Top 5 Most Beautiful Christening Dresses
Your baby’s christening ceremony is a very special occasion that you need to plan for appropriately. Part of the preparation involves consulting your priest or pastor not only for the purpose of fixing the baptism date but also to get to know how the ceremony is conducted and what is required of you as the parent. One of your very important roles will be to shop for the most appropriate christening dress for your baby. You need to know from your pastor or priest the type of christening dress allowed in the church.
Your baby’s christening is literally bringing the baby to Christ, meaning you will be “surrendering” your baby to Christian faith. While it will be baptized and given a name during the ceremony, your main desire will be for your child to grow up in the Christian faith, obeying your church’s regulations and fulfilling God’s requirements. Just like it is in a wedding ceremony, you need to dress your baby in an appropriate and acceptable christening dress that suits the occasion. This does not mean that you should not choose a beautiful christening dress; you need to choose one that is not only beautiful but also allowed in the church. Below are the top 5 most beautiful christening dresses you need to consider buying.
