LDS or Mormon Blessing Ceremony
The LDS (Mormon) baby blessing ceremony is a simple and sacred celebration. It is an important day for your baby and your family and the right outfit will make it perfect. Perhaps you will want your baby in a traditional white, ivory, or pastel LDS baptism outfit like a christening gown or suit. A beautiful dress or dashing suit paired with a darling bonnet and booties will make for a memorable special day. We use only the highest quality materials which will ensure that your baby will be super comfy in any one of our soft outfits.
There are many different styles to choose from when you are trying to find the perfect blessing outfit for your baby. Traditional baby blessing clothing will differ from a more modern style, and it will also depend on whether you are looking for an elaborate or simple look. Narrowing down the aesthetic you want for your baby's blessing outfit will be a key factor in finding the perfect look.

- Do babies have to wear white for LDS blessing? It is traditional for babies to wear white but it is not a requirement. Typically a white or ivory dress or suit will be used for the ceremony. But this stems more from tradition rather than a set requirement for a blessing. It is likely that you will find the majority of baby blessing clothing in either white or ivory, as this is the most common choice. However, it can be possible to find pastel or pastel accented baby boy blessing suits and rompers. If you wish to stick with the traditional white or ivory colors, then it is always fun to add colorful accessories, such as bracelets, headbands, or socks, that provide another element. If you are planning on taking pictures it can be a good idea to have the family dress in colors that either compliment or contrast with the baby's blessing clothes.
- How old are babies when they are blessed for LDS? The decision of when to bless a baby is ultimately up to the parents. It should be done before the child turns 8 years old. A blessing it typically done before the baby turns 2, but this is a decision that the parents and members of the church make. Since most children are blessed by the church before the age of 2, most blessing clothing and accessories are made for babies around this same age. If you are trying to find blessing clothing for an older child, it might be best to look for more generalized terms such as flower girl dresses or formal wear.
How to prepare for your LDS Blessing?
There are a few things that you will want to make sure are taken care of before having your baby's blessing ceremony:
- Schedule a Date. It is common that a fast Sunday will be the date that your baby's blessing will occur. You will want to make sure that you schedule this out well in advance so that family and friends are given enough notice to come as well as provide the proper amount of time to get any other necessary arrangements in order.
- Extend blessing circle invitations. Make sure that you reach out to those who you want to assist in the blessing. These close family members and friends help to make this event more special by being a part of it. Knowing that they will be able to take part helps to alleviate some of the last-minute stress.
- Pick out your baby’s blessing clothing. Having the perfect outfit picked out for your baby's blessing can be stressful, but it is also a fun addition to this special ceremony. Whether you want to go with a traditional baby blessing dress or a more modern baby blessing romper, Baby Beau & Belle will be available to help you find the perfect outfit.

For your baby girl's blessing there will be many different styles of LDS baptism dresses to choose from. These LDS baptism dresses can be elaborate or minimal depending on your preference. At Baby Beau & Belle we use high quality lace and materials that create a delicate look that is timeless. You may wish to consider the time or year and setting that you will be having the blessing. For example if you plan to have an outdoor party during the warmer months, it would be best to find a shorter dress and a bonnet or hat to cover her head. Accessories are a fun way to add color and a unique personalization to your baby's outfit. Lace bonnets and headbands can have small pops of color and unique detailing that makes her LDS baptism dress more unique.
