I hope this doesnt offend anyone...

I wanted 2 get my son christened, not because im religious or anything but I was christened and so was my bf.
Is it right that we want to get him christened?! Confused

How do I go about a christening and I am under the impression I will have to see the priest (or whoever does it) sorry that sounds really bad doesnt it!?? and explain y I want him Christened..... ?! confusion!!?

anyone had their babies christened and why?!

Very Happy Hi yes i got my daughter christened, im not religious never go to church and neither do my two daughters, i was christened so maybe that is why i decided to get my daughter christened.

I havent got my other daughter christened yet because she is only 10 months and im due to give birth in 4 weeks so we are going to have a joint one.

You have to contact you priest and some churches suggest you go to church for a couple of weeks you may also have to have fortnightly meetings with you priest.

Get your husband on the job i did.

Good Luck
LET ME KNOW HOW YOU GET ON.

Very Happy Hey dont worry

It depends how many people you are inviting and where you are having it at.

If you are going to hire in caterers or do food yourself.

We usually do the food ourselves and it costs about 130.00 (my mum and dad do the catering)

Usually labour clubs are about 50.00 ot hire.

I cant remember sorry if you have to pay the priest it was 3 years ago.

Hey Ch4li3!

I am also starting to think about organising a Christening and hit the problem of who to choose as godparents - My church said that my god parents had to be christened aswell ( and preferably confirmed as well) as it happens my 3 top choices all are but I did have another possibility who isn't and I didnt feel like i could lie to a man of God!! Luckily the first 3 said yes but if they hadnt i dont know what i would have done!!

I have to donate to the church as opposed to paying the vicar, and then for food afterwards we are having a buffet at a local pub, costing about 100 xx
