I got so many kind compliments on this dress at our sweet niece's baptism last Sunday and let me tell you that it is definitely because of the quality. Ted Baker is amazing! I got this dress for a steal (that's why it's no longer available), but most of his dresses are pretty pricey. For an event like this, it is totally worth the extra bucks to have a dress fit and lay perfectly. The skirt always hung just right, as in not too close or too far from the body with a consistently great little wave. The big bold florals this designer uses are like nothing else I have seen. Everything that has hit stores lately is bold and vibrant (definitely worth taking a look). This dress really doesn't need much to compliment it, so I went with nude shoes and a nude clutch. As for the jewelry, it had to be gold because the chunky zipper down the back of the dress demands it. I also linked Tony's complimentary shirt and tie above in case you end up purchasing this dress in the other cut that is still available and you need a great ensemble for your man. 




The twin's baptism and reception were absolutely perfect! The babies did so well during the entire event. They are just the sweetest! We had the reception at Il Fornaio in Del Mar, which is about 20 minutes north of San Diego. It has the most beautiful ocean views, great food and the staff has been amazing with every event we have hosted there. I highly recommend their covered patio if you are looking to host an event between 50-125 people in the San Diego area. For this event, we decided to go with whites and ivories with hints of silver. It keeps with the theme of purity for the sweet babes and makes everything look very clean and streamlined. Miray did a gorgeous job on the dessert table, her mom took care of all of the beautiful party favors and I arranged all of the flowers. I really don't think the day could have gone any better. 

I hope your day is as beautiful as you are!
