Christening outfits for boys are becoming all the rage in baby christenings; particularly those that are less formal or are not held to a traditional gown wearing standard by the family or church. Most parents who plan to christen their child -whether it will be a private ceremony or more casual event such as a blessing- already have a style and personal preference when it comes to what their child will wear for the occasion.
If you are the parent, godparent or grandparent of a baby boy and plan to look into christening outfits for boys, but aren’t sure what you should have him wear, consider these things:
- Is it a casual or formal affair?
- Time of year the christening will take place
- Traditions within your denomination
- Trends of today
- Fabrics and their comfortableness
- Whether or not the outfit will be used again (preserved as an heirloom).
Your baby boy will undoubtedly resemble a real life angel on the day of his christening, and you won’t be the only one who thinks so. You and your spouse, friends, family and church members should be most focused on the event itself and the meaning it holds for all who are involved. Depending on your religious background, different events will take place during your baby’s christening. An anointment with holy oil or water, being prayed over and blessed, welcomed into the church family and faiths and promises being professed are the real reasons everyone will be gathered to take part in the day. Just as a wedding isn’t about the bride’s admirable gown, the christening day does not revolve around your baby’s gown or any outfit you choose to have them wear.
