It is a religious naming ceremony within certain faiths and not always obligatory. .
Christening often means Infant Baptism, a ritual where the parents take the bab…y to church to be blessed by an ordained minister, and to be sprinkled with water while the minister/priest says a special prayer..
Those that adhere to this tradition feel that this ceremony is essential for the child's eternal welfare..
Not all Christian denominations practice infant baptism. In those that do, the form and meaning often differs between the different religious groups..
For this reason, it would probably be best to check with the Church of the believers themselves, in order to see why that particular faith practices infant baptism..

This question has a rather subjective quality to it, and therefore may be subject to differing opinions on the subject. My answer also presumes the christening is within a Chr…istian context, whether Catholic or Protestant. A "Christening" or "Baptism" is an important event in the life of a family regardless of what denomination one belongs to. Therefore it is probably a prudent practice to wear clothing reflective of the fact that this is an important occasion. Clothing which reflects important events in the lives of a family are usually suits, or coat and tie, or at least shirt and tie. For women, whatever the female equivalent to a suit, or coat and tie is I think proper. Not being a women, I can't speak to what is considered formal dress. Some people however, due to their financial situation or unique situation in life perhaps are not in a position to wear a suit, or coat and tie, etc. In such a case, it is probably prudent to wear the best clothing one has available to them.

A christening is usually a ceremony where a child is welcomed into the Christian church, where their name is given and Godparents and parents take on the responsibility of bri…nging the child up as a Christian, and renounce sin and Satan on the child's behalf. Water is poured on the child and blessings are laid on them. Afterwards the child is considered part of God's family, part of the church, although they will have to be confirmed (affirm that they believe in Christ) at a later stage. (MORE)
