Baptism ceremonies are one of the first and most meaningful traditions you will experience with your child. It’s a rite that dates back to biblical times, and serves as an important spiritual commitment. Originally, the term “christening” referred to a ceremony in which a child was both baptized and given their name. Currently, a christening is both a baptism and a formal presentation of your child to the church, family, and friends, which is why a christening gown is such a precious keepsake.
When choosing a christening gown, you’ll want to find something that is beautiful and timeless, just like the tradition itself. Many families choose to save baptism gowns so that they can be passed down, generation after generation, as a family heirloom. If you’re purchasing a gown, you probably already realize the importance of finding something beautiful for your child to wear, but you may also want to consider quality and style, as this is an opportunity for you to start your own family tradition!
At Sophia’s Style, we carry a variety of christening dresses that are hand made with clear attention to detail and quality. They’re pieces that will survive the test of time, and more importantly, the test of fussy babies. We carry gowns in several different styles, so you can choose from very traditional looks or more contemporary takes on baptismal wear. Everything is made from the best materials and sold at reasonable prices, because we know the importance of quality that’s affordable.
