A Confirmation is one of the Sacraments that we take to affirm our place in the Church we choose. It is usually held years after our Baptism as a ceremonial reaffirmation of our Faith. Like a Baptism, this event is also very special for the person and families involved. Now that the once baptized child already has his/her own understanding of the world, he/she is ready to renew and further strengthen the faith that his/her family has introduced.
The moment of confirmation is highly cherished because it symbolizes being one with God, the maker of all things. Because this is a special event, having your customized confirmation gowns can bring even more feelings of solemnity and humility for such a sacred and blessed event.
Nowadays, there are many things that you can do yourself since the Internet offers a vast array of DIY (Do-it-yourself) guides. This is very interesting because you yourself can make the things you want. Among the other many things you can do yourself are special types of gowns.
For those of you who are part of a church, it will be very important to have your own essential garment to be used. Since it is now easier to look for materials that you would want to use for your custom made confirmation gowns, you can easily control the outcome of your own confirmation robe.
You can add an accent or a stole to your gown.
The stole can be your very own by designing it uniquely as you would want it to look. Instead of the standard shape, your stole can be a short one with a different shape. You can also add embroideries on your stole but if you don’t like stoles and you want to wear the robe as it is, then you can place the embroidery on the gown itself.
The embroidered sign can be any symbol you want or the symbol for the congregation or church you are a part of. Moreover, you can also accessorize it with an overlay to make the whole garment complete. Overlays are perfect with long robes, they give a nicer touch and a homey feel to the garment but it doesn't take away the solemnity of the garment.
Since it’s your confirmation gown, you should choose the color that you would want on your gown. The color may be specifically in tune with the church or the congregation. It’s very important to sync your robe with the church you are with to make it look as one. The style and even the details should be made and personally picked out by you to make it really custom designed.
To give you a better idea and a better perspective when you are starting from scratch, you can always go online and search for custom choir robe designs and samples. Yet at the end of the day, your confirmation gown is just an accessory. The most important thing is your faith which is strengthened and further renewed after the ceremony.
