    And not that I've christened a baby but I can understand no black at a christening.
    If it is the husband I find that even more distasteful - the thought of a husband ordering his wife what not to wear?

    I disagree on the no black at a christening front. That's the height of preciousness if it comes from the parents. And worrying controlling behavior if it comes from a spouse.

    I think a dress code is fine.

    I would not like someone showing up to a christening in a maxi dress day or afternoon

    What? Why? What's wrong with a maxi dress? What do you expect people to wear suits?

    I wore a black maxi dress to one of my children's baptisms, so I'm confused! Honestly, I just appreciated people showing up!

    I associate maxi dress's as beach wear? Unless your thinking something else (or can show me) what you would wear?

    And yes I do think suit pants and a nice shirt is appropriate (male), skirt, nice shirt heels, dress etc. christening a/weddings etc are formal not some sort of birthday in the park

    Oooops.... I had no idea you weren't supposed to wear black to a christening. I went to one a couple of months ago and wore, you guessed it, a black dress.

    Been to a thousand or more christenings. Hubby is a expastor. Not once have I ever looked at someone and said look what they wore. It's not about your clothing. It's about your commitment.

    I didn't say that. I said I would understand it but as I've never christened a baby I have no clue.

    I think until the op clarifies who exactly is asking this there are a lot of conclusions being jumped to about parents and how they raise their children.

    Who knows. Maybe it was mentioned very politely "hey by the way we'd appreciate it if no one wears black as it reminds my 90 year old Nono that she's supposed to still be in mourning."

    By the way that was a joke. This is fun but let the OP explain which she's been asked to do.

    I swear some things can only exist on Bubhub. Like strict dress codes for a christening. No maxi dresses? No black? WTF? I'm putting it down to crazy Bubhub world and saying OP wear whatever you please with the small caveat that it should be respectable enough to wear in a church (no string bikinis) and smart enough that it looks as if you made some sort of effort (no trackies and ugg boots)

    I don't necessarily think its the 'wrong' or 'bad' thing.

    There are still churches that are quite conservative and traditional. This coukd be a case where there aren't necessarily 'rules' but dressing a certain way is expected/encouraged.

    I am not going to go into whether th is is the right or wrong thing but it is a possible scenario.
