Religious Ceremonial Outfits
Christening and baptism, bris and naming: each tradition has a long history of symbolism and significance. At Christening Essentials, we know that children's religious ceremonial outfits add meaning and beauty to these important occasions. To help you in your apparel search, we've provided these brief descriptions of the different types of children's religious ceremonial outfits you'll find at our site.
Christening and Baptism
White christening gowns were for many years a tradition for both girls and boys. However, modern christening clothes and baptism outfits are more gender oriented.
For baby girls, white christening gowns and christening dresses remain the standard. Girls christening gowns are typically very ornate, with a great deal of lace, trim, and detail. Many baptismal dresses are completed with a matching bonnet.
Boys christening outfits take many forms. Rompers, vests, and one-piece christening outfits are all common, as are christening suits and tuxedos. White is still the standard christening attire color for boys.
Bris and Naming
For the Jewish ceremony of Bris, Bris gowns or Bris sets with a matching yarmulke are worn. The back closure of a Bris gown should offer easy access. White is the common but not exclusive color.
A naming set for a baby daughter typically includes a white dress, panties, hat, and booties.
Many of the children's religious ceremonial outfits you'll find at Christening Essentials can also be worn for other special occasions, such as weddings or holiday celebrations. Whatever occasion is being celebrated, we recommend adding a preservation bag to your purchase so you can keep your child's outfit as a lasting memory.
