Baby’s baptism is on the horizon; now it’s time to spread the word. Ask loved ones to join you for the special ceremony with the help of some festive stationery. Read on for the lowdown on baptism invitation wording, and shop our favorite baptism invitations celebrating the religious rite.

Baptism Invitation Wording

Wondering what to put on your cards? Start by following this baptism invitation template:

  • Baby’s and parents’ names
  • Baptism date, time and location(s)
  • RSVP instructions

From there, the extras are entirely up to you. Use your baptism invitations to share any additional event information you’d like guests to know, like who baby’s godparents are or that they can skip gifts. Really want to spruce things up? The stationery experts at Shutterfly recommend adding a religious quote.
