Flowers on the head just makes the baptism classier, obvi.

Just make her a hat and they rest of the baptism will be perfect, lo prometo.
And if there’s no hat, rest assured that abuelita will spend 30-45 minutes making sure your sleeves are just the right amount of puffy.

The more complicated the fabric, the more God seeps in. #basicknowledge
Embroidery is also very important for the big day.
Mainly because mami wants to make sure you shine in front of everyone in church. “It all reflects on the family, mija.” – Every Latina mother…EVER.
Everyone knows that the bigger the dress the more you love God.
