A christening, or naming ceremony, is one of the most joyous occasions in life. Not only is it an important ceremony where a new member of the family is more formally introduced to family and friends, it also provides an opportunity for the extended family to spend time with each other.
And, of course, it is a great time to look at a new dress or check out the latest designer hats. When considering what is most appropriate for a christening you should keep in mind the venue. The event is very often held in a Church or a large open space. Even on a warm summer’s day these can be chilly buildings, so a jacket is a must. The beautiful tailoring of the Condici outfits lends itself well to a church environment. Each dress has a matching jacket or coat in wonderful silks and crepes. For a more fluid, less structured dress, that also comes with co-ordinating jackests, Ann Balon outfits tick the right boxes: made from Italian lace an Ann Balon dress combine comfort with classic styling.
A hat is not always necessary at a christening, however in the chill of a church a designer hat will not only look good it will have the added bonus of keeping the cold at bay.
