    Christening

    I would truly appreciate any input on the following:

    1. Is it common to make a christening gown out of a wedding dress nowadays?

    2. Where can one get a christening cake?

    3. Is it ok to wear a nice smart dress from e.g. N & Bs rather than a traditional christening gown?

    Thanks!

    Hi

    I don't have all the answers, but we had our girls christened a few months ago and I had 2 christening gowns for them, 1 was made by my partner's aunt and was a long traditional style and the other I bought from Next in the UK and it's a more contemporary shorter style dress. We had little blankets made for them with their names embroidered too which we never used in the end because it was such a hot day. For the cake, we just asked a cake maker to make a design I wanted, with little booties on the top and the girls names and dates of birth on.

    Not sure if that helps!
