  • Choosing the Right Confirmation Dress

    In the church, confirmation is regarded as one’s coming of age ceremony. A special event for the faithful, confirmation symbolizes your child’s relationship with God and their rite of initiation into the next step of their Christianity. There are a number of things parents should consider when helping their daughter choose the right confirmation dress. At Churchings.com, we know it is important for you to focus on your child’s big day and what it means for her faith, not picking out clothes. That is why we want to share a few helpful tips when choosing dresses for your daughter. Dress Length – As with most church ceremonies and events, modesty is an element of great importance when choosing your attire. Dresses which feature short or cap sleeves are a great choice. Sleeveless dresses and dresses with spaghetti straps can still be options as long as your daughter is willing to wear a shawl or cardigan. Dress Color – The color of your daughter’s dress is important, especially because some churches have rules on colors and designs for the dresses being worn during the ceremony. Due to symbolizing purity, white is the traditional color of confirmation dresses, but other colors such as baby pink or ivory can be acceptable. Always check with your church before purchasing a dress that is a color other than white to confirm it is allowed. Dress Cost – Dresses can be either expensive or affordable, and it is up to you to choose what price range you are willing to shop at. If designer dresses have your eye, there is a good chance it will cost more than most other dresses. Utilizing a store, especially an online store, which deals exclusively with attire for Christian events and ceremonies such as Churchings.com is a great way to find high-quality dresses without going over your designed budget. When choosing a confirmation dress for your daughter, do not forget to take her opinion into account as well. It is her big day and she will be the one wearing the dress throughout the event, so it is important she is wearing a dress that is comfortable to her.

  • Different Types of Vestments

    The term “vestment” is used to describe special clothing that is worn by the people who are head of the religious community and conduct the worship service. Common types of vestments include: Robes Surplices Albs Cassocks Chasubles Vestments are used almost universally, although in many modern denominations only the choir actually wears vestments. Why are Vestments Worn? Vestments, though evolved, have their origins in the ordinary clothing of the first century. Today, vestments are worn over street clothes and are used to serve a number of practical purposes: Vestments conceal the distractions of modern street clothing Vestments remove the need to define “appropriate attire” for ministers Vestments are meant to remind the congregation that the ministers who are performing the service are not acting on their own, but are performing in their official capacities Clergy Robes   Clergy robes are a special form of vestment that marks clergy who have not attained a doctorate degree or who choose not to wear their doctoral robes. These clergy robes are essentially a modified form of the graduation baccalaureate robe. This is likely due to the fact that graduation robes have evolved from a similar type of robe over time. Clergy robes are also very similar to judicial robes, though they often feature a built-in stole and/or a wide stripe running down both sides of the front. These decorative stripes are often adorned with religious symbols.
