Irish First Communion Dresses Keep Heritage

First Communion is a Roman Catholic ceremony where a child first receives the sacrament of the Eucharist. It is considered one of the most important times in the life of a Roman Catholic and is a big celebration. The person will remember it his or her whole life as the moment they became part of the Church. Girls traditionally wear white, like little brides, that represents purity. Remember, white comes in many subtle shades so pick the one that looks the best with the complexion of your child. The Irish communion dress is one of the favorites as it is generally very elaborate and beautiful.


A popular Irish communion dress is polyester with multi layers. It is fully lined with embroidered shamrocks, scooped neck and short bell sleeves. The hemline is scalloped and embroidered with a large pre-tied bow in the back. There are accessories such as a shamrock headband with veil, Irish shoulder strap purse with shamrocks, shamrock and pearl knit gloves and Claddagh girl’s anklet socks. There are special underskirts too, that give the full effect.


Your wedding gown can be transformed into your daughter’s Irish communion dress. There are many possibilities for design, depending on the design of your dress. You can find websites that offer this service and you can request the special additions that make an Irish themed dress. This time in your child’s life creates a bond between mothers and daughters and grandmothers. To see her in your wedding dress would be amazingly special.


When choosing the dress, whether it is an Irish communion dress or not there are some things you need to find out. What are the guidelines your Parish wishes you to follow? Do they recommend a length for the skirt such as tea length or full length? Short skirts are not recommended these days. Do they allow sleeveless dresses? Some placed do and some discourage it. Does everyone wear Communion veils? The guidelines differ from place to place so your friends experience may not be right for you. Even your own experience may no longer be the norm. The dress is the focal point but shouldn’t outshine the child. Beading is still very popular but not as concentrated as in the past. Some A-line dresses look good on larger children. It will take some thought to get the right look for your child.

There are over forty styles to choose from and if you buy online you can get your dress made to measure. The prices have a broad range and most places offer payment plans so you can get the dress you really want but may not be able to afford in one payment. The styles range from the simply elegant to high fashion and it is worth the effort to find exactly what you want. This dress will be a keepsake and she will want to look her best for all the photos that are going to be taken at the party afterwards.
