When your little girl takes her first Communion, as a parent, you can’t help but swell with pride. As one of the Seven Holy Sacraments, the First Communion is a chance for you to watch her take one large step closer to God. It is no wonder that this is one of the most celebrated moments in a child’s young life. When it’s time to celebrate the incredible sacrament of Communion, Puddles Collection can help your little princess look and feel as beautiful as you always see her.
Narrow it down
As such an important and auspicious occasion, it is no wonder that so much importance is placed on the Communion dress. Not since her Baptism has she dressed in such a beautifully pure outfit, and she likely won’t again until her wedding. Her Communion dress can be saved for years and even passed down to her children, just like a wedding dress often is.
The parallels between the day of your little girl’s first Communion and her wedding could not be more pronounced. She will walk down the aisle in her beautiful white gown until she reaches the altar, where she will be joined with Christ. Her first Communion dress will echo those parallels, with many Communion dresses being simply smaller versions of wedding dresses.
One of the most common styles for Communion dresses is the ball gown. She’ll feel like the princess she is with her flowing gown. She won’t be able to stop twirling and watch the layers billow beneath her. To complete the princess feel, try capped sleeves, complete with ornate flowers and beautiful sashes.
Opt for elegance with ivory or white satin dresses. You can have her pair a spaghetti strapped dress with a matching jacket to give her the level of movement she’s used to without losing any of the charm of the formal occasion.
Another beautiful option is a gathered skirt, which adds layers and volumes to the ball gown look, without sacrificing any comfort. The gathered points can be adorned with flowers, ribbons, buttons, or simply sewn to let the design of the dress speak for itself.
The square neckline on many Communion dresses somehow manages to look both sophisticated and innocent at the same time. Decorate the cut with lace or draping off the shoulder flowers. Tie the sash at the back and watch your little girl transform into a miniature woman.
