It may seem that there is a lot to organise for a christening. But remember the important thing is that you and your family are there on the day to see your child baptised on their Christening day.
It is important to familiarise yourself and your baby with the church before the day so you can meet some of the people. Some of them might be thinking about having a christening too, or have already had their child christened. Take the opportunity to go along when your church invites you to find out more about having your child baptised at the christening.
Enjoy the party – a key part of the day is being with family and friends.Think about what you and your child are going to wear. Many parents like their child to have a traditional christening gown, but it’s not compulsory and there may be a special outfit that they’d be more comfortable in – that’s fine. A convertible Christening gown is perfect for both convenience and tradition, it provides a romper suit with a detachable skirt which buttons to the suit to create a traditional baptism gown. First Blessings Christening Wear have a lot of designs to choose from and every design is made to order, they provide a very unique and personal service. http://www.firstblessingschristeningwear.com
Like any celebration event, many families like to dress up for the occasion too. There are no hard and fast rules – choose what you’ll be happy and comfortable wearing on the day. Get in touch with your godparents and tell them what will be happening. They might like to know about this website.
Don’t forget photos – your child will be able to look back on them when they’re older and talk to you about what their christening means.
