How to Find the Perfect First Communion or Baptism Outfit for Girls

thumbnailFirst Communion or baptism is an important event in a little girl’s life, an occasion she and you will always remember. You want to choose the right dress because chances are she will keep the outfit to pass down to her daughter.

Before shopping for the perfect communion or baptism dress, ask for your church’s policy on communion outfits. Some churches are very conservative and will not allow for sleeveless dresses. In these cases, it is good to find a matching bolero or jacket to go with the dress.

Here are a few of our favorite white dresses for the special occasion.

The Best Accessories for Communion and Baptisms

Once you have the perfect communion dress for girls, make her feel like a princess with a tiara. They come in a variety of styles, from glamorous to subtle. If her dress has layers of tulle ruffles, consider a simpler tiara to avoid her looking overdressed. If you have chosen a simpler dress victoria-3_thumbnailstyle, it can be offset with an elaborate sparkling tiara. The Enchanted Shimmer Pearl – June Birthstone- Headband and the Enchanted Shimmer Victoria Child Crown are dazzling alternatives to a tiara.

You can also add a veil and elbow-length gloves. Gloves that come just to the wrist are girlish and sweet. If her dress has lace, avoid lace gloves because two kinds of lace will give the outfit a cluttered look.

thumbnailBest Shoes for First Communion and Baptism

We have several pretty white shoes that will compliment the look of your little one’s pretty dress. When it comes to little girl shoes for special occasions, classic looks are best. Not only will they look great with the dress, but they can be worn for several other occasions. Our favorites are the Pazitos Girls White Silk Rose Euro Ballet Flats and the Pazitos Girls White Silk Rose Euro Mary Janes .
