It’s your baby girl’s first important religious milestone and it is vital that you start sending out the christening invitations as early as possible. If you are an early bird, then it is only a matter of giving your stationer of christening invite designer the date, place and time, once you have spoken to the church and decided on the matter. However, if you are not among the early birds and constantly find yourself running around to organise last-minute parties, keep reading as we may have a few christening party ideas and christening invitation design inspiration that might help you pull things together on time.
First thing is for sure, the colour of the christening invitation has to be pink. In the event of your daughter disliking the colour, do opt for something less candy-coloured, however a guaranteed last-minute life saver for christening invitations for girls is the colour pink. It tells guests attending the ceremony whom they should bring presents for and be sure to expect a lot gifts that are pink!
Next thing you need to be alert of when designing christening invitations is the religious symbols. There are a few “traditional” religious symbols that are used for christening invites namely: crosses, doves, lamb and any other appropriate images symbolic of peace, prosperity and innocence. These symbols can be set against either a single coloured baby pink background or a subtle print embodying the christening invitation.
Another quick tip for effective christening invitations is to include a picture of your baby. It doesn’t have to have been specifically captured for the christening invite but perhaps you may have a picture of the little one that was taken in the hospital or a moment that was captured by a loved one who stopped by to visit the new-mother and daughter. Either way, it is an ideal way of having very elegant christening invites and also a great last minute plan for those who haven’t decided on designs, themes etc already.
As christening parties usually follow a little reception of sorts, it is best to speak to your caterer and get a range of cupcakes and finger-food that go in accordance with the theme and all things pink. Good luck with the organising!
