First Communion Dresses

First Communion Dresses 2016 Collection:

There is an air of sophistication in the 2016 styles in Communion dresses. In fact, while you browse, you might forget you are not on a bridal page. Dresses are becoming stylized, making it easy to match your communicant with the right dress. Boys, too, can expect some sleek styles this year.

Not only are communion dresses becoming more fashionable, but also the fabrics and embellishments are far superior. Luxurious satin, soft chiffon, organza and silk are just a few of your options, even in the less expensive dresses.

When I was a child, there were a handful of dresses from which to choose. Now a day, the search can be exhausting with so many options! Traditional communion dresses have been lacy, with frills or a sash, representing innocence. This year look for sleeker, more grown-up options. Illusion necklines and retro styling are popular this year, making for some glamorous ensembles.

You will also find classic couture, with little, or no, embellishments. These dresses do not need augmentation; the design is enough.

Many girls enjoy the princess look, and would be thrilled with a twirl-able skirt, and some pretty embroidery, or beadwork. Others want bling! Bling you will find on several of the 2016 gowns.  Don't be surprised to find sequins, rhinestones or layers of lace to spruce up the dresses a bit. Intricate beading and embroidery can turn a simple design into a work of art.

While the tradition has always required the child wear all white, but the times are changing, and you might see some tiny splashes of color this year, especially as sashes or accessories.

Boys have a greater selection in 2016 than in recent years, and style is proving popular. Who says only girls want to be fashionable? Boy's wear white, as do the girls, and this year there seems to be a wider range of options.

Some boys do not like the restriction of wearing a jacket. He will look polished in a white tuxedo shirt and tie. As with the girl's options, boys can also opt for a cummerbund or vest with a bit of color. Ivory suits bring an acceptable replacement, unless there are purists in your midst.

Choose from a simple, yet elegant suit, or splurge on a true tuxedo. You can purchase a boy's tuxedo for less than the cost to rent one! Tuxedo styles for communicants range from simple single or double-breasted options to elaborate tuxedoes with tails.

Your special communicant will look adorable in any of the new 2016 offerings.
