First Holy Communion Dresses
A First Holy Communion is a special occasion for families and friends to celebrate a child taking communion for the first time. For girls, First Holy Communion dresses are typically white with lace. The latest dresses to mark the special event retain the classic style of First Holy Communion dresses. Most designs are traditional white. Some winter communion dresses are a richer ivory, while spring and summer communion dresses are a lighter or classic white. The same shades of white often found in wedding dresses are common in girl's communion dresses. While white is the most popular color choice for a communion dress, other variations include silver, pink, lavender and pastels.
Accenting First Holy Communion Dresses
Girl's dresses for communion are typically accented with a matching veil, tiara or other headdress. Sleeve lengths vary, from full long sleeved designs to short sleeve and sleeveless designs. Sleeveless designs are a popular choice since they allow for greater range of motion, a plus for younger girls lacking the patience to sit still. Additional accessories for a First Holy Communion dress include matching purses, seasonal flowers and gloves. Classic all-white arrangements are popular - although variations include red or pink roses or pink or white carnations. Hand-tied or handheld bouquets are also popular communion dress accessories this year. Unique accessories to further enhance a girl's communion dress include:
• Flower baskets with matching seasonal flowers
• Matching mini purses or handbags
• Matching lace or satin gloves
