Christening, the first special occasion in a baby’s life, is a tender and poignant moment in the parent’s life too. You want the very best for your baby in all aspects of her life and why not start by giving her a wonderful christening gown. Some families have christening gowns handed down from generations, indeed they are heirlooms. Nothing better for your baby than to wear the same gown worn by her mother or grand mother and in turn pass it on to her daughter!

But, not to worry if you do not have any heirloom gowns. You can buy a new one and create an heirloom of your own, to be treasured by generations to come. Check out our guide to baby christening gowns.


Christening gown

A christening gown is an infant’s dress which is especially made and worn for the baptism ceremony. These gowns are usually white in color and are very long. They are made of either linen, silk or cotton and have lace trimmings, embroidery and tucks. They also have matching bonnets, bibs and booties.

You can select a christening gown either in Cathedral length or long skirt style. Detachable skirt is another christening gown option. A smocked bodice can be comfortably stretched and worn as the baby grows up. Measure the child correctly before ordering for a christening gown online.

Wearing a bonnet is optional, though most gowns come with matching bonnet. You can get a simple headband or wreath of flowers. The baby girls of today are lucky indeed as they can be dressed in a wide range of gowns. All the gowns come with a matching bonnet, but you also have the choice to opt for matching personalized bib and booties. You can also have your child’s name and date of christening embroidered on the gown, to make it personal and unique.


You can opt for original silk gown in pure white with tulle overlay or with embroidered voile panels. Satin gowns in ivory with fragile Austrian embroidery are also another option. Smocked voile dress in white, ivory and cream will also look good on your little angel. You can alternatively opt for antique Edwardian and Victorian christening gowns, which would lend your baby a royal and regal appearance.

Christening gowns made from single edged, scalloped eyelet fabric adorned with embroidery, featuring batiste underlay is yet another choice. You can go in for an A-line skirt with an attached slip. Gowns can be woven with pink ribbons and encrusted with mother-of-pearl buttons.


Hand-crocheted christening outfit in shell stitch pattern, made from bedspread cotton is definitely gorgeous and will become an heirloom for sure. Exquisite satin gowns featured with delicate cutwork lace will definitely make your baby look like an angel. You can opt for flower shaped buttons if you desire.

Gowns in pure white lace designed with puff sleeves and adorned with sequined collar and satin ribbon accents, with matching bonnet will definitely be a good buy. For a truly vintage feel, you can buy the short sleeved gown made of cotton bubble gauze trimmed with appliqué work, ribbons and rosebuds.

Irrespective of what you choose, your baby will look good in every gown and be the center of attraction. Also, taking care of your baby’s christening gown is very important. Wash them according to the manufacturer’s instructions and store them in a preservation bag. Preservation bags are chemical-free cotton bags. With the right choice of gown and the correct method of storage, you have an heirloom christening gown in your hands.
