Christening Checklist
a handy checklist to plan your big day

A Christening is the official celebration which welcomes your child into your chosen faith and formally announces the name you have chosen for them. Essentially, a Christening is the child's first initiation into the relgious faith.

Whether you've chosen to organise a christening, baptism or naming day celebration we've a range of gorgeous invites which can be created online in just a few easy clicks. 

Our personalised christening invitations offer the flexibility to type your own titles and invitation wording phrases to suit the nature of your celebration.

If you need any inspiration for what to write, have a read through our invitation wording page.  

Planning a christening takes a considerable amount of time (something new parents are often short of) so to help out we've devised a christening checklist which you can print and then simply tick off the tasks!

Christening or Baptism?

Christening and Baptism are words which are often used interchangeably and sometimes there is confusion as to whether they are the same celebration. However, there are subtle differences between a Christening and Baptism.

A Christening is a passive tradition as it is the parent's choice to raise their child in the Christian faith and not the child's. A Baptism on the other hand is usually performed when the child is older or an adult dedicates themselves to God. The term Baptism therefore should be mainly used when the person being baptised has made the decision themselves and the term Christening used when referring to infant baptisms.

Naming Day

Non-religious parents may opt for a Naming Day ceremony to mark the birth of their baby. The day can be as formal or as informal as you like and as with a Christening or Baptism, a party is usually held after the ceremony to formally celebrate the occasion.
