Shopping first communion dresses would be a funny experience for the parents and her young girls, but if you want to picking out the right dress(including the style, color, length)is not easy. Here are some suggestions you should know, read on and hope these would help you.
Follow the church’s color rule. The only appropriate color for a communion dress is white. Therefore, don’t entertain the idea of buying communion dresses that aren’t white…unless the church has specifically said it’s OK to do so.
Consider the right style. Many people have a different opinion regarding what is modest and what is not. Many churches have very clear rules for the style of dress that can be worn for first communion. Such rules may specify that the communion dresses must have sleeves or, if sleeveless, they must have a matching jacket to be worn over them, etc. Therefore, it’s a good idea to check with your church before you purchase a first communion dress.
Another important aspect of finding the right dress is the length. Short dresses that rest above the knees are not appropriate. The appropriate length is below the knees. Many people choose communion dresses that are tea length, but ankle length is also considered okay.
Have a budget in mind. And, if you aren’t careful, you could easily surpass it. The good news is that there are beautiful communion dresses in all price ranges, ensuring that you’ll be able to find one within your budget. Just make sure you are up front with the associate assisting you about what your budget is before your little one begins trying dresses on.
