Congratulations on your new arrival and it is no doubt that the baby is sure to make a world of a difference to the both of you. But before your lives get busier and days longer, it is almost time for your baby’s christening and to get started, it is important to send out christening invitations, inviting friends and family to be with you as your baby takes his or her first religious milestone.
One of the first things that you need to decide on when designing your baby’s christening invitations is undoubtedly the colour. If it’s a boy stick to blue and if in the event of a baby girl, then a pink, however if you want to stay neutral and not go ahead with the mainstream colours, then shades of lilac, green, brown, yellow etc are acceptable. Listed below are a few options for you when using religious design element in christening invitations.
The first most commonly used religious design element in christening invitations is the cross. A cross becomes symbolic of your baby embracing the religion and also acts as an indicator for those who receive the christening invitation.
Sheep are the perfect religious symbol for your baby’s christening invitation as they’re milky white and moreover a universal symbol of innocence. Sheep are ideal religious symbols to use on christening invitations for both boys and girls alike.
As sheep were to innocence, doves are to peace and prosperity. Your new born baby means change for you, your immediate and extended families, friends and colleagues. Having doves on the christening invitations also act as a symbol of good health, peace and prosperity for your baby, family and well-wishers.
The best part about incorporating religious design elements in your christening invitations is that they are not gender bias. Hence, if you are the super-organised sort who plans for things ahead of time, you could have your christening invitation design decided on even before the baby is born, along with birth announcement cards and personalise it with the relevant colour and an image of your new born, soon after he or she says hello to the world!
