Your daughter’s First Holy Communion will be an important step in her spiritual life, as well as a celebrated family event. Although the dress code for children receiving the Eucharist was strict in the past, this is no longer the case with many churches. Here’s how to choose the right accessories to complement first communion dresses.

Ask Your Church

The first thing to do is find out about proper accessories from your church and shop based on this. Even if the church hasn’t provided any guidelines, informal wear is generally unacceptable for serious events such as First Holy Communion, as this is a ceremony which signifies coming into adulthood. White continues to be the most common color for communion dresses and accessories.

Communion Accessory Guidelines
There are many styles to choose from when you shop for First Communion accessories. Here again, there are some guidelines to follow:
Gloves
Gloves may or may not be worn at the ceremony; in fact, some churches frown upon wearing them. If your church allows gloves, satin or the lace gloves above from Angels are both very appropriate for the occasion.

Sweaters and Shawls
Adding a light sweater or shawl to a sleeveless dress is a great idea, as it can allow your daughter to wear the dress she loves, as well as comply with any rules with regard to sleeves.

Shoes and Other Accessories

Your daughter’s shoes should be as modest and comfortable as her dress. Girls ballet flats in white will keep her comfortable, but you can also choose a shoe with a low heel.
Your daughter may also wear white pantyhose and add a white purse to her outfit if this is considered to be acceptable by the church.
Although many girls will wear a white veil with their dress, a floral headband like the one is just as acceptable and pretty.
