Choosing a Christening Dress

Hello Mommies and Daddies!

I hope you are having a wonderful Monday! Today we want to share our thoughts on choosing a Christening dress. Christening dresses are a special, treasured keepsake for most parents. The Christening ceremony is very often the first of all the other important ceremonies for your child. In some cases, families plan elaborate Christening celebrations, including well thought out invitation and favors for the guests. Because the Christening of a child symbolizes the beginning of that child's relationship with God, this ceremony is sacred and traditional. You'll want everything to be just right, including the dress your baby will wear during the ceremony. Pictures will be taken, and family and friends will be in attendance. A beautiful Christening dress will make the ceremony all the more precious and special, so parents typically choose their baby's gown with care. It is an event that will be remembered and cherished forever.

There are a few things to consider when choosing a Christening dress.

1.) Quality. Consider a dress made of quality fabrics that will withstand the tests of time. When your little one grows up, you want a dress that can be stored for years before you bring it out along with all the memories of her special Christening ceremony. We specialize in quality fabrics and craftsmanship here at and would never stock a dress that wasn't high quality or sturdy enough for wear. Many of our dresses come in the traditional fabrics for Christening dresses: satin, silk, and organza. We also provide dresses in other various fabrics and styles for you to choose from.

2.) Color. Traditionally, all Christening dresses and accessories are white to represent purity and holiness. Our entire collection of white Christening dresses come in a clean, angelic white and some of them are accompanied by a matching robe and bonnet, all in white. In our accessories collection we have socks, tights, shoes, sashes and other outfit complements, all available in white.

3.) Style. Customary Christening dresses are long and they include a robe with a hood or a bonnet. Today, styles range from very elaborate and formal to simple and casual. Casual dresses are no less beautiful than the formal, traditional styles. We have styles with lace, intricate embroidery, beading, rhinestones, sequins and pearls, as well as styles with simple skirts and bodices. In our collection we have both options available to you.

Our Christening Dress pick of the week:

This dress looks as if it was designed in the traditional style with its long skirt but there are so many details that make it look modern! Featuring the most elaborate floral embroidery and gorgeous pearl detailing throughout the entire bodice and skirt, this dress is definitely high quality. What really captures your eye is the diagonal, layered lace which gently cascades down the skirt. The sheer bell sleeves are absolutely precious and everyone will admire the work put into this amazing dress.

Happy Christening!
