How to dress correctly for a baptism

A baptism is a very special celebration and therefore, you have to come dressed in a specific way. It doesn't matter if you are a man or a woman, taking care when it comes to dressing for mom at baptisms is very important. Therefore, we want to help you by giving you some tips on how to dress correctly.

We must keep in mind that this is a celebration with a certain sober touch and the fashion of the moment. If you are a woman, it is not advisable to wear a high neckline or a skirt that is too short. If you are a man, you should never be disheveled, with torn clothes, out of joint, etc.

You have to take into account certain details such as keeping your nails very well cared for. If you want to save some money, you can choose some home remedies and do it yourself.

Will the celebration be during the day or in the evening?

It is a very important aspect to take into account because we will not use the same style for one moment as for another.

If the event takes place during the day, light colors are recommended. The dark ones are much more suitable for the afternoon. Whether during the day or in the evening, you should not use colors that are too bright. It is always better to go in a more discreet way. Furthermore, as in weddings, there are protagonists. In this case the protagonists are the children and not us.

If you are a man, the color recommendation is gray, blue, brown, etc. If you are a woman, the most recommended is red, purple, navy blue, dark green or black, for example. Although baptisms can be carried out at any time of the year, we must not forget about the range of colors to use. If they are made in autumn or winter, they will always go for darker or earthier colors.

You should never discard touches of warm colors such as orange or yellow, but in this case it is better not to wear monochrome. You can also mix solid colors with prints, but always making sure that the color combination is appropriate and feels good to us.

Discretion when dressing is a plus

A baptism can be a formal or informal event, but it is not a fashion show. Both boys and girls should avoid dressing with stridency or too flashy colors. You should never become the center of attention of the ceremony. The protocol for these events advises that you have to be elegant, but simple.

Although there is nothing wrong with wearing a miniskirt, a skirt below the knees is recommended. You should try to find a balance between the garments so as not to stand out too much. As for men, you should opt for simplicity. There is no need to be overly elegant. A basic set of jacket or even a jacket and jeans will be enough. For both men and women, the clothing worn should match the formality of the ceremony itself.

What shoes are the most advisable for a baptism?

It is not only recommended for its simplicity but also because it is an event in which you can spend a lot of time standing. In this case, you have to go for medium-heeled shoes or even mules. For boys, things are easier. You can use a shoe with a buckle or laces that matches the style and predominant colors. "Oxford" style ones can be used, although they are not the only alternative. You can also wear loafers to achieve a more relaxed appearance.


One of them is to avoid wearing too heavy makeup. It doesn't matter if the event is day or night, makeup should be as discreet as possible. Although having one of those important aesthetic treatments such as waxing and caring for your eyebrows is important.

Likewise, you do not have to take your entire jewelry collection with you. A thin chain and a couple of rings will be enough and it won't attract as much attention. For the bag, it is always advisable to choose something comfortable, with a chain or shoulder strap. Nude tones in shoes and bags are a success in this case.

As for the hairstyle, you can opt for a semi-updo, some informal updo, waves or hair straightening. You should not choose buns that are too collected or very elaborate, they can be too formal or eye-catching.

As for hats or pamelas, it is not recommended to wear them. Especially since you will surely hold the baby in your arms and it is not practical. If you want to decorate your hairstyle, you can go for a small ornament, but the hairstyle will be enough.

What is recommended is to wear a natural, sober and elegant style. Everything can change if a certain dress code is suggested in the invitation to the baptism. This is very important to always dress according to the occasion. The recommendation is the use of fresh and light fabrics, but also dresses that allow good mobility.

Romantic suits and dresses are always a very good choice for this type of celebration. Regarding the prints.
