One of the most important events in your child’s life is their First Holy Communion. It is a religious celebration that is observed by some of the stricter Christian denominations such as the Catholics. The First Holy Communion celebration is a day when a child gets the Holy Eucharist for the first time in their life. It is a re-enactment of the last supper.
Taking it indicates that the child understands the demands and challenges of the Christian faith and is willing to follow Jesus.
The First Communion is taken by children between the ages of 7 and 14. In most cases, they are usually in their 2nd grade at school. This ceremony normally has a strict dress code for the girls and the boys. Read on to learn about the cute dresses girls should wear on this important day.
What sort of communion dresses should your daughters wear?
It is customary for girls to wear ivory or white dresses which have simple patterns or cuts on them. The dresses should fall below the knee or be as long as their calves. An example of a communion dress for girls is the short sleeved satin dress combined with an organza skirt. Some other examples are the sleeveless lace and organza dresses too.
Your princess can also wear an illusion neckline white dress combined with a peplum waist made of lace. Embroidery is a popular style for flower girl dresses. It is usually applied in the bodice or organza of communion dresses too. White beads can also be added as décor on the dresses to make the dress unique in the occasion. More about this can be found at Sophia’s Style. Other interesting example of a hand-crafted design that produces beautiful results, with embroidery and lace fabrics, are the children’s dresses produced by Bela Pequena: “Vestidos de Bebê ‘Baby Clothes’ ” – a Brazilian factory that sends its baby dresses to dozens of countries around the world.

These should be white or ivory in color with no heel on them. You should follow the guidelines above to ensure that your princess looks amazing during her First Communion.
