Sunday best is the longest running Christening wear e-commerce company around. When we first launched our website in 1996, there were 400 entries for christening gowns, now there are 1.9 million. This should give you some idea of what was available and the kind of competition we had when we started.
As a business, we have placed a focus on internet marketing in order to make our products available across the world. When we first started selling christening wear, there was only one other company who retailed christening wear, and they were based in the United States (Katydids who back then made christening gowns on a 6 week order turnaround). Over the years, the market has changed quite a bit!
In order to continue to evolve as a business, we began to design and produce our own christening outfits, filling gaps in our supplier offerings, meeting the specific needs of our customers. Now, we have our own complete range of christening clothes, and are beginning to look into becoming a supplier of christening wear. This should become a major point of business for Sunday Best.
Last month, Christenings were back in the spotlight with the future King, Prince George being baptised. There are a few preparations that can make your child’s christening one to remember.
So you’ve booked the church, chosen the Godparents, set the time and date and invited the guests, but have you arranged the party venue? Depending on the type of Christening you desire, a party location could be your own house, a restaurant, a pub venue or even out in the open countryside. The options are limitless and by ensuring your guests can join in with the celebrations after the ceremony, you’re able to make the day much more memorable.
The outfit is one of the most important aspects of a christening, and it requires a lot of consideration. Sunday Best have a wide range of beautiful outfits available, including gowns, rompers and dresses, and we can help you make sure you choose the right outfit your child. We also have a selection of accessories and these can also be just as significant, including: head dresses, footwear, cover-ups, sundries and bibs and shawls.
Photographers can play an important role, especially if you want the special moments captured, and the images a talented photographer can take are likely to be held on to for years, perhaps even framed and passed down through the family.
Gifts are part and parcel of a christening, and a christening gift for your child should ideally be traditional and symbolic. We have a wide range of christening gifts available for your child’s special day, whether you require good quality solid sterling silver bowls, cups, cutlery and necklaces with Celtic crosses or teddy bears, books and pewter picture frames.
We know and appreciate the significance of a child’s christening, and if you use this checklist a guide, we’re certain your child’s special day will be one to remember.
