Choosing Your Daughter’s Communion Dress
For many, First Communions are a milestone event in a young girl’s life as well as the family’s. In religions like Catholicism, First Holy Communions are when a person first receives the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Many churches focus on the Eucharist being a very central part of the religion so this day is considered to be a very important step in a person’s faith. Children who are participating will generally be seven or eight years old during this occasion.
The ceremony is very important with the traditional clothing being very significant as well. Little girls generally wear white dresses in order to symbolize purity, and at So Sweet Boutique we have quite an exquisite collection that will please both parents and children.
So Sweet Boutique carries a wide variety of First Holy Communion dresses for your little princess. It’s already a special day; why not enhance the experience with an outfit that will make her feel beautiful and comfortable?
When purchasing a dress, you will need to think about what the occasion calls for, what she wants to look like and what you want her to look like. This sounds quite difficult, but we have a large enough assortment that we are absolutely positive you will find something you and your little one will love.
Length – When shopping for a dress, determining what length works is of utmost importance. Most communion dresses tend to be on the longer side. The highest ones are usually midway between the ankles and the knees, while the longest ones touch the floor and extend into a train. Her comfort and ability to walk down the aisle should be the biggest priority. While some girls may feel more comfortable with their legs covered, shorter dresses provide for easier movement.
Neckline and Sleeves – There are a variety of necklines available within our First Communion dresses. We offer strapless ones, halter tops, spaghetti straps, one-shoulders and several others. For a First Holy Communion taking place in the summer, a dress with less coverage may suit the weather a bit better. However, if her First Communion is taking place in a church that runs a bit chilly, she may enjoy more coverage. Certain churches may also require a sleeve. In this case, some of our designers can actually add these for an additional fee. As another option, we offer boleros and wraps, too.
Lace, Ruffles and Tulle…Oh My! - While white A-line dresses are usually the tradition, your daughter may want something with a bit of flair. We have plenty of budget-friendly options and couture choices that offer lots of lace, ruffles and tulle. Details like rosettes, bows and embroidery make these extra special and let her stand out in a crowd.
Budget – Budget is obviously a very important factor when shopping for your daughter’s First Communion dress. So Sweet Boutique offers plenty of affordably-priced options that are absolutely gorgeous. We also carry many couture communion dresses that are definitely worth their expense. We encourage you to remember that First Communion dresses are often passed down from mother to daughter, so if you invest in one, she may enjoy saving it for a daughter of her own one day. Our Communion dresses can also be used during other occasions like fancy birthday parties, formal events and Easter celebrations.
Accessories – Complete her First Communion outfit with accessories. We offer traditional final touches like white gloves, veils, hair wreaths, tiaras, bolero jackets and wraps, purses, slips and lace socks. Give her a special gift set to make this experience even more memorable. We have First Communion candle and rosary sets that she will treasure for years to come.
