Christenings are a pinnacle life event. Different places of worship have varying expectations about the actual type of christening dress that should be worn. The dresses can be worn by either male or females and usually are an off white or white colour.
Some christening dresses have been a form of family heirloom. The level of detail in the needle work combine with intricate needlework and lace gives the dresses their distinct characteristics. Great care and consideration should be taken when choosing a christening dress as it often an expensive item that is only used on a handful of occasions and should be special.
A christening is a cornerstone of faith so it is important for your baby to look nice and be as comfortable as possible. Adding a shawl to the dress can help protect the dress from any unwanted mishaps while adding an element of personalisation should you decide to customise it.
