The Baby Naming Ceremony – a sort of civil baptism – is growing in popularity in Las Vegas as an after-the-wedding family celebration.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) June 21, 2010
Weddings Las Vegas, the premier provider of weddings and wedding packages in Las Vegas has added the very special Baby Naming Ceremony to its list of services to brides, grooms, and families from around the world.
Many people think of the Baby Naming Ceremony as a civil baptism, in which the baby’s presence in the family and in the world is celebrated – along with good wishes for his or her future life and contributions to humanity. The ceremony officially names the child in the presence of family and friends, and includes a series of questions for the parents, the grandparents (if present), and the family’s circle of friends. They are all asked to bring up the baby in love and respect, instilling him/her with confidence and tolerance, and emphasizing their various roles in the baby’s emotional and intellectual growth. The parents are also asked to renew their wedding vows in the presence of their child. Additionally, a few poems and readings are interspersed throughout the ceremony.
“Many of our Baby Naming Ceremonies have been celebrated with couples whom we have previously married,” says Aurore Leigh Barrett, President of Weddings Las Vegas, “but as it becomes more widely publicized, we are receiving increasing inquiries from couples who were married elsewhere – not only from the United States but especially from the United Kingdom and Canada.”
Not that they really need another reason to come to Las Vegas, but the Baby Naming Ceremony as presented by Weddings Las Vegas is a reason with great meaning for the new family – almost as important as the wedding itself. “A trip to Las Vegas for this meaningful ceremony,” says one father, “ is the perfect pairing of style and substance.” The Baby Naming Ceremony can be performed in just about any location used for weddings, but it is especially suited for At-Home or In-Suite celebrations.
Recognizing the reality of today’s world in which many couples already have a baby at the time of their wedding, the Baby Naming Ceremony can even be incorporated into the wedding ceremony or celebrated separately afterwards.
