Girls Christening Dresses
Welcoming a new child into a family is always a reason for celebration and joy. However, christening is another thing to be happy about. Besides welcoming the baby into its family, by christening, you are welcoming the child into his religious family. What would make Christening an extra special event?
One of the things parents and godparents are involved in is the childs’ attire for the Christening. So, it’s only fair to say that when it comes to Christening dresses for girls, they must be in tune with the event. Lucky for everyone, at Sophia’s Style we have the most exquisite girls’ christening dresses you’ll ever see.
Tradition says christening dresses must be long, white, and ethereal. They symbolize purity and innocence and they represent everything good in a little childs’ soul. That is why the selection of dresses we have are meant to be a statement of what that special day represents. The baby Christening dresses for girls are beautifully crafted. They are long and have all those tulle layers underneath an elegant taffeta fabric. All that material creates the illusion of clouds and the exceptional softness babies have about them.
You can search online for the perfect Christening dresses for infant girls, but know that at Sophia’s Style we take special occasions seriously. Before doing anything else, take a look at what we have chosen for you in the Baby category.
The first thing that comes to mind when talking about toddlers is how active they are and how much they don’t appreciate being a constraint. From the first moments their little feet discover they are meant for walking, they won’t stop doing that exact movement. They enjoy discovering things, exploring, and most of all moving. It’s no wonder that even in such a delicate and pious moment the little toddler will need to be able to roam freely.
For this little toddler who’s now just finding out that the world is this bigger place, clothes are sometimes an unnecessary burden. Everything you put on a little girl is pretty and she’ll be just like a princess in a Christening gown. But do keep in mind that she’ll need to feel comfortable and have enough space to move as she likes. Sophia’s Style thought about that and we selected some of the most beautiful and comfortable dresses for this special event.
Not only will the toddler girl look amazing on her Christening day, but she’ll also feel free and perhaps her day will be that much better. Toddlers don’t need a lot of reasons to throw a tantrum whenever they feel like their independence is at stake. So don’t give them another reason to add to the list by dressing the little one in clothes that don’t match her personality.
You can see here our collection of toddler girls’ christening dresses. Even though they look like little princess dresses, all white, poufy, and with lots of beautiful embellishments, they are also extremely comfortable. For the older girls who are just getting their Christening things might seem a little different. For one, they would probably like to have a say in what kind of dress to wear. And even though they understand more than a baby or toddler, they still need to follow tradition and choose an appropriate dress.
Lucky for all those involved in the process, we also have Christening dresses for little girls that would make even Cinderella want one. Rhinestones and sequins on the bodice, organza, tulle, or taffeta on the bottom part of the dress, lace and floral patches or ribbons adornments all seem to be part of how a little girl envisions her dream dress. It’s a good thing we are committed to having a wide selection of dresses even for the pickier girls. So when it comes to Christening dresses for little girls, here’s what Sophia’s Style can get for you.
And with the dress comes the accessories. Yes, let’s not forget the accessories.
Whether she’s an infant, a toddler, or a 3-year old, this girl needs the things that come with the dress and can’t miss a special ceremony like this one. For infants, shoes, veils or bonnets, and other accessories are not necessary. However, if the weather is not pleasant, she’ll benefit from having her little feet tucked into some pretty shoes. Soft silk or cotton shoes are what go best for a baby girl. And we have them in such beautiful designs.
For older girls, we also have elegant ballet shoes that will allow them to walk freely and in style.
See here our selection of shoes that work so well with a Christening dress.
Other accessories include different things for different ages. For infants and small children, there will be bibs, blankets, and even a whole baptism set box. While the little ladies could choose to add to their outfit something like a bonnet, a lace cape, or a headband.It doesn’t matter what the accessory might be, but how it complements the whole attire. See here what your options are.
At Sophia’s Style, we know how special this event is and how much emotion the ceremony entails. That is why we are dedicated to making that day run as smoothly as possible. We compiled in one place all the things you need starting with the Christening dresses for baby girls and all the needed accessories.
Christenings are joyous, yet serious events. A mid-length dress or a jumpsuit will be appropriate attire for such a celebration. Mind the stains you can get especially if you go with children and also take into account the season you are in.
Upcycle your wedding dress to a christening gown without worry, because you have a lot of fabric you can use. Have all the tools you need nearby if you want to tackle yourself this project and start cutting. Make sure to use all the beautiful parts of your wedding dress: the laced part, the embellished part and every bit of special adornment can be used for the new dress.
Although it can be rewarding to transform a special occasion into a DIY project, perhaps allowing the professionals to do it will save you money, time and it will make sure your dress doesn’t end up ruined.
Colorful clothes are always welcomed. For a Christening perhaps sticking to the pastels and more toned colors is better. Depending on the weather the women could use a cardigan or something to put on and the men, a coat over the suit. You should avoid dressing in shorts, low-cut dresses and short dresses are also a no. Perhaps avoid extremely tight clothes and revealing outfits. Stick to the formal dresses, cocktail dresses, and suits and it will be just fine.
Depending on the religion, the godmother is the one who will buy the christening dress. The godparents must check with the parents regarding the gown for the baby and see how elaborate they want it to be. Usually, the christening gowns are white or ivory to reflect the innocence of the baby.
Christening is a formal event with a strong religious connotation, therefore a formal attire will be required. A man can wear a suit in black, grey or dark blue, a shirt and tie. While not wearing a coat is not something unusual, dressing in shorts or a t-shirt is not ok.
