How to Choose the Perfect Communion Dress for Your Daughter
Communion is a special occasion in your daughter’s life, and you want her to look and feel beautiful and blessed on her big day. But how do you choose the perfect communion dress for her? With so many options available in the market, it can be overwhelming and confusing to find the right one. That’s why we are here to help you with some tips and recommendations from Little Eglantine, the ultimate destination for elegant communion dresses.
The meaning of the First Communion
A first communion is very important: for the first time your child will be able to receive the body of Christ. Through the host, Christ gives himself fully and completely to your child, He comes to unite with her in the deepest of her heart. Your child will then be able to live this communion of love with her Lord throughout her life. It is an important moment, full of meaning. The first step towards the journey of a lifetime. And the first communion dress is rich in symbolism. White in color, it reminds of the white garment of the baptized and marks the renewal of the baptimal vows. It symbolizes the child's purity.
Tip 1: Consider the style and fabric of the dress
The style and fabric of the communion dress should reflect your daughter’s personality and taste, as well as the significance and meaning of the communion... For example, if your daughter is more of a classic and traditional girl, you might want to opt for a simple white cotton or linen dress with a peter pan collar, puff sleeves and a bow at the waist.
If your daughter is more of a modern and trendy girl, you might want to go for a taffeta dress with 3/4 length sleeves and a pleated skirt.
If your daughter is more of a romantic and whimsical girl, you might want to choose a silk organza dress with ruffles.
Little Eglantine offers a stunning collection of handmade communion dresses in exquisite fabrics and styles. Whether you prefer cotton, linen, taffeta or silk organza, you will find the perfect dress for your girl at Little Eglantine. Each piece is finished to the highest standards and made with love in our Atelier.
Tip 2: Choose the right size and fit of the dress
The size and fit of the communion dress should be comfortable and appropriate for your daughter. You don’t want her to feel too tight or too loose in her dress, or to face any dress difficulties on her big day. You also want her to be able to move and walk gracefully in her dress, without worrying about tripping or tearing. You can opt for a full-length dress or a just-below-the-knee one, depending on what feels more comfortable for your daughter. In both cases, it will look elegant and appropriate.
Little Eglantine offers a variety of sizes and customisations for your daughter’s communion dress. We recommend that three months before the Holy Communion, you email us your daughter’s height, chest and waist at the level of the belly button so that we can anticipate her growth and recommend which size is best for a perfect fit at the time of her communion.
We are also delighted to send you fabric swatches so that you can decide which fabric you like most. You can also request for a bespoke creation providing you contact us well in advance. We also offer alterations or adjustments, such as adding or removing sleeves, changing the length of the skirt, or adding a sash or a belt.
Tip 3: Accessorize the dress with matching items
The dress is not the only thing that matters for your daughter’s communion outfit. You also need to accessorize it with matching items, such as shoes, handbags, veils, floral crowns and hair accessories. These items should harmonize with the dress and accentuate its elegance, while enhancing it and blending with it.
Little Eglantine has everything you need to complete your daughter’s communion look. You can browse our online store and find matching accessories for her communion dress. For example, you can pair our Gallia dress with a white floral headdress, a white handbag, and white ballet flats. Or you can match our Alix silk organza dress with a bespoke silk organza veil, or a floral crown.
