A christening is a truly special day for a new baby and the whole family, and those who have unique and stunning christening gowns that have been worn by generations are extremely lucky.
But most families will not have the spectacular gown they would have wanted, and when organising an event for the new arrival it can be a fantastic opportunity to look for a christening gown that could become a family heirloom and be handed down to future generations.
Here are two of our favourite christening gowns for parents who want to start a new tradition when planning a christening:
Marlborough Christening Gown (£160)
Our long, classic-style Marlborough christening gown is handmade in 100% silk with 100% anti static polyester lining, and the traditional christening gown is sure to be treasured in years to come. It can be worn by both boys and girls, and comes in either white with platinum contrast silk piping around the peter pan collar and along the yoke, or in ivory with champagne-coloured piping. A truly stunning christening gown!
Elsie Christening Gown (£160)
Another favourite for parents wanting to keep a christening gown as a family heirloom is the beautiful Elsie christening gown, which is also handmade in 100% silk with 100% anti static polyester lining. The gown, which is more feminine than the Marlborough one, has hand-embroidered roses and leaves around the neckline and puff sleeves. It looks adorable with our Frill bonnet and Bella Rosa shoes that complete this amazing baby girls christening outfit. Stunning and adorable!
