What Is a Baptism Invitation?

When your child has reached the age for their first baptism, you can invite your guests to celebrate this major milestone by sending a Baptism Invitation.

Alternate Names:

  • Christening Invitation;
  • Baby Baptism Invitation.

This invite can be sent to as large or small a group as you choose and should provide each guest with all the information needed for the baptism or a link to a website that will provide the information. You can also make a cheap Baptism Invitation by choosing to send it as an e-vite instead of paying for printing and stamps to send the invites by mail.
