What to wear to a christening as godmother

It can sometimes be a challenge to find the right outfit for a christening, especially if you’re going to be the godmother. To be chosen by your friend or family member to be a godparent to their child is a huge honour, so it is important that you make an effort with your appearance on the day. The good news is that, unlike a wedding, christenings don’t have as many clothing rules and etiquette to follow. So you can pretty much get as creative as you like with your outfit - unless a dress code has been specified on your invitation, of course. 

But if you’re sitting there wondering what to wear to a Christening as a godmother then our fashion experts here at NADINE MERABI have put together some of the hottest Christening trends for this year to make sure you look and dress the part.

What do godmothers wear to a christening?

The options are endless when it comes to christening guest outfits and pretty much anything goes with the type of outfit you could wear. But if you’re looking for more guidance then here are a few christening outfit staples that are sure to make you look and feel great. 

A dress

You can’t go wrong when it comes to wearing a dress to a christening. They’re such an easy choice as you have so many different types of dresses to choose from. Whether you prefer a maxi or a midi, you can style it in the correct way to make it look perfect for a christening. 

For example, this NYLA white dress is perfect if you want to keep the colours of your outfit muted while still making a big impression. It is the perfect combination of glamour and elegance and with its midi length and no sleeves, you can stay cool if it's a warm day. It features an all-over sequin embellishment which makes you stand out from the crowd and a smart V neckline.

When it comes to accessories with this dress we recommend that you keep it simple with muted extras, such as a nude or white bag and plain block heels. 

A smart suit

However, if you’re the kind of person who usually wears a dress to a special occasion then now is the perfect time to branch out and try something different. A smart suit has become an increasingly popular christening outfit for godmothers as a two-piece offers a sleek and contemporary look that will keep you cool and comfortable all day. 

It is entirely up to you whether you decide to go for a colour blazer and pants combination or want to keep it traditional with a white smart suit. Either way, you can enjoy the elegant and feminine looks of wide-leg pants that are super comfortable and a popular type of occasionwear for this year. 

For example, the CHARLOTTE white blazer and white trousers offer a sophisticated look that can be worn either together or styled separately. That means that you will get plenty of wear out of this outfit after the christening. Style with a high pony and a red lip and you’re ready for your godmother duties.

A chic jumpsuit

If you’re torn between wearing a dress or a suit to a christening then why not go for the combination of the two and wear a chic jumpsuit? They’re such a good option if you want to look effortlessly stylish and are also comfortable to wear throughout the ceremony and the after-party. Here at NADINE MERABI, we have a range of jumpsuits for you to choose from. 

If you’re looking for a jumpsuit that is extra special, as this is a special day of course, then we would recommend the MICHAELA purple jumpsuit. With its embroidered fabric, mixed sequins and purple feather detailing to the cuffs, you’re going to stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons.

For accessories be sure to keep it simple with a white clutch bag and white heels as your jumpsuit is the main focus of your outfit.

Comfortable shoes

One of the biggest tips we can give you when it comes to what to wear to a christening as a godmother is; comfortable shoes! 

You will likely spend a huge part of your day running around helping the parents, being involved in the ceremony or maybe even chasing little ones. So you want to make sure that you have comfortable shoes that you can last all day and night in. 

Even if you think that heels look best with your outfit choice but you aren’t sure how long they will last before they start to hurt your feet, then we recommend you pop a pair of flats in your bag for after the ceremony. You will be grateful you did!
