Christenings – Dresses for a Formal Christening – Mother, Grandmother, God Parent

When attending a Christening, it is important to remember not to wear a dress that is too short or otherwise revealing. The ceremony is often held in a Church or other religious venue, so think “smart” rather than “sexy” when choosing your attire.

It is not recommended you wear anything that shows too much skin, so a strapless dress or a low, cleavage-revealing neckline is not ideal.

Think of a Christening much like that of a Wedding. Think of it as an excuse to dress up in your finest occasion wear.

Dusk White Long is the perfect mix between style and sophistication.

This Cream/Ivory silk chiffon and Georgette dress entails a silk chiffon contrast cowl neckline and simplistic front pleating at the thighs, making this dress perfect for that special occasion.

This versatile, cool, easy to wear dress is sure to wow your guests (if worn by the Mother).

Alicia Platinum is perfect for something a little shorter in length. It features silk sleeves, a feature neckline and V-Neck bust.

This gorgeous Platinum silk knee length dress has been designed and made in Australia and would be perfect for all weather conditions on the day of the Christening.

Nude, soft blush and grey tones are always winners, and work for all complexions. Don’t be afraid to wear bright, vibrant colours that will make you stand out. From a fashion point of view, you are allowed to wear anything from white, red, green or blue.

Aurora Navy Long is a beautiful floor length dress that has been designed and made in Australia. It comprises a sequined detail at the bodice and a silk georgette drape/bow at the front.

It is made from Navy Silk Dupion and would look great on any Mother, Grandmother or guest.

The most commonly worn outfit for a God Mother is a dress. Dresses should always reach the knees and must have sleeves.

Sophia Cobalt is a stunning blue gown that would look amazing on any God Mother.

It is made from 100% silk and features a knee length hem, sleeves and pockets. It Features a V-Neck wrap and is easy to wear to make you feel comfortable throughout the day.

A God Mother may wear flats, sandals or comfortable high heels, depending on the weather.
