A young girl’s First Communion is an important day for both her and her family. Finding the right dress that follows the specific guidelines of your church whilst still making her feel special on her big day can feel overwhelming. Here at GWM Wedding, we have a fabulous collection of communion dresses that you and your daughter are sure to love.
Traditionally white or ivory, communion dresses are designed to highlight the significance and holiness of this day to your daughter as a young Catholic. Given that this is such an important rite of passage in the Church, it is key that the dress is modest and age-appropriate. It should fall either knee-length or below and feature a thicker strap or completely covered shoulders. If in doubt, talk to your church and find out if they have any specific requirements. Our dresses are designed so that your daughter feels comfortable, stylish, and most importantly, is appropriately dressed for the tone of the event. From simple, flattering gowns to a more modern look, our stylists can help you find the right dress for your little one’s first communion.
A traditional look, Grace is a tea-length, a-line dress with a satin bodice, chantilly lace skirt, belted with a bow. This is perfect if you are looking for something simple yet classic.
A satin a-line, Natalie brings a little glam with flowers embroidered over the straps, embellished with pearls.
Dorothy is perfect if your church requires a dress that doesn’t highlight the waist. Featuring a tulle overlay and 3D embroidered butterflies, it’s whimsical and shows your daughter’s uniqueness.
We also offer a custom design service, if you have a specific vision in mind, or if you come in and are inspired by our collection. we love to work with you to create a unique dress just for you!

*We make all our ready-to-wear/couture gowns either made to size or made to measure. Made-to-measure wedding dresses mean that all alterations are included in the price as long as your size stays the same; for made-by-size gowns, these come at a more affordable price, but if alterations are required, that cost will be on top.
