There is something truly elegant and graceful about the First Communion. This longstanding Christian tradition of young girls and boys receiving a Host has always involved dressing up in special clothes. The boys dress in their finest suits and girls wear special white dresses and sometimes a veil. Like a wedding dress, a Holy Communion dress might be worn only once, and even though this religious event is not about dressing up, it’s perfectly reasonable that your little girl wants to wear a beautiful dress. Madame Bridal offers a hand-picked selection of first communion dresses that you are bound to fall in love with.
First Communion is an important time in a Christian child's life, especially those from Catholic families. The ceremony of Holy Communion is how a new generation takes their first steps on the journey of faith. Such an important day calls for important, beautiful clothing. Our sweet and sophisticated children’s collection features gorgeous girls’ gowns in sizes 2 to 14, which are classic and timeless with an edge, as well as affordable. These dresses are made from the finest fabrics and they showcase exquisite details, superbly crafted and detailed with flowing fabrics, sheer elegance for that special day.
The dresses for the Communion should symbolize purity, so modesty is the key. The dress should be modest, tasteful and formal, neither extravagant nor casual. The styles range from simple tea-length A-line to more elaborate Italian-style communion dresses with tiered skirt and lace details. Whether you need an elegant floor length gown or something more sparkly like a handkerchief skirt embellished with crystals and pearlescent drape beadwork on the bodice, you are sure to find a dress your daughter will absolutely love. The collection features sleeveless dresses with high necklines and also a variety of sleeves, from cap sleeves to sheer short sleeves.
Fabrics include satin, duchess satin, silk, organza, crystal organza, and tulle. Lace communion dresses are very elegant and traditional, but they have been back in style in recent years. Delicate embellishments like delicate beading, satin bows or flowers make for sweet and innocent style perfect for your little princess. White is the dominant color in the collection, considering that it is a traditional option, but there are also dresses with colored accents, such as a sash or flowers. Since the color white is not officially required, some parents may choose other colors like ivory, soft pink, or even light blue. Any of these styles goes beautifully with a headpiece like a tiara, or a wreath of flowers.
