About First Communion
The church is a vision in white, filled with young girls' wearing first communion dresses that range in styles from simple satin to beaded lace, all preparing to take part in an important rite of passage. The simple stain dress with a sash around the waist is a popular option as are gowns that are fit for a Southern belle. Small satin shrugs or long-sleeved cotton sweaters may be purchased if the ceremony is taking place in a colder climate or for a modest look in church. The girls' look like tiny brides wearing first communion veils that are attached to jeweled combs or headbands. Headpieces offer a halo of flowers with delicate ribbons flowing down the back. Many sellers on eBay offer new and used first communion shoes in styles that are formal patent leather heels or casual white leather sandals. Shopping for first communion clothing and accessories can be difficult, especially if you live in a small town, but convenient shipping options found on eBay and large inventory eliminate the hassle of dressing a little girl for her big day.
