Custom First Communion Dresses
by Hanna

One of the most formal occasions in the Catholic Church is the rite of First Holy Communion. First Communion dresses are often more like gowns, made of white satin, silk or similar material layered with organza and adorned with lace and beads.

A tiara or headdress with veil completes the design. Traditionally floor-length, First Communion dresses can also be hemmed mid-calf.

First Communion dresses are meant to symbolize the communion rite. Angelically lovely in her First Communion dress, a young girl cannot but feel the importance and significance of the religious experience she partakes in.

Memories to treasure

A Quality Keepsake

Quality First Communion dresses are usually custom made by dressmakers experienced in creating wedding gowns upon which First Communion dresses are modeled. The quality of the dress is in keeping with the significance of its use.

Because First Communion dresses often become keepsakes, it makes sense to request a zippered Keepsake Bag in which to preserve this important garment.
