What are your kids wearing...

for their first communions? The one thing I have been disappointed with is how not all the little girls are 'dressed up' in white. Some are wearing nice spring dresses. Boys are wearing 'nice' clothes. I know for my niece and nephew, they wore a .... crap... Can't think of the term... but a white 'gown' like what the alter servers would wear. (I want to say Vestment, but I know that's wrong)

My poor Margaret will be wearing a handmade by me, Heritage style/smocked dress. *lol* Perhaps I should start it now so it will be ready next year!! *lol*

Here in small town FL the girls still wear white dresses and the traditional veils - some wear their sister's or mother's dress and/or veil.

White dresses for girls and dark dress pants w/shirt and tie for boys has been the norm for all my children with FHC in Alabama, Germany, Korea, Florida and Germany.... most girls wear a veil.....


My eldest ds had his FHC at a cathedral in Germany... it was mandatory that there be no bare shoulders.... the DRE brought a few white sweaters and she did need to pass them out since parents didn't listen :(
