If you can plan well, then it will be very easy to christening a child. People actually get confused that how to start and what should do in order for a successful event. Here are some steps which will help you to baptize a child.
Finding godparents is very necessary to baptize your child and you can request them to be a god parent for your child. If they will agree with you, then start to chalk a plan for this occasion. And you can also consult with them how to organize this event and ask for their help.
Then you have to choose the date, time and venue of baptism. It can be at your local church or city’s main church. But you should give your god parents advance notice that they can organize it properly and adjust their schedule. If the godparents are coming from outside your area, then you have to arrange their ticket. Also, make sure you have plan for lovely christening bomboniere for the godparents as well as other guests.
Making the guest list is important and you should make it according to your priority. Once you have made the list, then calculate their food and beverages cost, and then select the place where you would love to give that baptism party. If the guest list is long, then you should hire a place where they can freely roam and enjoy the party.
Look at your budget and then decide where you would give that party, the party size can be short or big, it is totally up to you. Also, consider your budget while making list of christening bomboniere.
Now think how you will invite your guests; you can purchase christening cards from local shops, make that at home or customize that card to impress your guests and send them via post or email. You can also ask them that if they will attend that party at that day, do not forget to give the direction of the venue where the party will be arranged.
Select the proper attire of christening event; if it is a child or a baby ask about their attire with the godparents and also remember to bring accessories like candles and cape.
Decoration is important and is dependent on your choice of place; if the party is at a restaurant, then you can ask the restaurant employees to decorate for that. If that party is at another location, then you can hire decorators for that event, or you can decorate with friends and family using balloons, flowers, religious items etc. If you want to make that event remember, then hire a photographer to capture all the moments.
