Where Do I Buy Boys Christening Suit?

Christenings are special days for the entire family. Not only will your child be welcomed into a faith that will guide them through a balanced and loving life, but also the celebration can be enjoyed by everyone you hold dear. 

Christening ceremonies will require everyone to look their best. However, they have specific requirements for the child to be christened. These requirements are generally more straightforward with baby girls than with baby boys, however that lives a wider scope of choice for parents of little boys.

You'll have more options to consider for your boys christening suit, starting with the common christening gown and ending with the more modern and recently popularized baby boys baptism suits. These options are  available through our specialized online boutique - christeninggowns.com.

A History of the Boys Baptism Outfit

For the past 300 years, boys have worn christening gowns as a boys baptism outfit. However, before that, they were not compulsory. Babies before the 18th century were baptized in their swaddling clothes, most of which were white.

That tradition was derived from the Bible’s allusion, in Luke 2:7, of Mary having “brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes.” The swaddling clothes symbolized the gentle cloud of love wrapped around him.

However, with time, as the Anglo-Saxon and Judeo-Christian dressing culture became more intricate, similarities between the simplicity and symbolism of the swaddling cloth and the christening gown worn by Jesus as he ascended were observed. The christening gown thus came about as a pertinent evolution to a more evocative outfit.

In the past 3 decades, the approaches to boys baptism outfits have changed. New stylish options have emerged, making acceptable christening wear for baby boys a smart, traditional outfit in line with communicating themes of humility, warmth and purity.

Boys baptism outfits have become more fun and enjoyable for parents to come up with, providing them with an adorable incentive to look forward to the ceremony. The boys 3 piece suits, in particular, are adorable options for the modern parent looking for an outfit that will melt their guests’ hearts and make for the most adorable and lasting pictures.

Advantages of Choosing 3 Piece Suit for Your Boys Baptism Outfit

1. Added Formality

The added formality of a 3 piece suit for your baby boy isn't overbearing. Instead, it’s a playful acknowledgment of the seriousness and significance of the occasion. It’s ideal for parents who regard the christening tradition but have a modern, classic and elegant approach to expressing their faith.

 2. An Adorable Finished Look

The finished look of a boys 3 piece suit is an angelic sight that will make you laugh or smile for the sweetest of reasons. The contrast of this typically adult outfit with the small, chubby limbs of an infant or toddler is simply adorable.

3. A Warmer Option for Colder Environments or Occasions

Some christening ceremony venues make it harder to opt for traditional boys baptism outfit options as christening goes. In particular, churches can sometimes get cold or in the summer months, the AC can be quite chilly, which can make the child uncomfortable throughout the ceremony unless they're wrapped appropriately in warm and soft garments.

Our baby boy christening suits, however, are warmer by design because of the layers of clothes and the luxuriously soft fabrics we use. This warmth can bring comfort to your baby boy during the ceremony, particularly if he is being baptized in the winter or at a church with AC.

4. Pictures Your Child will Grow to Love

Both a baptism gown or a boys 3-piece baptism suit will have a definite sweetness of their own and your child will have sweet memories of his family passed down in photographs.  He is likely to find the pictures of his ceremony sweet and hear-warming, making him think more fondly of the ceremony and the efforts you put into welcoming him into his faith.

5. Creative Accessory Options

Baby boy 3 piece suits, like all our boys baptism outfits, come with an array of accessorizing options. A popular add on is a newsboy cap or a boys christening hats. The shoes can be a little more creative than traditional baptism gowns will allow, with options such as baby boys christening booties and leather shoes.
