I stood as one of the godmothers for a friend's son. Since it was held out of town, I was in a dilemma what to wear as I might over dress for a laid back set-up. So I opted to wear a basic black trouser pants and flats. I just made "bawi" with a beaded top.
Could have been better with heeled shoes to look less casual but since I would be toting a baby around, flats are always ideal.
