Last month, we welcomed our baby girl, Cambria, into the Christian world. The baptismal ceremony was held in our village church—the same church where my husband and I got married! Meanwhile, the reception took place in our house—also known as the #FraggyHome. It was a lovely and intimate celebration with families and close friends. Some of them, we haven’t seen since the beginning of the pandemic. So it was also their first time meeting Cambria. Because it was a very special occasion, we wanted Cambria to wear something extraordinary—a baptism dress by Beyond White Baby.
Beyond White Baby
Beyond White Baby makes bespoke, one-of-a-kind baptismal clothes. They specialize in custom designs, so no two dresses are alike. You won’t see the same embroidery, lace, or beadwork on another piece. Additionally, each breathtaking baptism dress is made from the finest materials and fabrics.
Cambria’s Baptism Dress
They made the most beautiful 2-in-1 piña silk gown for Cambria. It came with a detachable skirt, bloomers, and accessories (a bonnet, ribbon headband, and pair of booties). A few weeks before Cambria’s baptism, I simply filled out their measurement form online. They provided a very thorough guide, so I didn’t have to worry about what exactly to measure. Mom Tip: take your baby’s measurements with a measuring tape while your baby is asleep.
They delivered the gown two days before Cambria’s baptism day. So there was more than enough time to fit it in case of alterations. However, they assured me that they added a 2 to 3-inch allowance from the time I measured Cambria. This way, in case she grew bigger, the gown would still fit. And indeed, she grew! Nevertheless, the gown fit perfectly.
A Timeless Heirloom Piece
Cambria’s baptism dress is definitely an heirloom piece that I can pass down to her future sibling should we decide to have another baby. It was one of the highlights of her baptism day. In fact, my family still talks about how beautiful her gown was.
