Communion Dresses

First Communion Dresses

Our Holy Communion dresses are designed to create a look that’s both classic and memorable for one of the biggest events in your little person’s life: their first communion.

With sizes appropriate for girls from 7 and upwards, our outfit designs and accompanying accessories are the perfect complement to Catholic, Lutheran and Anglican ceremonies following your daughter’s confirmation.

While a young girl’s first Eucharist is predominantly a sacred occasion, we also know that many families take this opportunity to celebrate their daughter’s coming of age and progression towards adulthood. It’s become trendy for photoshoots to be associated with this religious turning point, so we’ve made sure that no matter what you have in mind, your little one will look the part for the occasion.

Choosing a Holy Communion dress

The most important part of choosing an outfit for the occasion is making sure that it fits with the guidelines and recommendations of your individual parish. Different churches have specific requirements and preferred styles – from weddings to very relaxed, ivory dress recommendations.

Whatever your preference, you want to make sure your daughter will be able to look great and fit in on the day, so it’s always best to check before you start shopping.

Choosing the right style

At A Little Lacey, we have a number of outfits in appropriate styles for your little angel’s ideal look. Here are some things to keep in mind when you’re choosing an outfit for her First Communion:

  • Length: Designs should be at least midi length, completely covering the knee, but can also be tea length (mid-calf) or maxi length (falling on the ankle).
  • Sleeves: Some parishes are more specific about their requirements for covering the arms within the confines of the church. While the classic bolero is now a dated silhouette, we have a variety of options with wide straps, capped sleeves and long sleeves, depending on the needs of your event and the climate.

It’s all about the fit

After you have a rough idea of what your parish is looking for, you can move onwards to find a fit that is right for your daughter.

Our easy-to-use sizing system and specific measurements are always available for our creations. If you’re buying in advance, remember to leave a little room for growth!

Here at A Little Lacey, you don't need to worry about buying months before the event. We pride ourselves on quick and easy shipping, straight to your doorstep from our atelier in Queensland, Australia. Browse our collection now.
