Top 3 Tips when Booking a Baby Naming Ceremony

So you’ve decided on a baby naming ceremony to welcome your little one or mark a milestone in your family, how exciting! This is where the fun starts.

The first thing to decide is who is going to write and deliver the ceremony. An independent celebrant is a good place to start. Not only can they help with venue recommendations and timings of the day, they will also write and deliver a bespoke script for your special day.

Top Tip Number 1: Do your research into other local celebrant packages and services.

Celebrants work on community over competition so don’t be afraid to make enquiries with others as it’s incredibly important to ”gel” and be happy with the service they are going to be providing. You might want to just opt for a script writing service if someone special is confident enough to deliver the ceremony and learn any ceremony rituals.

Once you have decided on the celebrant style you like, get in touch for a no obligation chat. Before paying a deposit to a celebrant to secure the date, ensure your ducks are in a row.

Top Tip Number 2: Ask if you can make a provisional booking. Fox & Star Ceremonies will hold your ideal date for 10 days.

Use this time to contact venues, photographers, cake makers and entertainment providers to ensure they can all do your preferred date.

Timings are really important. Most people see naming ceremonies as a Christening replacement so tend to opt for a Sunday. Most people choose Saturday’s for weddings but a naming ceremony can be on any day you wish.

Top Tip Number 3: When working out your timings for the day, consider baby / child nap time. If you are looking to hold a naming ceremony in the late morning, your guests may except lunch or a buffet if you’re hosting a reception afterwards.

Now you’ve considered the most important aspects of booking a naming ceremony, it’s time to move onto the planning process.
