After nine months of pregnancy, one of the main doubts of the parents is regarding the baby’s baptism. Invitations, godparents, guests, buffet and location are some of the issues that cause more uncertainty when it comes to baptizing the child. When it comes to invitations, many moms and dads don’t know if they bet on minimalism or more elaborate invitations.
According to the Annuarium Statisticum EcclesiaeThe number of baptized babies in the Catholic Church rose 6% from 2011 to 2016. The data shows that although many families decide to baptize the little ones in another religion, the Catholic baptism ritual is still present on the globe. That said, to begin the planning of the ceremony, one of the first issues that the family is concerned about is the invitation.
According to Paper Designer Fabiani Christine, the choice of invitation is part of the baby’s arrival in the world. “By organizing the christening, the parents realize that nothing else is a joke. Organizing invitations, guests and choosing the child’s godparents becomes something important that deserves attention. The baptism event is something wonderful that is part of the baby’s arrival in the world and, in my opinion, the parents should be very cautious when choosing the people who will participate in this important moment,” says Fabi.
According to Paper Designer, it all starts with creating an invitation. “Parents must choose the invitation that lives up to the moment. I think less is more. I don’t recommend invitations full of information and very vibrant colors. The footprint of the year is in minimalism, and because of that I recommend the use of pastel tones and shorter texts. These elements make a simple and beautiful invitation,” explains the expert.
But for those who like something more elaborate, RememBear offers personalized invitations according to the taste of each family. “We do everything around here. Some of the most requested are bears holding the invitation plate, personalized invitation notebook and box with the invitation inside. The store also has invitations to invite loved ones to be baby’s godparents. The fluffiest invitation that comes out a lot are the custom tins with teddy bear and invitation inside”, says Paper Designer.
Another version of the invitation that is on the rise are those made at home, the famous “do it yourself”. “Home invitations, besides being a therapy, can come out much cheaper than custom-made. Some can be done digitally in Photoshop, but for those who like to get their hands dirty and do something simpler, the tip is to buy colored papers, satin ribbons, thin pens and print some photos. Making the collage work makes the invitation handmade and with that special touch”, concludes Fabi.
