What should girls wear for their First Communion?

The church where the ceremony takes place will often have their own standard dress code or guidelines to follow, however generally, a white or ivory dress - that typically falls below the knee, is often worn for a girl’s First Communion. Holy Communion dresses can include intricate detailing such as delicate beading, ruffles, bows, and lace. First Communion accessories like veils, tiaras and hair vines are beautiful finishing touches to complete her Communion outfit and make her feel like a princess.
