Christening Gown Buying & Care

A christening gown is an outfit traditionally worn by a child to a christening/baptism ceremony. Christening gowns are typically white and very long, and intricately ornate in design. The following offers some quick tips on buying and caring for a christening outfit.

Christening Gown Buying Tips

§  Materials
Cotton, linen, and silk are three materials commonly used to make christening gowns. Cotton is inexpensive and washable. Linen christening gowns make very durable and beautiful family heirlooms. Silk christening gowns are very lustrous and comfortable.
 

§  Color
Yes, white is standard, but even white doesn't have to be uniform. Ivory, cream, and similar variations on white will provide a different look.

§  Era
A christening outfit can be modern or traditional. A Victorian-style christening dress is one option, or perhaps a Celtic or Irish christening gown. Or choose contemporary touches in frills, lace, and embroidery.

§  Accessories
Bonnets, bibs, shoes, and other clothing accessories can enhance or accentuate the style of a christening gown. Use a floral band or appropriate hat style to complement a period gown.

§  Other Details
Pay attention to christening gown lengths. A Cathedral-length christening gown would be dramatic. Appliqué work or colorful buttons can also distinguish a baptism dress.

Christening Gown Care
Another important consideration with christening gowns is washing. Most christening gowns are hand wash or dry clean only. Always follow the stated washing instructions.

If it is necessary for you to hand wash a christening gown, avoid placing it in direct sunlight to dry. To absorb excess water without wringing or twisting the garment, roll it in a clean white towel.

Wash christening outfits before storing them in preservation bags. Rinse and dry thoroughly, and avoid the use of starch or fabric softener.

There are various styles for boys and girls. Traditionally, boys and girls wore christening gowns. If you are following that tradition, you can choose a simpler, casual style for a boy's christening gown and bonnet/hat. Modern christening gowns are often made from cotton or satin. There are very modern outfits for boys including textured vests as well as a tuxedo-style outfit. Girls may have more elaborate embroidery on the bottom part of their dresses. Unisex christening gowns are also in the marketplace.
