What is a Christening vs a Baptism?

Welcoming a new child into the family is such an exciting time. If you have had a baby, you may be thinking about baptising or christening your child. What are the differences between these religious rites?


Baptism is a ceremony dating back before Christianity. It is one of the traditional sacraments that admits a person into the Christian community. Unlike a christening, a baptism is for all ages (apart from some religious groups that don't practise infant baptism).

Christenings are a more recent ceremony, originating around the 14th century. A christening is similar to a baptism, but it focuses on the child's naming ceremony. The baby will be 'christened' with their name, and gifts are usually given to the parents. Because of this, christenings are for small children only. Many people today also view christenings as a more symbolic occasion than a strictly religious one. What is a Christening vs a Baptism? Cute Pink Church Featured Design: 'Cute Pink Church'

The Differences

~ A baptism is a traditional sacrament. A christening is a more modern rite. ~ A baptism is for any age. A christening is for babies and young children. ~ A baptism celebrates coming into the faith. A christening celebrates the child's naming ceremony.

Other Options

Some parents may not want a christening or baptism because it symbolises a commitment to a religion. If you feel the same way, you could choose to have a church blessing instead. This will allow you to host a special occasion for the child while leaving baptism for a date in the future when your little one can appreciate what it means. If you would prefer to have a non-religious occasion to formally welcome your baby into the world, you can always choose a humanist naming ceremony or 'naming day' instead. Naming ceremonies don't contain religious content, and you can hold them in any venue you want. People hold them for children of all ages, too, making them popular for welcoming an adopted child into the family.
How Much Money Do You Give for a Christening?

How Much Money Do You Give for a Christening?

If you can't think of a gift suitable for a christening, then you may wish to give them money instead. But how much money should you give? It's a tricky question! Here is how much money you're really expected to give as a gift:


For your family members, you may wish to spend a little more than you would for anyone else. A cheque or some money for a savings account is a great gift for your younger family members. We think up to £100 makes a great christening gift, but you shouldn't feel the need to spend more than you can afford.


If it is your friend's child getting christened, your budget can change massively depending on how close you are with them. The general rule when it comes to friends is to spend the same amount on their child's christening as you would their birthday, so whether that's £10 or £50, it's completely up to you. If you are struggling financially and worry that you won't be able to bring a present to the christening, be sure to discuss this with your friend. A true friend will understand, and shouldn't expect lots of gifts anyway!

Money Presentation

However much money you decide to give, you'll need to make sure it is nicely presented. It will make your gift unforgettable. Here are some of our favourite presentation ideas: Card Pop your money in a lovely christening card. Alongside a thoughtful message, it will make a great gift. Piggy Bank A money box (or a traditional piggy bank) makes a lovely gift, and can be kept for years to come.  

If the child getting christened is older, it's also a great way to teach them about saving. In a Bottle You may also want to pop some cash into a bottle. Add a letter to make it the perfect keepsake, too. With a small rustic tag and some ribbon attached, your gift will look amazing.

How Do You Plan a Christening?

How Do You Plan a Christening?

A christening is a beautiful way to welcome your baby, and the perfect first step in a life of religion. Here is a simple guide on planning an unforgettable christening:

The Church

Your baby's christening should be held at your local church. If you don't attend church regularly, discuss this with the vicar. Some churches will expect for you to be attending religious services before and after the day. Also check with the vicar whether your child's christening will be an independent service or a part of the weekly Sunday worship. Plus, when booking your service, be sure to choose a date that you have checked with your godparents - they need to be there!

The Ceremony

Your child's christening ceremony will be fairly straightforward, and should only take around half an hour. How Do You Plan a Christening? - Church of England Christenings Featured Image: Church of England Christenings It will start with an introduction from the vicar, followed by the promises by the parents and godparents, the baptism, and a reading. However, different churches may have different traditions or orders for this.

The Christening outfit

Consider what outfit your little one will wear. Do you want to stick to tradition, or do something more modern? If you want to follow tradition, dress your little one in a long white or cream gown. This is a popular choice for both boys and girls, and can be reused in the future if you have more children in the family. Alternatively, dress your child in other smart clothes, such as a smart shirt and chinos. It's completely up to you! How Do You Plan a Christening? - One Small Child Featured Image: One Small Child Don't forget how fast your little one grows! Don't buy clothes too far in advance of the day, as you may find that they don't fit.


Before the christening, decide who your child's godparents will be. Choose people who are actively involved in your child's life, and will continue to be for years to come, such as your sibling or your closest friend. If you are choosing a new friend, ask yourself whether they will definitely be there for your child throughout the next eighteen years. It is generally seen that you should have three godparents, with two of them being the same sex as your child. But it's up to you! If you are particularly religious, you will also want to choose godparents who are dedicated to your religion, so that they can act as a religious guide to your child. Plus, you should check with your church what their requirements are. Some churches will expect for godparents to attend regular services at the church, whilst others will be much less strict - the only requirement being that the godparents should be baptised.

The Reception

After the ceremony, you'll probably want to host a reception. This is a great place to socialise with friends and family, as well as receive gifts for your baby. The size of your reception is completely up to you. Some people will only want a small event, whilst for others this will be a major celebration. Venue First, choose your venue. Popular venues include church halls, pubs, and restaurants. You could even host your reception at your house. Decorations You will usually be expected to provide your own decorations for your venue. Popular choices include balloons and bunting in shades of pink, blue, or cream. How Do You Plan a Christening? - Cherie Kelly Featured Image: Cherie Kelly For more formal christenings, expect to see a lot of flowers. Food and drink Christenings will rarely have a sit-down meal, and will usually have a buffet. This is mainly as they are held at around lunchtime, so people probably won't be hungry. Plus, if any of your guests have specific dietary requirements, it makes it much easier for them to have something to eat. Some parents will also choose to have a christening cake. Much like a wedding cake, these can be very professional (and expensive!). However, these aren't essential. Gifts You can also expect for your child to receive gifts at their christening. Popular choices include silver spoons, bibles, framed prints, and jewellery. If you are after something specific, such as money for your child's savings account, be sure to mention it on your invitations.


There won't be any party without your invitations! Choose some beautiful invites, and send them to guests six weeks before the event. Remember to extend your invitation to your vicar! How Do You Plan a Christening? - Christening Invitations - Boys Church & Bunting - A6 Postcard Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Boys Church & Bunting - A6 Postcard Important things to include are your baby's name, the time, date, and location (of ceremony and the reception), and your RSVP details. If you are having a specific dress code or theme, be sure to mention this, too.

After the Day

Once the christening is over, there's still some things to consider. Thank You Cards You should definitely send out a thank you card to all of your christening guests. It's only polite! How Do You Plan a Christening? - Thank You Cards - Dusky Pink Photo Typography Featured Product: Thank You Cards - Dusky Pink Photo Typography Thank them for attending, as well as any gifts that your little one received. You may wish to choose a thank you card with a beautiful photograph of your baby on. It makes a wonderful keepsake. We hope you have enjoyed this blog!

How Do You Word a Christening Invitation?

How Do You Word a Christening Invitation?

A cute poem? A lengthy formal paragraph? Something short and sweet? How exactly do you word a christening invitation?

Choosing pre-made christening invitations

You’ll want to browse christening invitations before making any decisions to gain some inspiration. Most already provide a majority of the wording, which will leave you very little to think about.
Christening Invitations - Blue Dots Typography - Pack of 10

Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Blue Dots Typography

In most cases, you'll just have to add details like names and addresses to create the perfect christening invitation.

What wording should be included?

Usually, christening invitations follow a fairly standard format.

Start with "(Name) and (Name) invite you to celebrate the christening of (Child's Name)".

Or, go for a more simple "You're invited to celebrate the christening of (Child's Name)", which is also ideal for single parents.

Below your introduction, provide details of the christening venue and the date and time of the christening. Don't forget to add details of the reception or celebration after the ceremony, if this is at a different venue.

Follow up with RSVP details, including your own contact number or email address.

Christening invitations only need to be simple. Most people already know roughly what to expect.

Should invitations be formal?

You have a choice. Will you go for formal invitations with beautiful fonts and elegant stationery design, or something more fun and colourful? It's really up to you and is a choice that should reflect your family.

You could choose custom christening invitations with a picture of your child, or something bright and colourful that's perfect for a baby or toddler.

Christening Invitations - Scattered Flowers - Pack of 10

Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Scattered Flowers

Alternatively, choose a design that's beautifully elegant with space for all of the details.

Who invites the guests?

Often, the parents will be the ones to write the invitations and send them out to family and friends. Sometimes, this is a job for the new godparents acting on the child's behalf. Again, this is personal preference.

Choosing a suitable font

For more formal invitations, try your hand at calligraphy. If you don't want to do this by hand, you can purchase custom printed invitations that use very elegant fonts.

If you're opting for something less formal, you can write with your usual handwriting or have some fun with your font choice. Whether you choose traditional or contemporary, remember that the invitation is simply a method of formally inviting your guests - as long as you're getting the right details to the appropriate people, the rest is really your choice.

Who Do You Invite to a Christening?

Who Do You Invite to a Christening?

A celebration of your child, and a promise to raise them in faith, a christening is an important celebration. But when you're writing the guest list, who should you invite to the christening?

How many people to invite

Often, a christening is held as part of a normal church service. You'll be around strangers and members of the church. Inviting 100 family members and crowding into the pews may not go down as well as you think. To you, the christening is a wonderful personal celebration. To other people, this is a standard Sunday at church and a sudden influx of guests might intimidate.

Christening Invitations - Scattered Flowers - Pack of 10

Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Scattered Flowers

Keep invites to the ceremony to close friends and family. They might include the child's grandparents, aunts, uncles, first cousins, a few friends and of course their selected godparents.

If you're hiring a venue for a celebration after the ceremony, you have the option to open up the guest list. This is where you can invite 100 people if you choose to. More distant family members and the rest of your friends can be included in this celebration.

Who to invite to a christening

Often, people invite the same people to the christening that they might invite to their wedding. This means that many family members will be included, along with friends of the child's parents. In most cases, children are christened when they're too young to express guest list preferences. But, if your child is older, it's important that their friends are in attendance.

Some children won't happily sit through a church service. If you're inviting children to the christening itself, think about each child's temperament. Will they be comfortable sitting quietly, and are they used to a church environment?

Christening Invitations - Suited & Booted - Pack of 10

Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Suited & Booted

Holding a christening party on the day of the christening, or another day of your choice gives you the freedom to invite as many people as you'd like. Stock up on christening invitations, and be limited only by the size of your venue.

What might factor into your decision

Are you catering? The price per head of food can quickly begin to add up. Christenings don't need to be lavish and expensive celebrations, and often they're best with a party food buffet and plenty of room to mill around. After all, most people are there simply to coo over your baby.

If you're on a tight budget, hiring a hall is the best way to keep costs down whilst inviting lots of people. Once you've paid for the room, you can invite as many people as you'd like.

If you're instead choosing a formal venue and paying a per-head price, don't be afraid to whittle down your guest list.

Do You Send Invitations for a Christening?

Do You Send Invitations for a Christening?

When there's a new baby in the family, you're bound to be excited about the christening. But if you're a first-time parent, you might not be too sure about the correct etiquette in this situation. That's particularly true nowadays when the internet has replaced so much of our traditional communication. Here are some quick tips to ensure that your baby event is handled the right way.

Why send invitations?

Invitations are a nice, personal way of inviting friends and family to celebrate your new baby. A christening is usually a fairly small event, so it's easy to take control of the guest list. The invitation can often become a cherished memento - not only for the baby as he or she grows up, but also for the godparents, grandparents and the rest of the family.

Choose a design that you like from our selection of boys and girls christening invitations.

What should you write on a christening invitation?

Think about how formal you want the invitations to be. Just like a wedding, you can set the tone of the entire event by choosing a particular level of formality for the invitations.
A more formal invitation should include your names, with no abbreviations and all numbers and dates written out as words:
"Mr and Mrs Stephen Jones request the honour of your presence at the baptism of their daughter Susana.
Saturday, the seventeenth of November at eleven o'clock
Saint Mary's Church, Leatherhead, Surrey"
If you prefer to invite your friends and family in a more informal manner, then your invitation may look completely different:
"Please join us for the baptism of Susana on the 17th of November at 11:00.
St Mary's Church, Leatherhead, Surrey"
Regardless of the level of formality, be sure to leave a space for an RSVP.

How soon should you send invitations to a christening?

Unlike a wedding, a christening usually only has a few weeks' notice, so send the invitations out as soon as your venue is confirmed. If you feel snowed under with the new baby, ask family members or the godparents to help you organise the invitations.

What about invitations for non-religious baby ceremonies?

Some parents are choosing alternative routes to traditional christenings and baptisms, and embracing modern alternatives. Even if you'd rather not have a church ceremony, you can still enjoy a special day for your little one and celebrate their life!

2) Develop a key sentence or phrase to headline the invitation

A christening invitation should be headlined with simple and effective wording that clearly expresses your sentiments. Finding the perfect words to invite your loved ones to such a special occasion is not always an easy task. What to Put on a Christening Invite? - Christening Invitations - Blue Dots Typography - Use Your Own Photo Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Blue Dots Typography - Use Your Own Photo
Keep it simple with these sample phrases:
“Please join us at the christening of our daughter!”

“You are invited to the christening of Samuel Smith.”
“Please join us in the christening of our daughter Emma.”
There are also a wide range of invites that come ready to send, with many key sentiments pre-written by experts to deliver beautiful and personalised feelings.

3) Incorporate all of the relevant information

Including all the relevant information on your invite is key to ensure there is no confusion amongst guests and the day goes as smoothly as possible. What to Put on a Christening Invite? - Christening Invitations - Twins Dotty Bunting - Postcard Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Twins Dotty Bunting - Postcard
Firstly, include your child’s name so every guest will know who is being christened. The second most important piece of information is the date. Followed by the name and address of the church, and the location of the reception (unless you plan on announcing this information at the service).
You may want to experiment with different ways to word this information and you may choose to include a particularly resonant quote from scripture.

4) Ask for RSVPs

Lastly, don’t forget to end your invitation with an RSVP card, email address or phone number so that they can confirm their attendance.

How to Invite People to Your Baby's Christening?

Getting your entire family into one place to celebrate your baby’s first year is a fantastic occasion, but it can also be a troublesome event to organise. Narrowing down who you want to be there for your little one’s special day is a feat in itself. Add a Christening to the mix and things get all the more complex! You’ll need to ensure that you’ve provided all of the attendees with the information they need to get there safely and easily - this is key to a smooth-running event. Christening invitations are traditionally sent to guests but, what exactly do I need to include on my invitations and how do I go about inviting them?

Keep it short but sweet

Usually, christenings involve a short service at the church and then ordinarily have light refreshments after the events have ceased. These refreshments could be held at your home, in the church hall itself or even in a local public house.How to Invite People to Your Baby's Christening? - Christening Invitations - Summer Pastel Flowers - Use Your Own Photo Featured Product: Christening Invitations - Summer Pastel Flowers - Use Your Own Photo
You don’t want your guests to be ringing on the morning of the Christening confirming church and party details so make sure this information is readily available on the invitations for them to refer to.

Don’t forget to send an RSVP card

So you’ve sent out your invitations and you’ve booked the date as planned - but how do you keep track of who’s coming along? Slip an RSVP card into the invitation for your guests to send their response on. Keep your response slips in a safe place. This way, you have an easy approach to seeing exactly who is coming. When it comes to confirming numbers and dietary requirements with any caterers you may have sourced, you won’t be running around after people checking to see whether they’re coming along or not.

Should a Christening be formal?

Should a Christening be formal?

Christenings or baptisms can be as formal or as informal as you like. Both are held in a church, the Church of England Christening is usually part of a normal Sunday service and a Catholic baptism is usually a separate ceremony. Both are a ceremony to welcome the baby into the religion and is the first step in bringing them up as a Christian. How formal it is will depend on your own personal preference. Last year Prince George was christened at a very small, private ceremony with only 22 guests. This month Swedish Royal, Princess Leonore, was baptised at a much larger ceremony of over 100 guests, illustrating that even in Royal circles a Christening can be as big or as small as you like. If you decide to have your baby christened you will need to meet the local vicar or priest to discuss the ceremony in advance. You may need to attend Church or discuss your faith with them. Godparents will be chosen early in the planning as you may need to give their names to the vicar and you will certainly need to organise a date for the christening when they can attend. When you have booked your ceremony at the church of your choice, you need to invite guests. These will normally only be close family and friends, so phone calls or emails may suffice. However sending out a formal Christening invitation about four weeks in advance can be useful for a number of reasons: 1. The style of invitation indicates the level of formality of the christening to the guests 2. You can provide full details of the times of both the ceremony and the reception afterwards 3. You can enclose any details about the ceremony, which can help guests who are unfamiliar with the service, such as requesting arrival 10 minutes early and expected length of the ceremony. 4. A formal invitation encourages a formal RSVP, to help with catering afterwards 5. An invitation is a nice memento of the event. The wording on an invitation will usually include a reference to “son” or “daughter” and the baby’s name. Although your baby’s christening may not be a formal event, guests would be expected to wear the clothes they would normally wear for a church service, hats are no longer expected, unless you are at a Royal Christening! The baby is traditionally dressed in white, although many parents are now opting for a white suit or dress rather than the family christening gown. Parents and Godparents should wear something “baby friendly” – ie that doesn’t show stains and washes well, in case of little accidents. Photographs tend to be quite informal, but several shots outside the church after the ceremony are a welcome addition to the family album. The reception is often at the home of the parents or grandparents or in a local hall. The food can be whatever you want and depends on the formality of the christening. Children would normally be invited as it is a ceremony for a child, it is shorter than a wedding and the reception tends to just be in the afternoon. Christening gifts are taken to the reception, but would normally be opened later. You should always send a thank you card afterwards.

Your Baby's Christening, Baptism or Naming Ceremony

The godparent and godchild relationship is a special bond directly between an adult and a child. Aside from any religious aspect, the relationship with a special adult nominated in a naming ceremony is exactly the same. Your naming ceremony gift to your godchild is one way of symbolising what that relationship means to you, setting the tone for how you would like that special bond to develop in the future. There is a vast array of christening, baptism and naming ceremony gifts to choose from - with something to suit everyone. We've created a list of the most popular gift types, from traditional to more unusual ideas for something truly memorable. You can find anything from financial investments and ride-on toys, to books and silverware – something for every budget! Here are a few of our ideas: Traditional silverware Classic book collections Memory/keepsake boxes Personalised gifts Ride-on/rocking toys Classic Disney films Soft toys Religious gifts Ethical gifts Playhouses Special relationship/wishes for the future It can be so hard knowing what to buy as a christening, baptism or naming ceremony present with so much to choose from - there’s also nothing worse than receiving three different silver napkin rings! Speak to the parents and seek advice form them if you aren't sure of what to get.
