Dressing appropriately for church is very important because you don't want to offend anyone. For a special occasion like a christening, you especially want to look nice. You can still be comfortable, but wearing something a little more dressy than casual attire is best. Nowadays, a more relaxed look is accepted in church, but you want to make sure you don't cross any lines.
