This darling boy (in our Tyler christening outfit) was christened June 27th in Bucharest, Romania. Many thanks to his mama, Michaela, who said:
“…the ceremony and the party were great, my little one looked like an angel, everyone admired and praised him.”
Little Colin looks handsome as can be in his Braeden knit christening outfit! His mother, Karen, said:
“Just wanted to pass along photos of our little man’s big day. Thank you so much for the speedy shipping…the outfit got to us in plenty of time! Colin looked great and the outfit fit beautifully. Thanks for being a part of such a special day for our family!”
P.S. We’re out of stock in all but two sizes of this little outfit…we’ll have more next summer!
Shopping for christening gowns and baptism outfits online has its advantages (convenience of 24/7 shopping, large selection of styles and and sizes) and disadvantages, one of the biggest being that you can’t actually *feel* your selections before ordering them. We get that!
To offset that challenge, we’ve provided detailed descriptions of the fabrics we use in each garment. To find this information, just look under any listing’s description. It will be in the star bulletin named “Fabric”. You can also get a detailed description of each fabric by going to our fabrics description page. The fabric will be listed in columns, along with a short description of the textile.
In addition to the information found on each page, we proudly offer an unparalleled return policy with no re-stocking fees!
Lovely little Neah Eline was christened recently in Norway. Her mother, Linda, writes:
“I need to thank you for the most beautiful christening gown (Alyssa) my daughter had at her christening 23.11.2009. Neah Eline, 3 month, was sooo cute…. my little girl
Thank you for the the best service, i will and have told all my friends about you.”
I spent an afternoon helping my mother and sisters clean out my parents’ basement last week. It’s always an adventure to sift through stacks of memorabilia…they bring so many reminders and smiles. When everyone was busy elsewhere, I took a moment to crack open some of my mother’s old journals. (shhh, don’t tell anyone I was slacking!) It was fun to read some of her thoughts and daily activities as a new wife, and later, as a mother running her own business. She’s an amazing woman, I’m so glad she took a few moments out of her day to record what was happening in her life.
Anyway, back to the purpose of this post, in the process of cleaning out, Mom found this photo and brought it to me, saying, “I didn’t know I had this picture! This is Allie Wade!” (Allie is in the center, surrounded by her four daughters, one of whom was my grandmother.) It was a treat for me to see…I never knew her, but in this photo, Allie looks just like I remember my grandma. I wonder how much they were alike.
I may not have known her, but Allie Wade has had a significant impact on my life, through my grandmother and my mother. Though she never knew it, she has been a part of special occasions for thousands of children all over the world–every garment we make leaves our facility bearing her name, and along with that name, a hope that her legacy of love will extend to all.
I love, love, love this photo of darling Kaitlyn and her mama, Chantel! Chantel wrote:
“Thank you so much for the wonderful dress. Everyone loved it, and kept asking if we had it made for her.”
This little day-gown (meaning it is long enough to cover baby’s feet, but not as dramatically long as heirloom-length gowns) has always been one of my favorites. It’s simple, made from ultra-luxurious Indian silk dupioni, with enough sweet touches of pink to make it truly unique. The Tess baptism gown is available in seven sizes, from newborn to 24 months, and is hand-made in our facility. Check it out today!
Kayla’s grandmother, Patricia, kindly sent beautiful photos of Kayla’s First Holy Communion, held May 2, 2009. She commented:
“Kayla looked absolutely stunning with the [Miss Tiffany communion dress, beaded veil,] satin shoes and pearl bracelet…thank you for the fine service and quality merchandise…Kayla loved everything and had a most joyous day.”
From the archives, Julie said:
“Back in July (2007) I purchased the Christening Gowns from you to have my daughter Baptized, it was so beautiful. I have attached a few pictured I had taken to remember the very special day. Thank you so much for such a beautiful dress.”
