Dress for naming ceremony

02/04/2010 at 15:12
Hi ladies

We're having a naming ceremony for Olyvia in May and I'm looking for a dress for her...with not much luck at the moment!

I'm looking for something really special but NOT a Christening gown. Any suggestions on where to look? Have already looked online at Mamas and Papas (they have a couple of nice ones), Next (only start from 3months and she's very small), Debenhams, Monsoon, Mothercare, John Lewis, Jojo Manan Bebe, Blooming Marvellous, M&S....

Thanks, NN and Olyvia xxx

I was going to say monsoon - I need three dresses for Emilia in the next 6 months. One for my Grandparents 60th wedding anniversary, my wedding, and her christening!! I love monsoon.

I was also going to suggest Zara - they have some lovely baby clothes and do really pretty dresses for girls. Have to shop in store though as they dont do online

happy shopping!

Have you thought about having one made? It depends on what you want to spend, but if you look for somewhere that makes wedding dresses, they'll probably make something to order, in the size & style of your choice xx

Have you thought of a bridesmaidy type dress?

We got our flowergirl's dress from here, and were really pleased with the quality and the customer service.


Obviously, it's not the sort of thing she'd get a lot of wear out of, but you could resell it if wanted.

Ah, ignore my previous post. I just checked the Henry Kaye sizing and I think they only start at 6 months, so too big.

www.1-special-day.co.uk might do small enough sizes but not checked yet.

We have the same problem as you Poppy is very ickle and has only just started going into 0-3month clothes on some bits otherwise is stuck in newborn- grrr!!

We decided not to go for a christening gown for pop's at the twins christening but instead get a nice dress to match jack so i went for a brown/bronze from mothercares boutique range but its not on their online store. If you want to have a look message me on Fb and i'll send u a pic hun.
