    Sorry if this is a bit dim, but to those mums who've had their LO's baptised, did you bring your own baptismal garment and candle? I've seen them for sale and wasn't sure if this was something we were meant to bring or not! No one mentioned it. Also does £30 sound about right for a donation? We're having our little girl baptised next month and I'm very excited! :happydance:

    We had to provide our own white shawl & candle, however the church would have given us a candle if we hadn't brought one ourselves. It was just that my SIL (also LO's godmother) had a special candle made with LO's name & the date of christening so we wanted to use that instead. We also gave £30 as a donation.

    Hope you all have a great day :flower:

    Hi, you must provide your own white shawl. You can buy one of the expensive baptism candles, although I just bought a normal church candle £3and this done the job perfect. The chapel will usually provide one is if you don't bring one. To be honest I would bring one with you as at my my first daughter's baptism we were the only ones who didn't bring one and it was embarassing having to be handed one. We made a donation of £20.00. There is no set amount, its whatever you can afford. X

    Oh right, I'll make tracks to get one! Might as well buy a candle while I'm at it, too. Thanks everyone!

    So is ours! Have a great day! :flower:
