Just wondered what other people did with regards for paying for a Christening/Baptism/Welcome to the World Party or whatever.

me and dh have paid for both our children's post baptism parties but my friend seemed to find it odd when I mentioned it.

What did everybody else do?

We paid for our ds Christening ourselves too. Not sure who else would pay for it?

I would expect to pay fot it ourselves if we ever get round to it.

My friend's parents and parents-in-law had paid. I had never heard of that either so I thought I'd check on here!

we paid, but wasn't that much. Donation to church and our lovely priest came to the party, which was just a BBQ and drinks with cake TBH!

It wouldn't occur to me that you wouldn't pay for your own child's christening - it's you who invite people after all! We paid for dd's.
