pink dress. This fabulous dress incorporates fairytale finishes and detailing and is designed from an exclusive crepe fabric with boning in the bodice. This provides a fitted look that contours and sculpts your silhouette.

VICTORIA also features a beautifully-designed bow detailing to the shoulders and is finished with an invisible zip for a sleek finish. This understated and classy dress would be a perfect choice if you’re wondering what to wear for a christening.


Jumpsuits are fantastic choices for social occasions because they’re suitable for almost any event. Whether you’re heading to a wedding, a birthday party, or a christening, a jumpsuit is a suitable choice of clothing.




With that in mind, we think you should consider the AMELIA pink jumpsuit for the next christening you’re attending. This fitted jumpsuit has a feather trim detailing on the sleeves and an embellished beaded top. The contrast lining on the top provides coverage, whilst accentuating the embellished intricate beading. 


Plus, the trousers are made from MERABI’s exclusive crepe fabric and are fully lined for a smooth and comfortable fit. As an added feature, the AMELIA jumpsuit looks great with or without the included belt.


Another jumpsuit to consider if you’re planning what to wear to a christening is the ARIANA blue jumpsuit. This mesmerising jumpsuit is made from embellished beaded sequins and comes complete with luxurious crepe-flared trousers. Detailed with our signature feather-trimmed cuffs, this jumpsuit creates a figure-flattering look.

Other options

Other options for what to wear at a christening include skirts matched with tops at NADINE MERABI. For example, our gorgeous MIA blue skirt is a perfect match for the NICOLE blue top. Light blue is a fashionable colour and is perfect for wearing to a christening.

Another skirt you could wear is the SARA white skirt. Wearing this with the TAYLOR white shirt can give you the clean look you’re aiming for. Plus, you can get away with all white at a christening, unlike weddings!
