 How To Choose A Christening Gown   

How To Choose A Christening Gown

The christening gown represents a special treasure that is a keepsake signifying an important occasion for your child. When it comes to choosing a christening gown there's a huge range of gowns to look at. It's probably the second most important, piece of clothing, a mother will buy - the first being her wedding gown. Therefore you would surely want to choose a quality christening gown that will last through the generations to provide you with a long lasting treasure of nostalgic memories.

It's not difficult to find exquisite christening gowns, the problem is in finding the christening gown that suits you, your baby, your situation and that fits your budget! Therefore you should make your decision carefully. Consider the following:

Traditional or Modern?

The style of the christening gown is an important choice. It's a matter of tradition and personal taste. Do you want your baby to wear the christening gown that you wore when you were christened? Or do you dream of the latest style, perhaps a little tuxedo style outfit for your little man? Choose a christening gown or christening outfit that will have your baby looking beautiful, and yet not having you worrying about comfort throughout the ceremony.

Pay attention to the fabric. Choose all-natural fibers that breathe well and are comfortable to the child. Fabrics like 100% cotton, linen and raw silk are good fabrics for christening garments. These classic fabrics have been used for generations in the making of infant christening gowns and outfits.


White is the most popular choice for christening gowns, but that does not mean you are restricted to that one color. You can choose any color of your choice depending on what you want to symbolize for your child. White, however is the preferred color for a christening gown as it symbolizes purity and youth.


The climate, of course, is an important consideration when choosing your baby's christening gown or christening outfit. If you live in an area where it is hot and sunny, you might want to choose short sleeves and lighter fabrics such as silk or cotton. In cooler climates, you will surely want to consider a christening blanket, bonnet or hat and sweater.

Trim Details

Pay attention to the tiny details. Are the buttons sown on properly or will they fall off the first time you button them? Are they proportionate to the size of the christening gown? Does the color of the buttons match the gown? Make sure the lace matches in color and is proportionate to the gown. Are the buttons and lace attached so that you don't' notice the stitching?


You will want your baby to be as comfortable as possible on his/her special day so make sure baby has enough room to move around without constriction. When choosing the size of your baby's christening gown make sure the garment has enough room to move around without the cutting into his/her skin. Always check sizing charts for proper fit. Watch that the material is soft against the skin and doesn't cause itching.


There are so many accessories available for your baby's christening, it's easy to go overboard. You will need, at a minimum; shoes, socks, bonnet or hat and a slip (for a girl's gown) and a bib to protect the gown. If you live in a cooler climate, it's wise to add a blanket or sweater to your list. Other great additions include; a christening bible, bracelet, or baptism towel. Don't forget a muslin preservation bag to preserve your gown after the ceremony.

Christening gowns can be plain or fancy, but should always be made of the finest material and stitching. Christening gowns or outfits should also be elaborate and beautiful as well as soft and as comfortable as possible.
