I didn’t say it wasn’t a big event, as in important, in US. It’s just mostly a private event. The christening is an event for the child, although more so a decision made by parents, whereas the baby shower is about celebrating the first time a woman is about to become a mother. And since my direct relationship is with the parent, that’s where I’d more likely go. Different for godparents.
I would be delighted to be invited to a child's christening even if not one of the god parents. The shower on the other hand wouldnt bother me. Just different views.
As for god parents, I have no thoughts at all, agree with regards the Beckham's, they like others were at the wedding via their link to charity, so cannot take that as a clue.
