Christening Dress Tips
Whether it is the girl or the mother -also the father or the brothers- one of the most important aspects of a baptism is to achieve a general harmony. That is, recreate the planned scene in every detail so that everything is perfect. The ceremony, the decoration, the banquet, the music…everything must be matched, and in tune with the spirit of the event and the atmosphere that is sought to be created. The baby is the protagonist of this story and if she is a girl, the christening dress occupies a leading role. But the curious thing is that, somehow, it is not about choosing the baby's look in isolation but always in relation to the style of the event.
In other words, the great advice of this important event would be: the sum of the parts is more important than the whole. And for this, some determinations must be made that will allow the organization to start rolling. have you fallen in love with a christening gown And do you want the decoration to be in tune with the baby's look? Do you give more importance to the decoration of the place and accept that the dress is in tune with the colors of the decoration? Maybe you like traditional weddings and the baby's dress should follow that line? There are many ways to think about a baptism and also to choose the baby's dress.
You may have seen images and ideas on Instagram and Pinterest. The problem is that many times with more options... more disoriented... You can start with the basic rule that I told you: everything must be in tune, do not lose the focus of this basic slogan. With this clear, you can start organizing each particular item.
Traditional ceremonies are the choice of many Spanish families who dream of eternalizing the day of the baptism. In this sense, the choice is not difficult. Organizing starts with knowing it's a classic event, which makes it easy to choose the color palette. In that case, it is possible that the organization was simple, and traditional colors such as white, gold, light blue and pink abound, depending on whether it is a boy or a girl. Now, it's time to choose the family look and things may get complicated.
In these cases, the problem is not in the choice of colors because it is something simple: it is about returning to the traditional color palette. What must be clear is the order of relevance. And what does this mean? Well, we must be clear that the protagonist is the baby, his christening gown, his special outfit that will make him look beautiful and stand out among the guests. The rest of the family has to accompany in the second line, which means maintaining the balance between standing out and at the same time not overshadowing the protagonist of this happy story.
If you like religious ceremonies and you are in favor of having your child baptized, the baptismal outfit must be the right one to make it a beautiful baby. Classic suits are always a good choice for this type of celebration. Although there are parents who want to baptize their children when they are somewhat older, in most cases they are young children who will look very handsome with a typical suit or a white baptism dress. Of course it is possible to add some details and it is these that open the door to play with color. At least in the case of the most classic ceremonies where the predominance of white can limit the alternatives.
Remember that the most classic and lasting through time are the skirts, here the sex of the baby does not matter, both boys and girls can wear them equally. These skirts consist of a kind of long dress, usually made with delicate or hand-embroidered fabrics. They can be accompanied by a hat, socks and shoes and the appropriate colors are white and pearl. Remember, the accessory elements can give life to a different color palette, so it is in these details that you can play adding other shades.
If your style is more modern, your baby will be just as precious with any outfit. If she is a boy, she will be gorgeous with a romper, if she is a girl, a pretty dress will make her a little princess. Here the secret is not to lose the focus that it is a baptism, that is, a religious ceremony in which certain flashes of color and modernity must harmonize with the spirit of a celebration that begins a religious path. In this sense, it is good to apply the balance rule again.
This means that if you like the most modern style, it is possible to incorporate it in all the details. In this way, you can play with the air of renewal without clashing. You can add a current palette in the decoration and in the souvenirs. Or opt for the brothers to wear a more relaxed look. Music is groundbreaking by nature so you can choose current songs that invite you to dance.
As to christening gown or the suit, today there are brands that offer modern but not eccentric alternatives. There is a catalog of options for all tastes because you don't have to always dress a child in white at his baptism. The current palette highlights the old pink that has become a very current color but at the same time it is classic. Or you can combine gray with white in the case of children, another color that today is also classic but current. If you pay attention, the Scandinavian-style color palette, so present in current fashion, is very suitable for baptisms so you can be guided by it, as soft tones such as white, beige, old pink, gray predominate , etc.
Some recommended stores in various parts of the world are:
- Alicia Infants (Madrid).
- First Age (Spain Online).
- Greek Baptisms (UK).
- Nana Luna (Lima- Peru)
- Parakeet (Lima- Peru)
- Pam-Pam Menetes (Catalonia)
- Cocomiel (Argentina)
the mother of the christening
Maybe you feel very excited in the baby christening but make no mistake, keep in mind that the protagonist of this celebration is the child. So even when you want to look perfect because this event is very important to you, remember this starting point. Do not forget. What does this mean? That you can look perfect without overshadowing the baptized. In this sense, a good tip is to choose simple clothes but at the same time elegant. Choose a comfortable outfit because you will spend many hours on your feet, with the child in your arms, taking pictures, talking with the guests, from here to there. It is important to choose an outfit that is versatile without losing elegance. Comfort is another parameter to take into account.
You can opt for an outfit that can become simpler as the hours go by, for example the possibility of having a jacket at the beginning that you can later take off. A great resource to look simple but at the same time stylish is to use accessories. These can make the difference between a boring style and being very trendy. We are not only talking about necklaces and bracelets but also about belts, scarves, hats, etc. Remember that a baptism is a religious ceremony, pay attention to the surroundings and avoid being out of tune. A simple cocktail dress, a long flowing skirt or palazzo pants combined with a white blouse can be your best allies and there the accessories play a leading role to add a touch of modernity. Avoid too strident colors or a style that ends up starring in the scene.
In some cases, a style is chosen that matches the look of the baby, in the case of girls, the similar christening dress can inspire the look of the mother. This depends on what you want and it is a viable option that will help you to order the scene and that the baby is always the protagonist. Or opt for some detail of the mother's look that is present in the baby's look, such as a complement. When it comes to footwear, don't forget to pay attention to comfort. If you are a fan of high heels and you feel comfortable with them, wear them but if it is not usual we recommend choosing something lower. Or start with heels and then have some ballerinas at hand or low shoes.
The same style can be followed by the father and brothers of the honoree, respecting the same decisions as in the case of the mother. The most important thing is that, beyond everything, the baby will be beautiful on the day of his baptism, taking into account the style of the family, the comfort and, above all, the love present in this event that will undoubtedly be one of the most most special of family life.
