Summer is the perfect time to schedule the bautizo for your child! Friends and family can easily come into town based on school schedules, the weather is beautiful, and the number of venues for parties is boundless!
Most baptisms occur before the child is one year old, but some people choose to do them later (throughout childhood and even adulthood). This event is meant to bring together friends and family to dedicate a child to God and bring about peace, understanding, and unify parents, godparents, and the child to help the child have an amazing life with a great support system.
Babies are dressed in white gowns, traditionally, and the parents ask a man and a woman to be the padrinos (godparents) and a special party follows the ceremony. Mariachi bands are incredibly common—if not traditional—for the parties following the baptism ceremony. Some families also choose to bring in a mariachi for the ceremony itself. As with any other Catholic church-based ceremony, a mariachi can add a nice fun twist as well as a large splash of culture and tradition.
A lot of parents choose white decorations to symbolize the purity and innocence of their child and their devotion to the Lord. Some parents opt to use white with blue or pink decorations, focusing on white.
Many baptisms will have very large families present, so small children through grandparents or great-grandparents will be present. This is why entertainment is so important if you’re having a post-bautizo celebration. It can be hard to find something to entertain everyone, but a mariachi is a perfect choice! Young and old love this music and the tradition behind our type of performance will add a bit of history and culture to this dedication of your child to the church. Let everyone dance with your little one and relax a little now that the stress of party and baptism planning is over. You and your family must not focus on keeping each other dedicated to Christ and in raising this child to be the best person they can be. Celebrate today and continue being loving parents or godparents tomorrow. Your new journey has just begun!
Our performers can supply parties and ceremonies with beautiful music everyone will love. From infant through adult baptisms, it’s a special event and we’d love to help make this day as special as we can.
