Today I'm here to talk about First Communion traditions and what to expect. As important as this holy ceremony is, outfitting your little girl will be as easy as cake if you stick to NancyAugust.com for help!
The First Communion is traditionally an important occasion for Roman Catholic families. It is the child's first reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. The First Communion in Roman Catholic churches typically takes place at age seven or eight, depending on the country you live in. There are usually large family gatherings and parties to celebrate this special, elaborate and unforgettable event.
First Communion Dress
Girls often wear a fancy and elegant dress, a headdress, gloves and many other accessories, all in white. The white symbolizes purity. Traditionally, some girls wear a dress known as the First Communion Dress along with veils, tiaras, necklaces or other accessories passed down to them from their older sisters, mothers or grandmothers, making the First Communion especially intimate. Because the First Communion is held in a church, a conservative and traditional style dress is important. Many girls wear either a dress that covers the shoulders or they pair a bolero or cardigan with a sleeveless dress.
