How to Choose a First Holy Communion Dress

When choosing a dress for your child’s first holy communion, simplicity is key. Simplicity, however, does not need to be boring: we love adding gorgeous lace appliques and floral details to our designs to allow your little ones to express themselves and feel fun and girly. These styles are perfect for church as we have many options with sleeves and that fall below the knee. If opting for a sleeveless dress, we have some beautiful wraps for added warmth and coverage. Check them out here.
