    Default Is this dress appropriate for a christening gown?

    We'll be getting my daughter baptized around her 1st birthday so she'll hopefully be on the move by then. I don't really like traditional lacy christening gowns and my daughter will be mobile when she wears it so can't have a super long dress. Is this dress (in white) with a white cardigan or faux fur bolero appropriate?

    ETA - she'll be baptized into the Catholic Church if that makes a difference

    Yes, (in white) should no problem at all. I've seen a few Baptism's of older kids where the child's dressed in a non traditional type gown, seems to be more common place.

    Gorgeous!! Lots of bubs get baptized in non-traditional gowns these days, no real biggie at all.
