My dd will be baptized in a private catholic baptism next month. I was raised in a Church that doesn't practice infant baptism and I have never been to a private catholic baptism (only witnessed the ones during mass). So I have no idea what is expected, and I need some advice about what typical etiquette is. Do I send invitations or is e-mail/word of mouth acceptable? Do I invite only Catholics (DH family is catholic mine is not) or family and friends of all faiths? Is a reception expected? If so who hosts, parents, or godparents, or both? Is cake and punch acceptable for a reception or is a full meal expected? Other etiquette I might not know?
Anything information on your experiences with infant baptisms you've attended would be much appreciated.
