Whether your child is making their first holy communion with their class or or with your family at a weekend mass, the recommendations for first communion attire are simple. Traditionally, girls wear a white dress, which is a symbol of purity and a reminder of Baptism. Formal dresses for first communion or other significant religious ceremonies should follow the guidelines set by the church or place of worship. Typically, this means the dress needs to have a simple design, with sleeves and a modest neckline. Also, the dress should be tea length or longer. If you choose a sleeveless dress, it’s better to prepare a wrap or a bolero during the ceremony. Take accessories in consideration. A pair of white stockings, a veil that covers the head, white gloves, a small white handbag that can gather your daughter’s small things. A pair of white shoes made of satin or leather.
